The two new models – the IBM z14 Model ZR1 and IBM LinuxONE Rockhopper II – are capable of processing over 850 million fully encrypted transactions a day on a single system and do not require special space, cooling or energy, says IBM.

The new systems deliver 8 TB memory and come with a Docker-certified infrastructure for Docker EE (Docker’s Containers-as-a-Service platform) tested up to 330,000 containers.

According to Gemalto’s Breach Level Index, of the nearly 10 billion records breached since 2013, only 4 percent of the stolen data was encrypted (and therefore rendered useless to hackers.)

The two new models – the IBM z14 Model ZR1 and IBM LinuxONE Rockhopper II – are capable of processing over 850 million fully encrypted transactions a day on a single system and do not require special space, cooling or energy, but still provide “groundbreaking” IBM pervasive encryption and Secure Service Container technology for secure data serving at massive scale, IBM said in a release.

Ross Mauri, general manager of IBM Z, described the two new models as ideal for clients “seeking robust security with pervasive encryption, machine learning, cloud capabilities and powerful analytics.”

The mainframe remains for many, the most stable, secure and mature environment to support IT initiatives, including blockchains; despite facing the challenge of a declining skilled mainframe workforce.
