Why not create a slushfund for zSeries?

Seems like a good if off the wall idea, so I posted it here.
Why not include extra capacity- say 10%- with every mainframe shipped, as a new workload sandbox? Just call it a slush fund for customers. Its effectively free money, off the books, to be applied to new workloads, for new developments. Don’t charge $125k for it.


  1. Thanks for your kind words over on the Mainframe blog.

    I’ll let you know if anyone contacts me from – but I doubt it, because I’m too small a fish in the IBM mainframe world.
