Unleash the power to innovate with IBM LinuxONE Community Cloud

What is IBM LinuxONE?

IBM LinuxONE is a family of servers built to host enterprise Linux applications. Its architecture, known as s390x, is designed to pack more compute power into every CPU core. This unlocks the ability to drive more processing with fewer cores and can translate to substantial cost savings in cases where software license costs are sized by the core. Additional savings are achieved by having to power, cool, and maintain fewer servers in your data center. Want to get your hands dirty and kick the tires? Try the IBM LinuxONE Community Cloud, a no-charge, 24 x 7, enterprise-grade, open access, shared public cloud environment on IBM's LinuxONE platform. Developers, students, professors, entrepreneurs, or anyone from all over the world can sign up for 120-day access to a virtual server with full access to develop, test, or run open source applications on LinuxONE, or to access any of the other services offered.
