  • The year was 1998.

  • Linux, now known as the versatile

  • and open operating system

  • powering everything from the world's fastest supercomputers,

  • to phones and self-driving cars,

  • was just emerging as the

  • hot new operating system for startups,

  • early e-businesses,

  • and edge servers.

  • But Linux had yet to make an impact

  • on the enterprise market.

  • Its open-source nature,

  • now the standard for the industry,

  • was still a novel concept.

  • The idea of freely sharing code

  • and collaborating over the Internet

  • was even deemed countercultural and risky.

  • But open innovation is at the core of IBM's DNA,

  • and it saw the operating system's

  • vast potential for enterprise.

  • Then, in 2000,

  • IBM became the first enterprise IT company

  • to go all in on Linux

  • opening up its IBM Z mainframe

  • to the open Linux operating system.

  • This proved a pivotal moment in history,

  • kickstarting two decades of open innovation.

  • Bringing Linux to Z

  • made the unique capabilities of IBM Z—

  • the ability to securely manage billions of transactions

  • portable across applications.

  • Simply put, this means the workloads could easily

  • be moved from one computer system to another,

  • allowing for much greater flexibility

  • in managing data and applications.

  • In 2015

  • IBM accelerated its momentum with LinuxONE.

  • The most powerful and secure enterprise server,

  • designed for the new application economy.

  • Which leads to today: the era of hybrid cloud.

  • Enabled by Red Hat OpenShift,

  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux

  • and IBM Cloud Paks,

  • IBM Z is built to lead in the hybrid cloud era.

  • Two-thirds of the Fortune 100 run on IBM Z systems.

  • And more than 90 percent of the top 100

  • IBM Z enterprises are running Linux on Z,

  • including banks, airlines and retailers.

  • But what makes IBM Z so ideal for this environment?

  • Today, clients are moving to the hybrid cloud.

  • With that comes a demand for secure,

  • agile,

  • and continuously available platforms

  • to keep data secure and manageable

  • across different architectures.

  • Running on Linux.

  • IBM z15 and LinuxONE

  • were designed for exactly this scenario.

  • The formula:

  • linking IBM Z's unique

  • transaction capabilities and security

  • with the power and flexibility

  • of Red Hat's open hybrid cloud portfolio.

  • And at the heart of it all is Linux.

  • The crucial foundation

  • to the success of the hybrid cloud.

  • 20 years ago,

  • IBM helped boost Linux from the lofty idea

  • of a free and open-source operating system

  • to a broad collaborative platform for innovation.

  • And today,

  • IBM is positioned to help clients

  • accelerate their cloud journeys like never before.
