Cut MLC with reporting insights and predictive planning

Cost Analyzer for zEnterprise

Understand what’s driving MLC with the easy-to-use dashboards, intelligent discovery, and predictive analytics of Cost Analyzer for zEnterprise®.

  • Easily identify key drivers of peak resource usage that contribute to MLC costs.
  • Get insightful reports and model the cost impact of changes, while tracking and forecasting your MLC budget.
  • Predict the costs associated with deploying new applications and making changes to your workloads.

Dynamically automate and optimize capacity settings

Intelligent Capping for zEnterprise

Intelligent Capping for zEnterprise® helps you reduce and manage peaks to save on MLC costs without impacting service levels.

  • Protect the most critical workloads from being capped and manage the cost of non-critical workloads.
  • Reclaim unused capacity for significant savings.
  • Confidently lower costs with patent-pending cost-aware and importance-aware technology.

Access data and communication across LPARs

Subsystem Optimization

Subsystem Optimizer for zEnterprise® significantly reduces MLC costs while safely improving subsystem communication and failover capability to maximize availability.

  • Move or isolate the most expensive MLC subsystems—like Db2, CICS, IMS, and MQ—and run them on separate logical partitions.
  • Change the MLC math to drastically reduce costs using standard IBM APIs.
  • Add an important failover capability that you don’t have today with any other solution to maximize availability.
