As installations implement Linux on system z, either with small virtualization projects or with Cloud implementations, there is an increasing need for a web based system administration. There is also a need to modernize the platform. z/VM is a very solid sophisticated virtualization engine, but the user interface is antiquated.
Velocity Software provides zPRO(tm) to modernize the z/VM user interface with a browser based interface for managing the system. zPRO is a feature of zVPS, the Velocity Software Performance Suite, utilizing the web serving functionality provided for z/VM.
As a "native" z/VM based application, all functions are performed using native z/VM facilities, and are not restricted to what z/VM provides for APIs. This architecture provides several advantages including ease of use and the ability to leverage additional z/VM facilites.
Features provided by zPRO are:
zPRO is the prime component of Velocity Software's cloud strategy. The cost of zPRO is insignificant.
zPRO is priced to support even the smallest of z/VM installations.
