CNN: "Mainframes making a comeback"

The Associate Press' mainframe story gained broad coverage this week from the likes of CNN, USA Today, BusinessWeek.  Highlights:

  • IBM's mainframe revenue is up 10 percent this year. That includes a 25 percent gain in the most recent quarter.
  • Mainframes can do so many tasks at once that they are more energy efficient and take up less space than a comparable cluster of smaller servers.
  • Charles King, an analyst with Pund-IT: "For a platform that a lot of folks have claimed is essentially moribund or headed into a very dark, bad future, it's got remarkable legs."
