S/390 Partners in Development: EFS Systems on a Linux Base S/390 Partners in Development:  EFS Systems on a Linux Base

A ThinkPad Enabled for S/390 (ThinkPad/EFS) or a Netfinity Enabled for S/390 (Netfinity/EFS) are the smallest S/390-compatible systems currently available that have been tested and approved by IBM. They are based on an IBM ThinkPad or Netfinity running Linux and the S/390 emulation product FLEX-ES. FLEX-ES is a product of Fundamental Software, Incorporated (FSI) of Fremont, California. The resulting system can run current S/390 operating systems, such as z/OS.

Small systems such as these are attractive for education, development, and less demanding production operations.

This IBM Redbook describes the installation and use of these systems, based on usage of a particular z/OS package. This package is available only to members of the IBM S/390 Partners in Development (PID) organization who obtained systems through this organization. Consequently, this document is intended primarily for this group.

The information about Netfinity/EFS systems under Linux should be regarded as preliminary planning information. General support for Netfinity/EFS under Linux was not yet available at the time of writing.
