Teri Barnard


IBM, International Business Machines Corporation, is a technology, consulting, and services company with headquarters in Armonk, NY. The name IBM was adopted in 1924 by the former Computing Tabulating and Recording Company, based in Endicott, NY. Today IBM is one of the leading technology innovators in the world. With the S/360 architecture launched fifty years ago IBM introduced operating systems such as DOS/360, now called z/VSE. Virtual machines were introduced to the world, and IBM's z/VM product has evolved to become the benchmark to which other virtualization solutions are measured. With the millennium change, IBM added Linux on z Systems to drive additional workloads to the most powerful, most reliable, most scalable platform - known as the mainframe.
