MongoDB announced plans to offer support for MongoDB’s products on IBM z Systems mainframe. The announcement comes as IBM launches LinuxONE, a new portfolio of hardware, software and services solutions based on the z Systems mainframe that’s designed for enterprise-grade Linux applications.
“We are constantly looking for best-of-class open source technologies to deploy on IBM z Systems,” said Ross Mauri, general manager, IBM z Systems. “Now, organizations can combine the innovative features of MongoDB with the unmatched performance of the z Systems mainframe to create solutions with new levels of speed, scale and flexibility.”
“For years, the world’s largest companies have run critical applications on IBM mainframes,” said Dev Ittycheria, president and CEO of MongoDB. “Our move to support IBM z Systems is a testament to our commitment to our users and customers to make MongoDB available on all major platforms. With this announcement, organizations can now build and run modern, mission-critical applications on proven mainframe technologies.”
MongoDB is working closely with IBM to engineer MongoDB Enterprise Server to be optimized for Linux on z Systems and the new LinuxONE Systems. As part of the agreement, MongoDB’s global support and engineering organization will continue to collaborate with IBM to ensure business continuity for our joint customers running MongoDB on IBM z Systems.
