The Impact of Tailored Fit Pricing (TFP) on zIIPs

Today’s article in my series on zIIP processors will be a little different because I want to focus on a specific IBM mainframe pricing model and how users of that model may benefit from using zIIPs. The pricing model, Tailored Fit Pricing (TFP), is the latest model introduced by IBM. But what is TFP, and how does it differ from the sub-capacity pricing models used by most organizations? The Current State: Sub-Capacity Pricing Models IBM …

From A to zIIP: What you need to know to reduce COBOL Costs with the IBM Specialty Processor Now Available on YouTube

The zIIP, an IBM specialty processor, allows organizations to reduce the workload of their general processors (GPs).  This reduction can lower the MSU metrics used to calculate MLC software charges.  Lower MSU usage can lead to lower MLC charges. Knowing that zIIPs may reduce your cost and achieve the benefit isn’t as complicated as you might think.  Understanding how to leverage the zIIP for cost reduction is a CloudFrame Modernization Best Practice and can be …
