Specialty processors are an IBM enhancement introduced to mainframes in the early 2000s. These processors augment a mainframe’s general processor, allowing organizations to shift specific workloads off the GPU. 

Why do this? While there are many reasons, one rises above all others— cost savings.

In this ebook, noted mainframe authority Craig Mullins reveals what you need to know to leverage the zIIP IBM Specialty Processor for mainframe cost savings.
