Five Great Use Cases to Gain the Benefit of zIIPs

The IIP in zIIP stands for Integrated Information Processor, but that doesn’t really define what the zIIP is or how it can best be used. When you use zIIPs, some percentage of your mainframe workload can be redirected off the general processors onto the zIIP specialty processor. The primary reason for doing this is that software charges are not
