Deploying Virtualized Mainframe Environments
If several virtualized mainframe environments are to be created, multiple methods can be employed to complete the task.
- A complete virtualized mainframe environment can be constructed for new use cases, as needed.
- A base image consisting of a Linux host environment, the DASD files, and device map can be constructed and then cloned to identical hardware. The cloned system can then be updated to fit the needs of each individual use case.
