IBM zSystems is an overarching title used by IBM for all of its z/Architecture mainframe computers, beginning with the z900 up to the most recent z16, released in May 2022. The "z" stands for "zero downtime," which reflects the reliability of the system. Data that is handled by IBM zSystems is encrypted by dedicated processors over the complete ecosystem, using quantum-safe data encryption. This means that encrypted data can withstand future unauthorized decryption using quantum computing capacity. Similarly, LinuxONE is an enterprise-grade server with a unique architecture designed to meet the needs of mission-critical workloads. It brings together IBM's experience in building sustainable, secure, and scalable systems with the openness of the Linux operating system. LinuxONE runs on IBM zSystems servers.

"Converge looks forward to expanding our IBM zSystems and LinuxONE capabilities into Canada," stated Greg Berard, President and North American CEO of Converge. "Converge has been offering these solutions to our clients across the United States for many years and have strong technical resources with deep expertise and knowledge around these offerings.  We're excited to now be able to bring those skills to our Canadian clients and offer the same level of these IBM services and solutions across North America."
