IBM Mainframe

Today mainframes comprise the backbone of any major business enterprise. It is assumed as a natural corollary that any setup that has any large scale data processing needs will require the services of a mainframe server. The main selling points of mainframe technology are the unparalleled levels of integrity and security that they offer to their customers.
