    I really like the name of that sucker "T-Rex" that's a good comeback to Sun's comments about the mainframes.

    But customers who only occasionally need such capabilities won't have to buy their machine. IBM also is deploying z990s at its data centres as part of the company's "on-demand" computing strategy.
    Does this mean that you may rent them for a period of time? And they didnt mention the on-demand price, then again i reckon those who are looking at mainframes, are bigger companies who can drop the 1 million.

    Interesting article.
