Discontinued fifth generation of the System/360 instruction set architecture.
The low end models were substantially less expensive than the 3090s previously needed to run MVS/ESA, and could also run VM/ESA and VSE/ESA, which IBM announced at the same time.
Model range of IBM mainframe computers announced on June 30, 1970 as the successors to the System/360 family.
four new operating systems: DOS/VS (DOS with virtual storage), OS/VS1 (OS/360 MFT with virtual storage), OS/VS2 (OS/360 MVT with virtual storage) Release 1, termed SVS (Single Virtual Storage), and Release 2, termed MVS (Multiple Virtual Storage) and planned to be available 20 months later (at the end of March 1974), and VM/370 – the re-implemented CP/CMS
The most commonly used operating system on the System/370 and System/390 IBM mainframe computers.
It is unrelated to IBM's other mainframe operating system lines, e.g., VSE, VM, TPF.
Programming language that can be interpreted or compiled.
Rexx is the primary scripting language in some operating systems, e.g. OS/2, MVS, VM, AmigaOS, and is also used as an internal macro language in some other software, such as SPF/PC, KEDIT, THE and the ZOC terminal emulator.
z/VM is the current version in IBM's VM family of virtual machine operating systems.
Series of proprietary Unix operating systems developed and sold by IBM for several of its computer platforms.
By 1976, the operating system was in use at various academic institutions, including Princeton, where Tom Lyon and others ported it to the S/370, to run as a guest OS under VM/370.
Computer software, firmware or hardware that allows partitioning the resource of a CPU among multiple operating systems or independent programs.
The 1972 announcement also included VM/370, a reimplementation of CP/CMS for the S/370.
IBM mainframes are large computer systems produced by IBM since 1952.
The virtual memory capabilities also allowed the system to support virtual machines; the VM/370 hypervisor would run one or more virtual machines running either standard System/360 or System/370 operating systems or the single-user Conversational Monitor System (CMS).
Virtualization/emulation of a computer system.
This approach was pioneered in 1966 with the IBM CP-40 and CP-67, predecessors of the VM family.
Family of data management products, including database servers, developed by IBM.
IBM's first commercial relational-database product, SQL/DS, was released for the DOS/VSE and VM/CMS operating systems in 1981.
