I'm very interested in any input about running memory intensive
applications like IBM Websphere under z/Linux. What kind of workloads
/ servers do you think
works best under z/VM and also realizes most economical benefits?

For instance if I wanted to run 10 lightly loaded zLinux instances
with WAS  on z/VM, how much memory is required for each instance? How
will that compare to 10 instances on vmware with similar workloads if
we only care about money?
