Next generation internet centric applications are the target for IBM with a new mainframe that can only run newer software like that from Siebel or SAP. IBM hopes that he new system, the second with IBM's new 64-bit mainframe CPU, will attract customers with its lower price and forward-looking software capability.

Running Linux and other newer software has helped recharge IBM's mainframe business. The company last year had over 75 brand-new, non-mainframe customers who came to the platform via Linux.
