This IBM® Redpaper™ publication provides a list of features and functions that are supported on IBM Z, including:

  • IBM z16™ - Machine type 3931;
  • IBM z15™ - Machine types 8561 and 8562;
  • IBM z14™ - Machine types 3906 and 3907.

On 30 June 2021, the IBM z14 (M/T 3906) was withdrawn from marketing (WDMF).

Field-installed features and all associated conversions that are delivered solely through a modification to the machine’s Licensed Internal Code (LIC) are still possible until 29 June 2022.

This IBM Redpaper publication can help you quickly understand the features, functions, and connectivity alternatives that are available when planning and designing IBM Z infrastructures.
