A feat of engineering -- earthquake computing at scale

Mind the Geek

How is it possible build a system that can withstand an 8.0 magnitude earthquake without an outage? Can a server really only have 3 seconds of downtime in a year? How can there be 15.6 miles of wire in a processor? This session will explore the engineering behind the IBM Z15 that makes each of these possible and the process the developers go through to innovate to meet and exceed changing market demands.
