I set up Debian Linux s390 port to run on Hercules on an i386 computer.
I know that I can now develop apps or run apps that are ported to zLinux/s390 Linux, and perhaps also learn more about the special features of the s390/zseries processors (or at least most of their features). I've also read that there is no reliability/availability/serviceability advantage to running this in emulation since the underlying hardware is not-fault tolerant. Is that even true, given the redundant/fault-tolerant computations performed by the emulated processors?
Does anyone know of other good reasons to run zLinux in emulation?
I am asking because I want to get the most out of the system I set up.
