Is System z an unexploited platform for Cloud solutions..?


Having been in the Mainframe space for many years and having worked on one of the most scalable and secure computing environments, I was thinking - is System z missing the Cloud buzz?
The current platforms from IBM such as zBX and zEnterprise servers are able to support heterogeneous work loads of Mainframe, Unix, Java etc., have a seamless capability to upscale or downscale and are packed with ability to create new images without system down time.
