We have added the following four new members to MainframeZone’s Mainframe Hall of Fame. The complete roster of all 29 members is available here.


Jeff Frey is the lead architect of the zEnterprise system and the Unified Resource Manager that was introduced in July 2010. An IBM Fellow, he was also one of the founding architects of System z Parallel Sysplex.

Patricia Selinger is an IBM Fellow and a leading member of the team that produced the world's first relational database system and created the basic architecture for DB2.

Cheryl Watson has been sharing her extensive knowledge of MVS performance analysis and capacity planning since 1965 as a consultant, teacher, and author of Cheryl Watson's Tuning Letter.

Lynn Wheeler has been a major contributor to z/VM's success since his early days as the author of numerous enhancements to CP and CMS including the renowned "Wheeler Scheduler".

I realize that there are many more people who have had significant roles in the development and success of the IBM mainframe. Who else should be added to MainframeZone’s Mainframe Hall of Fame?
