I've not heard any of my clients started using zOS 2.1 yet but it's been available since September 30, 2013. Possibly someone around here might just have a different experience.


Thanks,
Anuj

I have not heard of it too...
But probably if you are keen to know about your client / company you could contact the SME / MF capability group there..

With the expanded time between releases (IBM used to release new operating system versions every six months, with 2.1 the interval is 24 months), many organizations probably will be installing it at some point this year but since there is usually plenty of testing before installing an OS upgrade, I wouldn't expect any organizations to have it in production yet. Testing is likely -- probably plenty of them are installing / testing it but not moving it to production yet.
