As new processors were developed with new capabilities, the Multiple Virtual Storage (MVS) operating system was modified and enhanced to utilize the latest advances. The most recently available processors are structured on Enterprise Systems Architecture, and MVS has evolved to be a part of this architecture as MVS/ESA™. This paper describes the changes that occurred in MVS and the facilities that are currently available to support users of the latest processors.
