This is a very, very complex issue.  I would suggest that you get a company that is familure with the platforms you are looking at.

When looking at mainframes, you have to choose which ones and what OS to run.  There are many, many factors to take into account and artical on the web are not going to help you.  You really need people that know all of the various platforms and what you are attempting to do.  

It was not really the way you asked the question, but the fact that you had so many "mainframe" related questions all at once.
