, SHARE in Atlanta 2012
IBM has announced that ESCON channels will not be supported on servers following the z196 and z114 (no RPQs, no exceptions). IBM, Cisco and Optica will show you how to prepare for the elimination of ESCON channels in your mainframe infrastructure, while preserving the high value ESCON (and Bus/Tag) devices that remain in support of your stable, mature applications. Clearly understand the IBM system z roadmap and the most effective way to plan and execute your infrastructure transition.
