The IBM zEnterprise System is comprised of a central processing complex (CPC), either an IBM zEnterprise 196 (z196) or IBM zEnterprise 114 (z114), the IBM zEnterprise Unified Resource Manager, the IBM zEnterprise BladeCenter Extension (zBX) with its integrated optimizers or select IBM blades. Preparing z/OS systems to support the new IBM zEnterprise System is easy. All supported releases can run on the new server; and enhancements in SMP/E V3.5 (included in SMP/E 3.6) integrate the identification, verification, acquisition, and installation of required PTFs into standard SMP/E processing.
In this session, the speaker will cover z/OS software and configuration changes required to support the latest IBM zEnterprise System with either the IBM z196 or z114 CPC. He will describe the different functionality supported on each z/OS release, as well as any migration or exploitation actions required to use new functions on the IBM zEnterprise System (including the recently announced enhancements). Systems programmers and their managers who will upgrade to the latest server will find lots of useful information in this session.
