z Systems HiperSockets are virtual LANs provided by the z Systems platform without any additional fee. Because they are internal and virtual LANs on the z System there is no exposed cable or wire and therefore provides a secure connection between LPARs in the same z System machine.
This session will detail what z Systems HiperSockets are and how they can be used between LPARs. HiperSockets implementation on z/OS will be explained. Linux on System z implementations are resistant to use dynamic routing. Without dynamic routing HiperSockets and OSA connections between z/OS and Linux on System z will need static routing definitions. HiperSockets routing options between z/OS and Linux on System z will be discussed.-Linda Harrison-IBM Corporation
