Come to this session for a detailed technical overview of the IBM zEnterprise 196 (z196), the System z server component of the IBM zEnterprise "System of Systems" just announced on July 22. The material presented will include considerable technical detail on z196 design and function: processor design including enhanced cache design and out of order instruction execution; memory design including redundant array of independent memory (RAIM) technology and memory offerings; and I/O subsystem structure including OSA-Express3 connectivity to the zEnterprise BladeCenter Extension (zBX). The session also provides an introduction and roadmap to other zEnterprise System technical topics to be presented in other SHARE sessions including aspects of the zEnterprise Unified Resource Manager (zManager) and the zBX. This session is hot of the press and all new for SHARE in Boston. It assumes a general background in previous System z servers, z/Architecture, and System z operating systems.
