IBM zEnterprise Technical Introduction
Project and Program: MVS
, MVS Core Technologies
, SHARE in Anaheim 2011
Come to this session for an introductory technical overview of the IBM zEnterprise System "System of Systems" including: the zEnterprise 196 (z196), the System z server component; the zEnterprise BladeCenter Extension (zBX), which brings optimizers and general purpose Power Architecture and XArchitecture blades into the System z family; and the Unified Resource Manager (zManager) which provides platform, hardware and workload management that extends System z governance and qualities of service over multiple architecture workloads.
The hardware overview of the z196 and zBX will include processor technology and organization and I/O connectivity, including zEnterprise intraensemble data network and intranode management network.
The session is designed to provide an basic technical foundation for the more in-depth zEnterprise System technical topics to be presented at SHARE in later sessions. It assumes a general background in previous System z servers, z/Architecture, and System z operating systems. This session is new for SHARE in Anaheim.
