z/OS Software Deployment is a new z/OSMF application planned for z/OSMF V1.13, and is intended to make it easier to manage your software images by simplifying and standardizing the cloning and deployment processes. The new capability provides the functions needed to create and deploy a copy, or clone, of an existing SMP/E-installed software image, including IBM software installed using ServerPac, CBPDO, or fee-based installation offerings, as well as ISV or customer SMP/E-installed software. The function is intended to help you create and distribute copies of system software, including target libraries, distribution libraries, SMP/E zones, and related data sets you identify.
In this session the speaker will review many software cloning techniques, identifying industry best practices and showing how the new Software Deployment function can be used to simplify the task.
