|8:30am||Managing Multiple Instances of Linux under z/VM
By Phil Smith of Linuxcare
The concept "Linux on the mainframe" provides an excellent business case and is beginning to make headway in
the enterprise, but it is tempered by different administrative challenges. Some of the challenges of running Linux
on z/VM include network configuration, integration with existing process frameworks, managing user accounts
across instances, change management, attempting to minimize DASD usage, and scheduling issues. In addition
to discussing these challenges, this session will reflect on some potential solutions.
|10:00am||z/VM: The Value of zSeries Virtualization Technology for Linux
By Reed Mullen of IBM
This presentation will explain the business value / technological advantages of running Linux systems in virtual
machines using IBM's z/VM product. Much of the "buzz" surrounding Linux on the mainframe comes from
running Linux on VM - you'll learn the details.
|11:15am||Linux for zSeries. The Roadmap to Success
By Robert Kusche of Sytek Services, Inc.
Sytek Services, an IBM and CA Preferred Business Partner, has been involved in many Linux mainframe
implementations and will discuss what you must know to successfully implement Linux. How can you cost justify
Linux? How can you prepare your infrastructure? What provisions should you make for ongoing support? Robert
will answer these and other questions.
To encourage and reward those who fill out the evaluations and attend the entire meeting, we will be having a
drawing at the end of the day for fun prizes! You must be present to win.
