GS04 – Monitoring IBM Z with zVPS

GS04 – Monitoring IBM Z with zVPS
With the large number of diverse workloads that run on Z, a monitor needs to do much more than the various operating systems. An enterprise is not only made up of z/VM or z/VSE and CICS. It is possible that a large mix of operating systems and applications are being used, z/VM, z/VSE, z/OS. In addition to CICS, MongoDB, Java, Oracle, DB2. Velocity Software has a single solution that can monitor it all, in one place, with one web based interface.

GS09 – Container everywhere - in Linux and zCX, in IBM Z and LinuxONE
From digitalization and containerization to a highly effective environment it's a short path. Let's talk about what and how you can build to exploit container workloads in your existing environment or in your future solutions, with the specifics of the different workloads and requirements these workloads might have. Fully integrated or highly confidential or conditional deployments, it's all about your needs, the technologies are available and we will talk about them.

GS14 – Networking with Linux on IBM Z

GS14 – Networking with Linux on IBM Z
This session will cover two topics: SMC-Dv2 and RoCE Express cards with Linux on Z and LinuxONE. SMC-Dv2 can transparently boost your TCP networking performance a great deal while saving CPU at the same time! We will provide a to-the-point introduction on what SMC-Dv2 offers, how to deploy, and operate. RoCE Express adapters with their low latency can provide lots of value as general purpose IP NICs outside of their intended use with SMC-R. We will provide an overview on how to use RoCE Express adapters with Linux on IBM Z and Linux ONE as their sole networking interface.
