This course is designed to provide a fairly detailed overview of the Parallel Sysplex environment. It covers both hardware and software aspects including examples of how certain system components and subsystems exploit sysplex.
This basic course is for z/OS system programmers, IT architects, managers, and anyone interested in understanding more about Parallel Sysplex.
Explain the historical perspective of sysplex
Identify and describe the key components used in a base sysplex configuration
Identify and describe the key components used in a Parallel Sysplex configuration
Describe how the CF is defined and connected
Explain time synchronization in a sysplex
Describe the overall structure definition process, types, operational use, and some key structure characteristics
Identify and list users of sysplex services
Identify and describe various sysplex exploiters and subsystems
You should have a general knowledge of System z and z/OS.
Topic 1 - Systems evolution: Single system to sysplex
Topic 2 - Basic sysplex
Topic 3 - Parallel Sysplex and coupling facility architecture
Topic 4 - Time synchronization
Topic 5 - Coupling facility structures
Topic 6 - Sysplex exploiters and data sharing examples
If you need training for 3 or more people, you should ask us about onsite training. Putting aside the obvious location benefit, content can be customised to better meet your business objectives and more can be covered than in a public classroom. It's a cost effective option.
