Overview

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.

Audience

This basic course is for z/OS system programmers, IT architects, managers, and anyone interested in understanding more about Parallel Sysplex.

Skills Gained

  • 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

Prerequisites

You should have a general knowledge of System z and z/OS.

Thinking about Onsite?

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.

Submit an enquiry from any page on this site, and let us know you are interested in the requirements box, or simply mention it when we contact you.
