Managing Mission-Critical Workload on Linux on System z

Managing Mission-Critical Workload on Linux on System z

Attend this free technology update to learn through case studies how IBM and its Business Partners are implementing virtualized enterprises using Linux on System z

It’s a mix of competitive pressure and great expectations that drive IT organizations to change and become more dynamic: Increasing cost constraints, compliance and other risks, security threats, higher expectations of IT service, and the promise of emerging technologies. Today, virtualization is at the heart of this, impacting every component of the IT infrastructure, and changing the way people and organizations work. In spite of its advantages, virtualization presents unique challenges. Do you have a management strategy for virtualization on both mainframe and distributed systems? How do you report on service levels and resources, and how does this differ between real and virtual resources? Are operational costs properly tracked?

Enter Linux® on IBM System z®. It can help transform your IT infrastructure into a dynamic infrastructure that is consolidated, cost-efficient and optimized. Running Linux workload on System z can provide improvements to qualities of service, system management and performance, and when integrated with existing data and applications on z/OS®, z/VSE™ or z/VM®, it can naturally complement these environments. When used with IBM Tivoli® Service Management Center for System z solutions, you can realize the economies of scale and still simplify system management, performance and availability.

Join us for a complimentary seminar Managing Mission-Critical Workload on Linux on System z and learn how IBM and its business partners have used best practices and IBM Tivoli management solutions to successfully implement mainframe virtualization at customer sites. If you are an IT manager, IT architect, operations staff and operations managers, Linux and UNIX® administrators (distributed), these sessions will provide valuable information that can help you improve the economic performance of your existing assets.

You'll come away with a good understanding of how to:
