12465: Integrate z/VM into your z/OS and Linux for System z Scheduling Environments

Friday, February 8, 2013: 8:00 AM-9:00 AM
Franciscan D, Ballroom Level (San Francisco Hilton)
Speaker: Michael Sine(IBM Corporation)

Many customers today have integrated Linux for System z into their z/OS scheduling environments.  They successfully manage dependencies across these two platforms as well as other non-mainframe platforms.  z/VM is often omitted in scheduling environments.  By integrating z/VM into your z/OS and Linux for System z scheduling environments improvements in dependency resolution may be realized by interaction with z/VM, tasks specific to z/VM may be included in the scheduling scenarios, and centralizing more management functions (including scheduling) at the z/VM level may reduce resources utilization at the Linux level.  This session will introduce these concepts and discuss the potential improvements and benefits of z/VM's inclusion to the scheduling environment.  The speaker will demonstrate example scenarios using Tivoli Workload Schedule End-to-End (TWS E2E) with IBM's Operations Manager for z/VM.  Attendees will be able to take these examples and implement similar functionality using their choice of z/OS and Linux based schedulers as well as other z/VM Tooling (PROP, or other vendor solutions).

Tracks: IT Services Delivery, Linux Systems Management, Virtualization in the Enterprise, z/OS Systems Programming, z/VM Systems Programming and zNextGen
