DescriptionWhat we offer

This course is developed for systems programmers working on an implementation of a Parallel Sysplex. It covers the details of z/OS and z/OS-related products and subsystems exploiting the Parallel Sysplex components. It is focused on the resource sharing side.

ObjectivesWhat you learn

  • Understand the steps to implement a basic and full Parallel Sysplex
  • Implement a basic sysplex
  • Implement a multisystem base sysplex
  • Implement the connectivity for a Parallel Sysplex
  • Implement the features and functions of a Parallel Sysplex
  • Implement the coupling facility key exploiters
  • Understand the different recovery scenarios
