DescriptionWhat we offer

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.

ObjectivesWhat you learn

  • 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

  • Welcome
  • 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
  • Topic 7 - More z/OS sysplex exploiter examples

PrerequisitesWhat should you know

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

AudienceWho should attend
