This IBM® Redbooks® publication provides both introductory information and technical details about the IBM System z® Personal Development Tool (IBM zPDT®), which produces a small System z environment suitable for application development. zPDT is a PC Linux application. When zPDT is installed (on Linux), normal System z operating systems (such as IBM z/OS®) can be run on it. zPDT provides the basic System z architecture and emulated IBM 3390 disk drives, 3270 interfaces, OSA interfaces, and so on. The systems that are discussed in this document are complex. They have elements of Linux (for the underlying PC machine), IBM z/Architecture® (for the core zPDT elements), System z I/O functions (for emulated I/O devices), z/OS (the most common System z operating system), and various applications and subsystems under z/OS. The reader is assumed to be familiar with general concepts and terminology of System z hardware and software elements, and with basic PC Linux characteristics. This book provides the primary documentation for zPDT.
This IBM® RedpaperTM publication provides key information about continuous delivery in IBM Db2® 12 for z/OS®. It discusses how continuous delivery works and the changes that have been made in Db2 12 to support continuous delivery, such as adding a new catalog table and changing existing catalog tables. Also the paper covers the effects on applications and how to take advantage of new function provided using the continuous delivery model.
This IBM Redbooks® Product Guide gives an overview of the features and functions that are available with the IBM DS8880 models running microcode Release 8.3 (License Machine Code 7.8.3x.xxx). The IBM DS8880 architecture relies on powerful IBM POWER8® processor-based servers that manage the cache to streamline disk input/output (I/O), maximizing performance and throughput. These capabilities are further enhanced with the availability of the second generation of high-performance flash enclosures (HPFE Gen-2). The IBM DS8888, DS8886, and DS8884 models excel at supporting the IBM Z Enterprise server and IBM Power server environments, offering many synergy features.
This IBM® Redbooks® publication provides information about the IBM System z® HiperSocketsTM function. It offers a broad description of the architecture, functions, and operating systems support. This publication will help you plan and implement HiperSockets. It provides information about the definitions needed to configure HiperSockets for the supported operating systems. This book is intended for system programmers, network planners, and systems engineers who want to plan and install HiperSockets. A solid background in network and Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) is assumed.
SAP HANA on IBM® POWER® is an established HANA solution with which customers can run HANA-based analytic and business applications on a flexible IBM Power based infrastructure. IT assets, such as servers, storage, and skills and operation procedures, can easily be used and reused instead of enforcing more investment into dedicated SAP HANA only appliances. In this scenario, IBM SpectrumTM Scale as the underlying block storage and files system adds further benefits to this solution stack to take advantage of scale effects, higher availability, simplification, and performance. With the IBM Elastic StorageTM Server (ESS) based on IBM Spectrum ScaleTM, RAID capabilities are added to the file s...
This IBM® Redbooks® product guide describes the IBM Storage Networking SAN64B-6 switch. cloud infrastructures and growing flash-based storage environments by delivering market-leading Gen 6 Fibre Channel technology and capabilities. SAN64B-6 delivers unmatched 32/128 gigabits per second (Gbps) performance, industry-leading port density, and built-in instrumentation to accelerates data access, drive always-on business, and support data center consolidation in small to large-scale enterprise infrastructures.
This IBM® Redbooks product guide describes Fabric Vision technology. The use of virtualization, flash storage, and automation tools has allowed applications and services to be deployed faster while shattering performance barriers. The unprecedented number of application and service interactions has also increased the complexity, risk, and instability of mission-critical operations. As a result, IT organizations need flexible storage networks that can adapt to dynamic environments and performance requirements for high-density virtualization, flash storage, and cloud infrastructures. To achieve Service Level Agreement (SLA) objectives, IT administrators also need new tools that can help ensure non-stop operations, quickly identify potential points of congestion, and maximize application performance, while simplifying administration. Fabric Vision technology with IO Insight, an extension of Gen 6 Fibre Channel, provides outstanding insight and visibility across the storage network with powerful, integrated monitoring, management, and diagnostic tools that help organizations to simplify monitoring, increase operational stability, and dramatically reduce costs.
This IBM RedpaperTM publication focuses on the integration between IBM® SPSS® Modeler and R. The paper is aimed at people who know IBM SPSS Modeler and have only a very limited knowledge of R. Chapters 2, 3, and 4 provide you with a high level understanding of R integration within SPSS Modeler enabling you to create or recreate some very basic R models within SPSS Modeler, even if you have only a basic knowledge of R. Chapter 5 provides more detailed tips and tricks. This chapter is for the experienced user and consists of items that might help you get up to speed with more detailed functions of the integration and understand some pitfalls.
