|10:30 AM||Phill Smith - LinuxCare - Best Practices for
Deploying Linux on VM
While the deployment of Linux on z/VM is gaining momentum in enterprise data centers, unfamiliar or inexperienced Linux system administrators may be unaware of common mistakes or hazards that could potentially jeopardize a successful Linux on z/VM implementation. For example, tricks such as sharing or copying minidisks are tempting when considering how to manage dozens or hundreds of Linux instances, but these shortcuts frequently result in systems that are more difficult to manage. This session is aimed at VM system programmers who are either considering or already deploying multiple instances of Linux on VM and who need a manageable and dependable software stack in their environment.

So you've gotten your Linux on the mainframe
up and running, and perhaps even have some production
Linux guests. But one of them isn't responding,
or at least, someone says it isn't.
What do you do now? How do you approach
figuring out what might be wrong with it?

IBM Services Connection:
Creating Virtual Portals for Delivery of Services
In 2004, customers expect an interactive relationship
with suppliers and partners on the Web.
They are not satisfied with simply being allowed to
view marketing materials or conduct sales transactions.
They want to have a view into various aspects of the
relationship. And they want a simple mechanism for
sharing feedback and confirming that it has been
captured and will be acted upon.
IBM Global Services has developed and deployed
this kind of capability in a branded environment
called the "IBM Services Connection".
