This session is all about mainframe connectivity - for Coupling, Security, SANs and LANs. Come hear about the newest mainframe - System z9 109. We'll cover the I/O availability enhancements and the changes in support of the I/O cage. We'll discuss what uses I/O resources and the latest enhancements to the host bus infrastructure - the STI (the path for data between memory and I/O) as well as the new MBA fanout card. We'll decipher the alphabet soup! We're 40 years old and counting, and continue to be the right place for mission-critical applications for On Demand Business. We'll cover the coupling options - ICs, ICBs, ISC-3, the Crypto options - CPACF enhancements, the configurable Crypto Express2 feature, what's new with FICON for SANs, and what is new with OSA for LANs. This session is a "snapshot" of all of the technologies that use I/O resources. I'll have my "magic bag".
