|10:50 AM||Michael Daubman - IBM INTRODUCTION TO VIRTUALIZATION MANAGEMENT with IBM Wave for z/VM:
Well discuss and demonstrate how IBM Wave for z/VM provides an intuitive graphical user interface to provide a single point of control for management, monitoring, and provisioning of z/VM and Linux on System z virtualized resources. IBM Wave enables the graphical visualization of servers, storage, and network; the understanding of system resources status with Intelligent icons; and the provisioning, cloning, and activation of virtual resources, as well as live guest relocation, all accomplished in just a few clicks. We'll will also discuss how leveraging IBM Wave can translate into fewer administration problems, increased efficiency and a very real an immediate ROI.

|1:00 PM||Kevin Adams IBM z/VM HiperDispatch functionality with 6.3.0
One of the major changes in z/VM 6.3 is the new HiperDispatch facility. z/VM HiperDispatch can help increase processor efficiency through improved dispatching affinity and dynamic usage of Vertical CPU Management. This session will take a closer look at the implementation of HiperDispatch, the available tuning options, and new performance metrics. It will help you understand which workloads may benefit the most from this enhancement.
|2:00 PM||Phil Tully - ADP - How a large customer migrated 3000+ operating systems without slowing the bus.|

|3:15 PM||Mike MacIsaac - IDP- Non-disruptively Migrating Linux Guests in Their Entirety
z/VM Single System Image (SSI) and Live Guest Relocation (LGR) allow you to migrate Linux systems, but this moves the running systems memory and CPU to different LPARs. What about the disk? This presentation will describe a solution that also allows you to migrate Linux systems DASD volumes to different disk hardware. It will start at a high level, then drill down into specific examples. It will also describe real-world customer scenarios utilizing this solution.
|4:15 PM||Closing / Questions / Comments and anything else we think of ?!.|
