|9:15 AM||Greg Lacey IBM Marist/IBM Joint Study Program
Marist Grads and Undergrads Working with IBM Wave for z/VM In addition to an overview of IBM Wave (described below), we will also speak about the Marist students actively working on and contributing to the IBM Wave project as interns and fulltime employees. We will also highlight the use of IBM Wave in Marist Colleges' Enterprise Computing Research Laboratory, where student researchers rely on Wave to perform day to day z/VM guest management operations and tasks, without having the experience and expertise of a traditional z/VM Systems Programmer
|10:30 AM||- Choice of - Tour of Marist data center (in the same library building) - or - Coffee break|
|10:50 AM||Mike MacIsaac - IDP- Managing z/VM and Linux without SSH root access
Many organizations do not allow access to Linux as root. The Linux sudo facility and SSH key-based authentication can be used by system administrators who still need root access. As the number of z/VM and Linux systems increases, configuring sudo and SSH results in more work. This presentation will first suggest a model then show a reference implementation of (zoom) for automating SSH key configuration and minimizing the need for sudo. It will also show a model for secure Web access to the same set of tools .

|1:00 PM||Tim Greer IBM Link Aggregation for the z/VM Virtual Switch
This presentation will look at the Link Aggregation feature of the z/VM Virtual Switch with an emphasis on newer aspects, including those exploiting enhancements in the IBM z13. We will discuss the concepts and capabilities of exclusive and shared port groups, then show set up and configuration of example environments. We then examine relevant QUERY commands and the programmatic alternative diagnose x'26C'.
|2:00 PM||Anthony Notaro - Luminex - Mainframe Virtual Tape Solutions for z/VM
Whether you currently use virtual tape, or are considering replacement options for an existing physical tape infrastructure, Luminex provides future-proof solutions for every size tape environment. Attend this session to learn about the deep feature set available to z/VM environments and how those features can improve tape operations, disaster recovery and availability and, in turn, help protect your mainframe investment. Luminex has been a sponsor at SHARE.
|3:00 PM||Coffee Break|
|3:15 PM||Paul Houde - IBM- IBM z Systems Mobile Strategy
As enterprises work to gain control of the challenging mobile environment, Linux on z Systems under z/VM has a key role in hosting mobile applications, both as a System of Record and as a System of Engagement. During this presentation we will discuss Enterprise mobile challenges, IBM MobileFirst, System zs role in Mobile Applications, CICS/IMS/DB2 readiness for mobile, what customers are actually implementing, and the next steps to consider..
