Parallel Sysplex Implementation Workshop - ES42G

Parallel Sysplex Implementation Workshop - ES42G


The audience should include system and subsystem programmers and personnel responsible for the implementation of the hardware and software for a Parallel Sysplex.


Experience in the following areas is recommended:

  • Installing and testing z/OS and related products
  • HCD coding
  • PARMLIB settings


5 days. Hands on.

Course Objectives

This course is developed for systems programmers working on an implementation of a Parallel Sysplex. It covers the details of z/OS and z/OS-related products and subsystems exploiting the Parallel Sysplex components. It is focused on the resource sharing side.

  • Understand the steps to implement a basic and full Parallel Sysplex
  • Implement a basic sysplex
  • Implement a multisystem base sysplex
  • Implement the connectivity for a Parallel Sysplex
  • Implement the features and functions of a Parallel Sysplex
  • Implement the coupling facility key exploiters
  • Understand the different recovery scenarios
