Implementing the IBM System Storage SAN Volume Controller with IBM Spectrum Virtualize V8.1
Software Defined Storage

Redbooks, published 27 Feb 2018, last updated 28 Feb 2018

This IBM® Redbooks publication is a detailed technical guide to the IBM System Storage® SAN Volume Controller, which is powered by IBM Spectrum™ Virtualize V8.1.

IBM CICS and the Coupling Facility: Beyond the Basics
Application Platform

Redbooks, published 21 Feb 2018

It's easy to look at the title of a book and think "that's old news" or "I already know all there is to know on that subject." But before you dismiss this publication, consider just how far the IBM® Parallel Sysplex® architecture has come. From the early days the mainframe has embraced a shared everything approach. The original designers coded IBM z/OS® (called IBM MVS™ or IBM OS/390® back then) with the functionality necessary for the operating system to create the repositories, manage the data flow, and ensure the integrity of the systems involved. From there, the middleware systems ... [more]
