    This IBM Redbooks publication describes the implementation of PeopleSoft Version 8.4 on a zSeries Parallel Sysplex data sharing environment. It discusses the benefits of running PeopleSoft in a sysplex with data sharing, and explains the performance considerations and issues when implementing PeopleSoft in a data sharing environment.

    The book also investigates the load balancing of PeopleSoft workloads using DB2 Connect to connect to the sysplex DB2 data sharing members. It describes functional and volume tests of load balancing, and a section about Enterprise Storage Systems describes PeopleSoft performance benefits when using ESS.
