    The IBM® System z10™ servers provide a base for major server consolidation by further removing memory, processor, and channel constraints. Capacity on Demand offerings provide the flexibility to absorb temporary or permanent growth, maintenance, and disaster recovery situations in an enterprise.

    The Capacity on Demand solutions offer permanent or temporary increases in processor capacity and memory. This IBM Redbooks® publication discusses the following topics:

    * Understanding the common design of the various offerings

    * Hardware and software areas relevant to technical planning

    * Managing concurrent use of multiple Capacity on Demand offerings

    * User-controlled and autonomic management of z/OS® images using z/OS Capacity Provisioning

    This book is intended for systems engineers, infrastructure architects, and anyone wanting to understand Capacity on Demand functions. Readers are expected to be generally familiar with existing System z® technology and terminology.
