    This IBM Redbooks publication details our new "8 9s across the enterprise" know-how by explaining resiliency concepts and then demonstrating how to build the LinuxONE Emperor 4 Resiliency Framework for RHOCP. This should include required hardware/software, configuration details for PR/SM and z/VM, explaining how GDPS xDR proxies work for z/VM and guests, how SSI contributes to business continuity, and how to configure a single RHOCP cluster across multiple z/VM systems.
