Upcoming z/VM KVM for z Systems Linux on z Systems z/VSE

General Information
IBM offers education on a variety of z/VM, Linux on z Systems, KVM for z Systems and z/VSE topics in the form of "Live Virtual Classes" (LVC). The day of the LVC broadcast, you can see the charts and listen to the speaker "live". In addition, you are able (and are encouraged) to ask questions of the speaker during a Q&A session following the prepared presentation. Please register for the section you wish to attend. Each LVC lasts approximately one hour, including Q&A.

The day following each LVC, we plan to post the the charts here in PDF format. Shortly thereafter we plan to provide a replay where you can read the charts, hear the recording and the Q&As. You are welcome to read the charts or listen to the playbacks when you can't participate 'live' or even if you wish to hear it all again.

Speaker: Emily Kate Hugenbruch, OpenStack Cloud Enablement Engineer, z/VM Software Engineer, IBM US
Abstract: You've probably heard of OpenStack, the open source cloud initiative backed by IBM and many other companies. But what does "cloud" really mean? Does it even apply to mainframes? In this session we'll look at what OpenStack is and how z/VM OpenStack enablement support works. We'll talk about our OpenStack Liberty enablement architecture and what it takes to install and configure it. Then we'll talk about special features for OpenStack on z/VM and what you can do to bring your existing workload into OpenStack.
