Live Virtual Classes
Recordings of past virtual classes can be found under the various tabs.
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
For automatic notification of changes to this page, including
additions to the schedule, click on the "Notify me" link
in the navigation section on the left.
To be reminded of these virtual classes via email,
please mention "Linux, KVM and z/VM Webcasts" in the subject
line of your email to Stephanie.
Upcoming Live Virtual Classes (LVC)
Date: Wednesday, April 26, 2017
OpenStack for KVM with Ubuntu on IBM z System
Speaker: Markus Zoeller, OpenStack Development, IBM Germany
This session is divided into three parts, each with an equal time share
of 15-20 minutes. We will start with a recap what Infrastructure as a
Service (IaaS) is all about to resolve some minor potential
misconceptions. After that, an overview of the most important
capabilities of OpenStack are shown. The most common (at least in the
past) pain points and mitigations are discussed too. Eventually, after
having enough context, we take a look at Ubuntu and OpenStack on z. This
includes deployment, operations and supported features. This session will
bring you benefit if you're new(-ish) to OpenStack, evaluating IaaS
solutions, and care about the user/operators-view.
