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.

Upcoming Live Virtual Classes (LVC)

Date: Wednesday, June 28, 2017
Topic: z/VM 6.4: Preparation & Use
Speaker: Bill Bitner, IBM, z/VM Customer Focus and Care
Abstract: z/VM 6.4 was generally available on November 11, 2016 and brought a lot of new capability to the z/VM environment. This presentation reviews some of the key changes in the release. First we'll look at your existing system and discuss what will be different when you go to z/VM 6.4. Next we'll look at what you should change prior to IPLing z/VM 6.4, things like expanded storage or changes for HyperPAV paging. We'll wrap things up with a discussion of how you exploit some of the new features after you are running z/VM 6.4.
