Come explore the technical aspects of z/OS Container Extensions in this free briefing and demonstration to see how to put this important new technology to productive, innovative use quickly in your z/OS environments.
Version 2.4 of IBM's z/OS operating system introduced exciting new support for running Docker containers via the z/OS Container Extensions (zCX), a fully IBM supported, no additional charge feature in the base z/OS operating system that runs on suitably configured IBM z14 (or higher) machines. zCX greatly expands z/OS's flexibility to run more cloud native applications, including most open source software, with the leading availability, security, and manageability characteristics that make z/OS justifiably famous.
All those interested in exploring the recommended uses and technical implementation aspects of zCX are welcome, including those currently working with or considering Docker/Open Container Initiative technologies. Some basic familiarity with z/OS is helpful although not strictly essential. There is no charge to attend, and this informative session will be conducted in English.
Edward McCarthy, the co-author of IBM's technical guide ("redbook") on the z/OS Container Extensions, leads this session. Timothy Sipples, the Asia-Pacific Industry Solutions Architect Executive for IBM Z and LinuxONE, joins as co-presenter.
