zVPS Version 5 now provides z/OS

Performance Management and more….

After 30 years of firsts and bests, Velocity Software is

looking at where else the mainframe as we know it can

be improved. Applications such as MONGODB,

SpectrumScale/GPFS, DOCKER now have support.

ILMT support allows easier understanding and

control over your software costs. The z/OS platform

has some complexities that could be easily (for us)

improved. With no java, no need for ziips, efficient

code, and the ability to utilize all the z/VM tools,

zVPS will now absorb SMF records and start

providing z/OS performance management functions

on the same pane of glass as your z/VM, network,

VSE, Linux and distributed platforms.

Using Your Performance Monitor

to Watch z/VM and Linux on IBM Z

Sometimes bad things happen to good systems. Your

environments run all day, every day, and trouble can

creep up if they are not monitored. Systems

Programmers and Linux Admins have a lot to do

without watching system monitor screens all day. See

how to proactively monitor your z/VM and Linux on

Z environments with tools available in zVPS.

MongoDB for Hotel Room

Shopping from Marriott

Shopping traffic against Marriott’s reservation system

has grown by leaps and bounds over the past 3 years

pushing the boundaries of zTPF. Please join Marriott,

IBM and MongoDB to see where the results of a

successful POC took us.

Coming Soon to a z/VM near you

Bill will describe a few of the more significant

enhancements to z/VM that are in the pipeline. He’ll

also mention some of the other less significant but still

interesting items under consideration or construction.



Parking is available in CA parking lot. Please go to the

main entrance of the building.
