Webinar: Linux Workload Performance on z15 and LinuxONE III

Join us for our webinar on June 17, 2020 at 11:00 AM - 12:15 PM EDT / 5:00-6:15 PM CET!

Abstract
The latest generation of IBM LinuxONE III (IBM z15) introduces more compute resources, more memory, new I/O cards, new hardware accelerators and more as compared to its predecessor (IBM z14). The focus of this talk is the performance investigation of real-world, end-to-end Linux workloads on IBM LinuxONE III profiting from these new features. The attendees will understand the business-needs, optimal deployment/configuration and competitive performance impact of these features while executing enterprise-level workloads (like databases, webservers, virtual machines, impact of encryption and others), and compare the performance of z15 to x86 servers.

Webinar: Where to place your workload in a Linux on IBM Z & LinuxONE environment

Join us for a webinar on May 26, 2020 at 11:00 AM - 12:15 PM EDT / 5:00-6:15 PM CET!

Abstract
The session will outline the capabilities and possibilities of virtualized workloads and container workloads. It will then show the rationale that can lead to the decision where to place those workloads, centric on network, resiliency or transactional requirements. They can run in heterogeneous co-located environments on IBM Z and as hybrid workloads on IBM Z with Hybrid Cloud services.
