Virtual Storage—A Long-Lasting Invention

In this post, I will begin an exploration of IT virtualization. Specifically, I am writing about the importance of different aspects of virtualization in today’s computers. Since virtualization is a built-in part of every computer we use, we don’t discuss it that often. Frankly, it is a very important invention that we simply take for granted and perhaps that is how it should be.

Hot Response to the Future of DDS

Wow! Who knew so many people cared about the future of DDS!

Clearly, it is subject that interested people and so we decided to continue the conversation in this week's blog.

DB2 Analytics Accelerator for z/OS Resources

I’ve written extensively about the DB2 Analytics Accelerator. My most recent post, from January, covered IBM's future plans for the product.

Because the accelerator is becoming a critical tool for DB2 professionals, I wanted to share a couple of resources I’ve recently come across. The first is the IBM Support Portal for DB2 Analytics Accelerator for z/OS. It contains dozens of links to IBM documentation about the accelerator (installation, configuration, maintenance, education, etc.) and business analytics in general.

More Terrifying Tales of IT

I enjoy reading IT-related horror stories, especially those that hit close to home. For me, the best thing about these stories is figuring out what went wrong and then incorporating those lessons into my own environments. Here are a couple of good reads that I want to share.
