Virtual Machines

VMs are now part of the vocabulary of many in IT. VMs are ubiquitous from mainframes to desktops and everywhere in between. What are VMs and where did they come from? That is the subject of this post.

COMMON Requirements

I’m sure some of you are aware COMMON has a requirements process, but perhaps many of you don’t know about it. And even if you do know about it, things have changed!

Newish RPG Features

Yesterday’s mail included an update from the RPG Cafe that appeared to be announcing two new features for V7.1 and 7.2 RPG. We attempted to download the PTF only to be told that it was already installed. Strange ... wonder who did that? A DSPPTF revealed the answer. This was not actually a new announcement; rather it was an update to the wiki page.  These updates became available back in October 2014!

The IBM i Future: Hints from DB2

In a previous post about the future of IBM i, I shared some of the primary messages we give to customers who ask us things like, “Show me a roadmap for IBM i for the next five years” and “Is IBM going to support IBM i in the future?” Typically, these questions get asked by CxO types in companies—CTOs, CIOs and CEOs who don’t have much experience with IBM i and its predecessors, or who have been depending on the platform for a long time, but who have had no reason to pay close attention to the blogs, whitepapers and conference sessions we’ve been creating for the customer base. The messages from that post are often enough to calm the anxiety of CxOs, particularly if we get to deliver them in person.

Minimizing the Processing Cost of DB2 Traces

In a recent blog post, Denis Tronin discussed DB2 for z/OS performance monitoring.
 
Denis provides a nice introduction to this topic by examining the different types of trace information. To me, the single most important take-away comes toward the end of the article, when he says: “It is important to understand that traces bring an overhead to your DB2 subsystem, so they should be used wisely.”

Simplifying PowerVM Management

In December I wrote about a document that covers HMC simplification. Actually, the doc isn't just about that. It's also about how IBM is trying to make managing PowerVM easier for customers.
