IBM Power HA for i, Clustering, and IASP Implementation


Course Description


Overview

The purpose of the class is to teach students how to create and use IASPs in a variety of application environments. Also, once the IASPs have been created and used in a stand-alone environment, the student will learn how to use IBM i clusters, geographic mirroring, and Copy Services to make the IASP highly available.  

Audience

This is an intermediate technical course for systems programmers and administrators who are considering high availability options for their IBM i environment.

Prerequisites

You should have an understanding of the IBM i concepts in areas such as system security, application implementation, system operations, work management, and communication.
