4:00 Sign up & Greeting

5:00 Session 1: V7R4 Overview -- IBM i


  • Abstract: It has been 3 years since the last major IBM i OS release, so V7R4 contains a lot of new function. This presentation will review many of the new enhancements in this release including updates to Database, Security, ACS and Save/Restore.


6:00 Intermission (Buffet Dinner & Networking)

7:00 Session 2: DB2 Mirror for i

  • Abstract: : Perhaps the most significant new function included in V7R4 is 'DB2 Mirror for i'. With this feature, the database is mirrored between two servers in the datacentre, providing a near zero recovery time. The two servers can be in an active/active or active/passive relationship. In this session we will review the requirements for DB2 Mirror, describe how it works, its impact to applications and look at the supported configurations..
