IBM Power HA for i, Clustering, and IASP Implementation

4 Days

Description

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.

Objectives:

  • Name the types of objects that can be placed in an IASP
  • Describe the methods used to access information in an IASP
  • Create an IASP
  • Use an IASP to support a variety of application functions
  • Manage a system with IASPs
  • Describe the different availability options using clusters and IASPs
  • Create a cluster
  • Make an IASP highly available with geographic mirroring
  • Practice switchover and failover operations
  • Explain the management considerations for systems in a cluster
  • Describe the use of Advanced Copy Services service offering with PowerHA
