IBM z/OS Container Extensions zCX - ESX0G

Training Summary
z/OS Container Extensions (zCX), a new entitled capability of z/OS 2.4, ushers in a new era of hybrid computing supporting running Linux applications directly on z/OS. IBM® z/OS® Container Extensions (IBM zCX) makes it possible to run Linux on IBM Z® applications that are packaged as Docker container images on z/OS. Application developers can develop and data centers can operate popular open source packages, Linux applications, IBM software, and third-party software together with z/OS applications and data.
General z/OS knowledge, including basic UNIX System Services skills- Basic knowledge of RACF- Basic knowledge of z/OSMF and workflows TBD.
2 Days/Lecture & Lab
This class is intended for z/OS system programmers and IT specialists in charge of configuring, implementing and deploying zCX under z/OS 2.4- This class is also intended for Application developers who will deploy docker containers in a zCX z/OS container extensions instance.
