SPEAKERS: Roger Miller (IBM Silicon Valley Lab)

The IBM System z9 and z10 Integrated Information Processor (zIIP) is the latest specialty engine. The zIIP improves resource optimization and lower the cost of portions of eligible workloads, enhancing the role of the System z as the data hub of the enterprise. The zIIP's execution environment will accept eligible work from z/OS, which will manage and direct the work between the general purpose processor and the zIIP. DB2 for z/OS V8 and DB2 9 for z/OS will exploit the zIIP capability for portions of eligible workloads. The zIIP is available on the System z9 and z10, and this engine improves value while reducing costs.
