This course is developed for systems programmers working on an implementation of a Parallel Sysplex. It covers the details of z/OS and z/OS-related products and subsystems exploiting the Parallel Sysplex components. It is focused on the resource sharing side.


  • Understand the steps to implement a basic and full Parallel Sysplex

  • Implement a basic sysplex

  • Implement a multisystem base sysplex

  • Implement the connectivity for a Parallel Sysplex

  • Implement the features and functions of a Parallel Sysplex

  • Implement the coupling facility key exploiters

  • Understand the different recovery scenarios


This intermediate course should include system and subsystem programmers and personnel responsible for the implementation of the hardware and software for a Parallel Sysplex.


Experience in the following areas is recommended:

  • Installing and testing z/OS and related products

  • HCD coding

  • PARMLIB settings
