Not everyone trains to be a Search and Rescue Swimmer...

...and even fewer make the grade.
Search and Rescue is often done during the worst conditions imaginable. It’s a tough job and one that demands the best people and tools you can find. The same can be said for those managing complex z/VM environments. Migrating Linux servers to z/VM creates many challenges and finding the right tools and training is nearly impossible. It’s why Velocity Software continues to offer both free education and some of the best z/VM tools in the business. In 2010 we trained more than 100 customers, business partners, and IBMers at no charge. We intend to expand our topics and more than double that number during 2011. But training is just one factor when it comes to successfully managing your z/VM complex. To simplify the way you manage z/VM and instantly improve productivity, Velocity is announcing a web based option of zVPS (Velocity’s Performance Suite for System z). zPRO (z/VM Professional) provides an intuitive systems management portal for z/VM and Linux on System z. It can be used to clone servers (Linux and others), manage your Directory, handle document retrieval, manage Spool Files, and administer TCP/IP and RACF definitions as you develop your cloud environment with IBM System z. zPRO can be installed in minutes along with zVPS. Why make the job any tougher than it is already? Take a little of the “chill” out of being a z/VM professional. Contact us for more information about pricing, demos, and trials.

zVPS from Velocity Software. It’s the smart thing to do.
