WEBINAR Breaking the Speed Limit: Automation is the Engine Deliver faster throughput in a world of plateauing CPU speeds! WHEN Thursday, November 20 9 PT / 1 CT / Noon ET 1 AGENDA We take it for granted that technology will continue to get faster but current CMOS-based processors are reaching their design limits. Consequently, data centers must look to more automation to improve throughput and optimize system resources. Add the financial pressures that have led to widespread use of resource capping, and data center staff are overwhelmed adjusting to machine speeds. They simply cannot keep up with the rapidly changing environment of systems under constraints. Who's capping demand on low priority jobs and driving down the peak R4HA? ThruPut Manager AE delivers unprecedented levels of automation to the enterprise; ensuring critical workloads complete on time even under highly constrained conditions, all the while reducing MSU consumption and MLC costs. You can't afford to miss this Webinar. FEATURED SPEAKER John Baker z/OS Performance Specialist, ThruPut Manager Evangelist MVS Solutions Inc. REGISTER TODAY
