Storwize advanced topics
For the average IBM i shop storage has been just that storage. The primary differences between Internal disk and SAN disk for years was the complexity of connection and the price of the solution. Until not long ago questions such as What else can it do?  were left unasked because the cost and complexity answers often put SAN storage out of reach.Changes to the cost and complexity equation have placed SANs within reach of most if not all IBM i customers. So if we ™ve got a SAN what can it do besides be storage? Glad you asked!SANs bring to us the ability to make a combinations of storage types appear as one. They have the ability built in to move data between tiers of disk from the slowest of the spinning rust to the fastest of the Solid state storage based on frequency of access and you, the admin, doesn ™t need to waste a moment doing it. SANs can encrypt your data at rest with no overhead to IBM i.SANs can create a copy of 20TB of data in just seconds, really! OK Not really but it looks like it did so effectively it did. That copy can now be used to perform a backup or to run reports at a point in time or as a training environment or a test environment. When you ™re done with it it goes away as fast as it was created, in a flash.SANs can replicate date near or far for use in disaster recovery or high availability environments.Higher end SANs can even front end other storage presenting that to IBM i or migrating data from one SAN to another.In this session we ™ll show how to make each of the above work and how each of these can be useful in your shop.Learning objectives:Understand how to encrypt data at rest.Understand how to set up easy tier to enable data movement betweenstorage tiers.Understand how to build, trigger, and reset a Flash copy.Understand how to build a replicated data set between Storwize SANsUnderstand how to use the command line on StorwizeUnderstand how to communicate and control a Storwize SAN from IBM i

What you need to know to successfully upgrade to IBM i 7.4
When doing an upgrade to IBM i, there is more work involved in planning the upgrade than in the upgrade itself. When you have done the planning, the upgrade is simple. This session covers planning tips, prerequisites, hardware issues, software compatibility, and then post-installation requirements. Your upgrade isn't complete until this last step is done. While this presentation focuses on upgrading to V7.3, if you are upgrading to an earlier release, (V7.1, V7.2), we also cover those releases.

Worst Practices in Systems Management.
We've all heard stories of things gone wrong, some were just bad, some were horrible, and some were just plain hilarious! The more you know of these things the more likely you can avoid them. This session will be a user feedback session where the horrible terrible and very bad experieneces of audience members will be added to the speakers experiences and used as educational tools to prevent those problems from killing us. You know the rule, smart people learn from their mistakes, the truly brilliant learn from someone else's. Come make yourself look brilliant! Learning Objectives:System Admins have every opportunity to be the goat and no opportunity to be the hero. This session will help avoid some of the goat opportunities.

IBM i Services the future of systems management
IBM i Services are perhaps the best kept secret of managing and monitoring IBM i. Relatively few users of our favourite platform know what they are and even fewer use them regularly. This is a crying shame as they are truly remarkable. IBM i Services can tell you in seconds what it takes a skilled system operator minutes or even hours to discover.http://powerwire.eu/are-ibm-i-services-the-future-of-systems-management
