  11. 11. z/OS 1.5 Enhancements <ul><li>Multi-Level Security </li></ul><ul><li>Combined with IBM’s DB2 UDB for z/OS Version 8, z/OS provides multilevel security on the zSeries mainframe to help meet the stringent security requirements of government agencies and financial institutions, and can help open up new options for e-hosting facilities. </li></ul><ul><li>Multilevel security technology allows IT administrators to give users access to information based on their need to know, or clearance level. It is designed to prevent individuals from accessing unauthorized information and to prevent individuals from declassifying information. </li></ul><ul><li>With multilevel security support in IBM’s z/OS 1.5 and DB2 V8, customers can enable a single repository of data to be managed at the row level and accessed by individuals based on their need to know. For example, a person with a top secret clearance can be enabled to access more information in a database than someone without that clearance level . </li></ul>
  12. 12. z/OS 1.5 Enhancements <ul><li>Self Optimizing </li></ul><ul><li>z/OS 1.5 simplifies WLM control for WebSphere. Customers now have the choice to manually define WebSphere application environments for WLM or have WebSphere define them as and when required. </li></ul>
  13. 13. z/OS 1.5 Enhancements <ul><li>Performance </li></ul><ul><li>DFSMS can significantly enhance application backup by enabling DFSMShsm to utilize volume level fast replication. The fast backup is designed to exploit the FlashCopy® and virtual concurrent copy capability of IBM TotalStorage® Enterprise Storage Server® and IBM RAMAC® Virtual Array (RVA) respectively. </li></ul><ul><li>DFSMShsm Fast Replication in z/OS 1.5 also provides a fast, easy to use backup and recovery solution specifically designed for DB2 Universal Database™ (UDB) for z/OS V8. It is designed to allow fast, non-disruptive backups to be taken at appropriate events when there is minimum activity at the application level or when a fast point-in-time backup is desired. </li></ul>
  14. 14. z/OS 1.5 Enhancements <ul><li>Security </li></ul><ul><li>Intrusion Detection Services were introduced in z/OS 1.2. The scope of these services are extended in z/OS 1.5. </li></ul>
  15. 15. z/OS 1.5 Enhancements <ul><li>Simplified Management </li></ul><ul><li>Infoprint Central is a graphical user interface for managing print jobs and printers across systems. The Library Center for z/OS is a new internet facility to access the z/OS library, with enhanced search facilities. </li></ul><ul><li>Managed System for Setup (msys for Setup) is an element of z/OS that makes it easier to define and configure technologies on z/OS. With z/OS 1.5 four new technologies are supported by msys for Setup: RMF, FTP, ISPF and DB2 UDB for z/OS V8. </li></ul>
  16. 16. z/OS 1.6 Enhancements <ul><li>Application Integration </li></ul><ul><li>Increased scale and performance </li></ul><ul><li>64-bit C/C++ application development and deployment </li></ul><ul><li>64-bit JAVA (available as separate product) </li></ul><ul><li>Improved performance </li></ul><ul><li>New C/C++ compiler options to exploit z890 and z990 servers </li></ul><ul><li>Unicode performance improvements in z/OS UNIX </li></ul><ul><li>Improvements to z/OS UNIX </li></ul><ul><li>New commands supported (clear, uptime) </li></ul><ul><li>Enhanced Euro symbol support </li></ul><ul><li>Pre-built UNICODE environment </li></ul>
  17. 17. z/OS 1.6 Enhancements <ul><li>Improved TCP/IP Network Management </li></ul><ul><li>Sysplex support for IPv6 industry standard </li></ul><ul><li>High availability - TCP/IP Sysplex enhancements </li></ul><ul><li>Automatic Takeover when TCPIP stack  is not healthy </li></ul><ul><li>Monitor key heath indicators </li></ul><ul><li>Option to manage TN3270 in separate address space from TCP/IP </li></ul><ul><li>Enterprise Extender enhancements for SNA over TCP/IP </li></ul>
  18. 18. z/OS 1.6 Enhancements <ul><li>Simplified Management of z/OS Security Features </li></ul><ul><li>RACF </li></ul><ul><li>Support for recoverable passwords </li></ul><ul><li>Improved interoperability with LDAP change log </li></ul><ul><li>Ability to update most RACF classes without IPL </li></ul><ul><li>LDAP 64bit and IPv6 support </li></ul><ul><li>SSL enhanced certificate management </li></ul>

  22. 22. z/OS 1.7 Enhancements <ul><li>Simplifying z/OS Management </li></ul><ul><li>To help simplify systems management, the IBM Health Checker for z/OS is now a base component of z/OS, providing an integrated tool for checking on best practices for configuration values. Significantly more checking is provided and the tool has a simplified user interface. </li></ul><ul><li>IBM intends to provide a new user interface for z/OS management that is planned to help the new generation of Information Technology workers by automating, eliminating, and simplifying many z/OS management tasks. </li></ul><ul><li>The first phase of the new user interface is planned to provide real-time health check information executed by the IBM Health Checker for z/OS and configuration status information for z/OS systems and sysplex resources. The new interface contains built-in automation and expert advice capabilities that provide detailed contextual information on alerts and corrective actions. </li></ul>
  23. 23. z/OS 1.7 Enhancements <ul><li>Simplifying Network Security (continued) </li></ul><ul><li>As security concerns continue to increase, more enterprises are deploying network security protocols, such as IP Security (IPSec) and Transport Layer Security (TLS) on z/OS to protect their mission-critical data as it crosses the network. </li></ul><ul><li>However, the programming changes needed to enable applications for security, and the complexity of security configuration can increase the cost and deployment time for network security. In z/OS V1R7, we add the following new functions to z/OS Communications Server to address these issues by simplifying the requirements for implementing network security on z/OS: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Application Transparent Transport Layer Security (AT-TLS). This function provides TLS for TCP applications without requiring application modification for TLS enablement. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Communications Server IPSec (CS IPSec). This function provides an alternative to z/OS Firewall Technologies for host-based IPSec and IP filtering. </li></ul></ul>
  24. 24. z/OS 1.7 Enhancements <ul><li>Simplifying Network Security (continued) </li></ul><ul><li>Both AT-TLS and CS IPSec feature a policy-based </li></ul><ul><li>configuration that: </li></ul><ul><li>Requires less definition </li></ul><ul><li>Uses existing z/OS Communications Server infrastructure, such as the policy agent </li></ul><ul><li>Is optimized for host-based security scenarios </li></ul><ul><li>To help you implement these new functions, z/OS V1R7 includes a new configuration tool, the Network Security Configuration Assistant (NSCA). This tool combines the configuration activities for AT-TLS and IPSec into a single administrative task </li></ul>
  25. 25. z/OS 1.7 Enhancements <ul><li>Other Enhancements </li></ul><ul><li>To help customers build and extend their z/OS applications, z/OS V1.7 delivers C/C++ enhancements and enhanced support for TLS (Transport Layer Security) designed to be transparent to applications. </li></ul><ul><li>The dynamic capabilities of z/OS are also extended with the TCP/IP Sysplex Load Balancing Advisor for better interaction with network-based load balancers and integration between Sysplex Distributor and Workload Manager. </li></ul><ul><li>z/OS V1.7 provides advances in business resiliency and security with extensions to GDPS for system recovery and improvements in RACF interoperability, including support for mixed-case passwords. </li></ul><ul><li>Customers also may see a reduction in their need for IPLs with dynamic service activation for z/OS UNIX® System Services. </li></ul><ul><li>In addition, z/OS V1.7 can simplify network management with JES2 NJE support for TCP/IP (planned to be available in 1Q2006). </li></ul>
  26. 26. z/OS Support for the IBM System z9-109 <ul><li>The new System z9-109, designed to provide systems leadership in an integrated heterogeneous infrastructure, is supported by z/OS V1.4 and above. </li></ul><ul><li>The powerful combination of z/OS V1.7 and z9-109 can provide significantly increased I/O addressability and bandwidth, designed to help improve availability, performance, cryptography, and problem diagnosis while providing more options for network connectivity. </li></ul>
  27. 27. z/OS Support for the IBM System z9-109 (continued) <ul><li>These new functions include: </li></ul><ul><li>Multiple subchannel sets support: Provides a second set of subchannels for defining Parallel Access Volume (PAV) aliases. This new function can help provide relief from the 64K device limit by allowing PAV aliases to be defined without making device numbers unavailable for defining additional devices. </li></ul><ul><li>Support for additional subchannels on the z9-109: The z9-109 makes an additional 768 subchannels available, making it possible to define up to 65,280 devices for each z/OS LPAR. </li></ul>
  28. 28. z/OS Support for the IBM System z9-109 (continued) <ul><li>Wild branch diagnosis improvement. </li></ul><ul><li>MIDAW (modified indirect addressing words) support: The z9-109 implements a new function for channel programming, modified indirect addressing words (MIDAWs). MIDAWs can be used to move data over FICON and ESCON (R) channels. For FICON channels, this support can provide substantially better response time while increasing overall channel bandwidth. MIDAWs exploitation by z/OS is expected to improve performance for some DB2 table scan, DB2 sequential prefetch, BSAM, and extended-format data set operations by reducing system overhead for I/O requests, with no application changes. </li></ul>
  29. 29. z/OS Support for the IBM System z9-109 (continued) <ul><li>z/OS V1.7 requires the z/Architecture, and runs only on the IBM System z9-109 and zSeries (z890, z990, z800, z900) servers. </li></ul><ul><li>z/OS V1.7 is an important release for all z/OS V1.4 customers, because it is the last z/OS release that they can migrate to in a single step. End of service for z/OS V1.4 is March 31, 2007, and customer plans to migrate to z/OS V1.7 should be in place to ensure migration is complete by this date. </li></ul>
