Course Content

This two day non-workshop course is designed to provide continuing education for system administrators who have extensive experience with previous levels of POWER hardware, PowerVM, and AIX. It covers various enhancements to Power hardware and firmware and to the AIX operating system. It starts with an overview of POWER7 architecture and equipment. It then proceeds with discussions on various software and firmware enhancements (ranging from AIX 7.1 TL0 and PowerVM 2.2.0 through AIX 7.1 TL2 and PowerVM 2.2.2). These enhancements include Virtual Fibre Channel port status, Active Memory Deduplication, Active Memory Expansion, 4 thread SMT, and other enhancements to the areas of AIX security, performance, and workload partitions.

To learn only the very latest enhancements, attendance at IBM Technical conferences or symposiums is recommended.

For a workshop course with hands-on lab exercises, attend Power and AIX Enhancements Workshop (AN080). The workshop course will often lag behind POWER7 and AIX 7 - Whats New (AN060) in receiving the latest updates, but has the advantage of hands-on exercises. There can be a significant overlap in discussion content between POWER7 and AIX 7 - Whats New (AN060) and Power and AIX Enhancements Workshop (AN080), depending upon where these courses are in their update cycles; read the course descriptions carefully. To learn only the very latest enhancements, attendance at IBM Technical conferences or symposiums is recommended.
