MVS and z/OS overview
The Multiple Virtual Storage (MVS) operating system is well known as the IBM flagship of operating systems. It was first included in the OS/390 family, and actually it is part of the z/OS product.
During this course, participants:
- get an insight in the meaning of MVS as operating system;
- understand the basic concepts of z/OS and its subsystems;
- learn to interpret the MVS features in the context of z/OS;
- become familiar with the z/OS environment;
- get an insight in the evolution of MVS to z/OS.
No public sessions are currently scheduled. We will be pleased to set up an on-site course or to schedule an extra public session (in case of a sufficient number of candidates). Interested? Please let us know.
Every future user of z/OS.
