From my perspective this spring SHARE in San Jose was a “normal” SHARE. It was small enough to run into people to talk but large enough to have good technical content. The “hype” themes this time from a Linux perspective have been Blockchain – more precise Hyperledger – and Docker. The exhibition was also good – from a Linux perspective we had all three distributors partners there.
Here is a completely biased list of presentations that you may want to look at. I’ve only included the ones with handouts. Several good presentations did not have handouts.
Linux / VM / KVM
- KVM on IBM z Systems Performance (part 1 / part 2) – the first KVM on z performance presentation
- Linux Distribution Performance Update – what’s been new performance wise in the distributions in the last year
- Linux Performance Tools in 60 Minutes – my tools overview
- Putting SMT to Work on z/VM – eventually we need SMT nearly everywhere to achieve best throughput
- Whats New in Linux on z Systems? – Martin’s excellent overview on what’s coming from upstream
- z/VM Platform Update – Bill’s overview presentation on what’s new in z/VM
- Getting Started with Blockchain – get an overview over Hyperledger / Blockchain
- Blockchain Architecture – the given presentation was for me the best I heard at SHARE. The handouts are good but nothing compared hearing this one live. You need a good general understanding of Hyperledger / Blockchain to follow this
- Blockchain – How to be Secure, Compliant and “Regulation-Ready”
Security is so important for Blockchain – here are some more details behind it
- Building and Running Your Docker Containers on z Systems
- Docker and z Systems – Overview presentation
- Docker Demystified for Mainframers
Besides my three presentations I’m glad that I could help a few people solve there performance problems. Thanks for all the discussions I had there with clients and IBMers and friends from around the US!
