IBM Storage Insights Hands on Lab

This hands-on lab will let you discover how to use the product IBM Storage Insight through an interactive Demo of this product which is available on-line.
Introduction to IBM Spectum Scale Graphical User Interface

In these session, you will use both the Graphical User Interface and Command Line Interface to understand the configuration and value of different features of IBM Spectrum Scale.
Discover IBM Spectrum Virtualize and its advanced features: Hands-on lab 

During this hands-on lab performed on live remote systems, you can discover the ease of use of the Storwize web-based GUI for both basic and advanced administration tasks. You learn how to create volumes and map it to a host, define FlashCopy mappings as well as mirroring relationships to a second Storwize to perform disaster recovery tasks. You can also navigate through the different menus to explore various options like performance monitoring event, physical disk management, and more. 
Extract insight from your unstructured data with IBM Spectrum Discover. 


This hands on lab will guide you through the configuration, operation and usage of an IBM Cloud Object Storage system. The exercises will show the web management GUI, data API’s for object storage using  Simple Object API and S3 API.
Improve cyber security with Dual Authorization in Spectrum protect 8.1.9

Oversee the work of less-experienced administrators to prevent unintended consequences, or create a peer-review process for administrators. Provide an airgap thanks to the new command approval feature adressing a pre-defined set of commands.
Build your Data Driven Multi-Cloud Backup Architecture with IBM Spectrum Protect Cloud Tiering 

IBM Spectrum Protect™ can simplify data protection where data is hosted in physical, virtual, software-defined or cloud environment.
Use the flexible Tier 2 Cloud to optimize your Spectrum Protect's backups & restores from/to hybrid Multi-Cloud.
IBM Spectrum Protect Operations Center GUI (R/O), V8.1.9 with new Dual Authorization and Retention Holds

Implement the new Command Approval (dual auth) improving cyber security, retention HOLDs to simplify compliance, but also the previous enhancements : Tiering to Tape & the SPP's archives 2 Tape provided in V 8.1.8, Retention Sets & Rules to automatically and periodically retain data sets for specific clients... and more than 10 different scenarios available using the Operations Center.
IBM Spectrum Protect V8.1.9: focus on Retentions sets & Retention Holds, Web Client 2.0 for recovery 

Understand the Retention Sets facility to create point-in-time collections, leveraging existing backup data to satisfy long-term data retention requirements. Define Retention HOLDS for an unlimited retention, for example for legal purpose. Use the web client 2.0 for restores, understand how it is implemented, and use the new alternate location feature.

Hands on Lab Machine Learning on Z : Experiment Watson Machine Learning for z/OS as a Data Scientist  IBM LinuxONE / IBM ZMachine Learning z/OSIBM Watson Machine Learning for z/OS (WMLz) is an enterprise machine learning platform that provides end to end management of the entire machine learning workflow. WMLz helps to simplify and significantly reduce the time to train and deploy machine learning models by: • Integrating all the tools and functions needed for machine learning and automating the machine learning workflow. • Providing a platform for better collaboration across different personas, including Data Scientist, Data Engineer, Business Analyst and Application Developers, for a successful machine learning project. • Infusing cognitive capabilities into the machine learning workflow to help determine when model results deteriorate and need to be tuned and provide suggestions for updates or changes.
Hands-On Lab IDAA on Z : Discovering the value of IBM DB2 Analytics Accelerator IBM LinuxONE / IBM ZAnalytics DB2 z/OSThe DB2 Analytics Accelerator is a workload-optimized appliance that enables customers to create insights from queries that would previously take hours, but now run in seconds to minutes without the cumbersome and expensive process of adding indexes or query performance tuning. There is no rewriting of applications or new database designs—the appliance simply attaches to DB2 for z/OS providing an operational deployment in days that can improve query response times up to 2000x. (Key words: System z )
This hands-on Lab  geared towards Database Administrators, System Administrators, and anyone who is interested in getting hands-on experience with the IBM DB2 Analytics Accelerator on Z.
