May be you have some time to read an interesting book over the weekend.. At least in Germany it will be a grey and rainy weekend.
How about an IBM Redbook ?
If you have a smart phone or tablet you may download the new IBM Redbooks mobile app for iOS and Android. I Like that app, you can search for Redbooks, view table of contents of a Redbook, save Redbooks, build your own Redbook library and more. Just a tip: If you select a Redbook for reading, save it before you select read. You will not be able to save it, if you are already reading it.
On the app's "Find IBM Redbooks" page you select just published, most popular, subject area (e.g. security, Networking, storage, ...) or publication type (Redbooks, Redpaper, Solution Guide, ...) or just search. You can get the app from the Apple App Store or Google play.
More information on the IBM Redbook mobile app is here.
The new IBM Redbook "Enhanced Networking on IBM z/VSE" could be one of the first books in your mobile Redbook library . Besides z/VSE team members, the two TCP/IP vendors - CSI International (CSI) and Barnard Software, Inc (BSI) - participated. The Redbook gives an overview about the networking options, addresses both TCP/IP stacks - TCP/IP for VSE/ESA and IPv6/VSE, the Linux Fast Path, openSSL and compares the TCP/IP stacks and protocols.
You may also download the new z/VSE Redbook from here.
And there is another IBM Redbook I recommend: System z in a Mobile World - a point of view publication. It has just a few pages, but is worth to read. Two thirds of that Redbook give a high level overview about mobile in the enterprise. The last few paragraphs are related to z/OS.
Do you consider to access z/VSE from mobile devices ? ... or is it already real ?
You may download that paper here - or just save it in your mobile library.
Have a nice weekend - and good reading ;-)
