z/OS 2.4: Introduction to z/OS Container Extensions: Running Linux on Z Docker Containers Inside of z/OS


What if you could build a hybrid workload consisting of native z/OS software and Linux on Z software, both running in the same z/OS image?   In this session we will provide an introduction of this exciting new feature of z/OS V2R4, z/OS Container Extensions, which will bring the ability to deploy Linux on Z software packaged as Docker images directly inside a z/OS system using standard Docker container interfaces.  It significantly expands what you do with your z/OS systems by allowing you to deploy Linux on Z software side by side with your z/OS software and middleware while preserving a z/OS operational model and z/OS Qualities of Service.  Come hear about this exciting new capability and begin thinking of the scenarios this can enable in your z/OS environments.
