Presentations by Malcolm Beattie

Here is a list of some of the presentations and talks I've given whose content is available online. The list is sorted in reverse date order so that the most recent presentation is listed first.

zSeries Hardware Reliability

Given at the IBM zSeries Technical Conference at Noordwijk, Netherlands, 13 May 2004. This presentation is subtitled "The RAS features that put zSeries hardware in a league of its own and their benefit for Linux". RAS is the acronym for Reliability, Availability and Serviceability. The reference to Linux is really just because it was included in the Linux track of the conference and the presentation itself concentrates on the underlying hardware RAS. A lot of the content is taken from the article RAS design for the IBM eServer z900, L.C. Alves et al, IBM Journal of Research & Development, Vol 46, No 4/5, July/Sept 2002.
