This new, three-day course from RSM describes and explains how to design, set up and administer effective IBM MQ clustering.<br>A significant feature of this course is the time devoted to extensive practical exercises. The exercises are conducted in a Windows environment, but the principles learned are relevant to all MQ implementations, including z/OS.<br><br>This course is also available for one-company, on-site presentations and for live presentation over the Internet, via the Virtual Classroom Environment service.
