Commitment to Mainframe & AS/400 platforms

Commitment to Mainframe & AS/400 platforms

The mainframe (zSeries) and AS/400 (iSeries) platforms still represent a core, strategic part of many organizations’ processing platforms. They also represent a more closed environment that creates challenges when it comes to end-user data access and analysis. Arbutus committed to helping our customers work with challenging data sources and challenging platforms like the IBM Mainframe and AS/400 (iseries).

Direct Desktop Access and Control

Direct Desktop Access and Control

Organizations with z/OS, OS/390, MVS, or AS/400 platforms can run the Arbutus Mainframe Server and the Arbutus AS/400 Servers. These servers can work directly with the Arbutus Analyzer, and ConnectPlus desktop components to provide simple access to these data sources.

MAINFRAME and AS/400 SERVERS: DETAILS

The Arbutus Mainframe Server application enables direct, real-time access to, and analysis of, all data sources, including DB2, IMS, ADABAS, VSAM, ISAM, and sequential (QSAM) flat files.

STRENGTHS OF THE MAINFRAME AND AS/400 SERVERS:

ACCESSING AND INTEGRATING ALL DATA

  • The Arbutus Mainframe and AS/400 servers specialize in reading both relational and non-relational data sources, including the most complex legacy file structures.
  • The servers enable each of these data sources to appear as a table in a single unified database.
  • Even though the data may be physically disparate, the tables may be combined in any manner desired, irrespective of the original data source.

MOVING DATA BETWEEN PLATFORMS

  • They allow data sources to be easily moved between server platforms or from the server to the desktop.
  • Data and databases can be easily brought together from multiple platforms for analysis and reporting purposes.

ANALYZING DATA

  • Depending on requirements, analysis can take place on either the server, the desktop, or a combination of each.
  • The servers also allows analysis to occur against ‘live’ data or staged data, providing complete analysis flexibility.

SHARING OF DATA

  • Where the sharing of data is an important part of your work flow processes, these servers supports the easy sharing of data access and analysis among users.
  • It also provides the option for data access to be controlled by a central administrator, whether on-site or from a remote location.

MAINFRAME AS/400 SERVERS: TECHNICAL

 

TECHNICAL FEATURES – BOTH

  • Communication directly to the server via TCP/IP, allowing remote access in distributed environments
  • No intermediate or staging servers are required, although they are supported for workload balancing
  • Small footprint, requiring less than 5MB, exclusive of temporary data files
  • All connectivity can be totally transparent to Windows users who access server data
  • All processing is handled by the server, for maximum performance
  • Host system native keys are used whenever available for query optimization
  • Data transmission delays are minimized, as only the columns and rows required are downloaded
  • Data transmission speeds are further improved through the use of compression
  • Data transmission over public lines can be secured by encryption

 

TECHNICAL FEATURES – MAINFRAME

  • All native mainframe file types are supported, including VSAM, QSAM, PDS, GDG and Tape
  • Direct access to IMS, DB2 and ADABAS is supported, and this data can be combined with disparate sources
  • All native mainframe field types are supported, including Packed, Zoned, Binary and Float
  • Technical Features – AS/400
  • Common AS/400 native file types are supported
  • Direct access to DB2 is supported, and this data can be combined with disparate sources
  • Data can be freely combined with other AS/400 (iSeries) or server data

 

Technical Features – AS/400

  • Common AS/400 native file types are supported
  • Direct access to DB2 is supported, and this data can be combined with disparate sources
