IBM Systems Magazine, Mainframe Edition - November/December 2011 - 17

For instance, the z/OS* platform on System z is designed to be a highly secure, multitenant, shareable system, and the collaborative synergy can reduce CPU use by leveraging the latest processor improvements, increased memory, solid-state disk and z/OS enhancements. While the list of enhancements is extensive, here is a closer look at some of the key improvements.

overflow sequential access method (OSAM) and virtual storage access method (VSAM) buffer pools without taking IMS offline. The number of VSAM shared-buffer-pool IDs is increased from 16 to 255, enabling you to easily grow databases and

applications. FFDB storage is also improved. Some working pools obtained in 31-bit virtual storage can be page-fixed in 64-bit real storage, allowing them to be fixed, which, for some clients, improves the performance of application scheduling.

WEBINAR

Database Management For starters, IMS 12 will deliver the IMS catalog, which offers a trusted and comprehensive view of IMS database metadata and is fully managed by IMS. In addition, support for Java* and XML is enhanced, simplifying IMS development and direct access to data. IMS Fast Path Buffer Manager enhancements utilize 64-bit storage and full-function dynamic buffer pool support, centralized repository support and improved commands, providing greater availability and overall system performance. Those with capacity constraints can expect relief with extended address volume (EAV) support, database recovery control (DBRC) enhancement, and Fast Path and full-function database (FFDB) upgrades. Early performance testing of the IMS 12 Fast Path secondary index (FPSI) showed remarkable gains in internal throughput (ITR). For example, IMS data entry databases (DEDBs) with two secondary indexes executed a sample workload with a 60-percent ITR improvement compared to the same workload with hierarchical direct access method (HDAM) databases with two secondary indexes. Additionally, I/O activity per second is reduced by 43 percent through the use of FPSIs and DEDBs. For IMS FFDBs, you can now dynamically add, modify and delete

What’s New in Crypto for z/OS?
We’ll discuss the current trends in extending data security for the mainframe, pros/cons of encryption methods and proven ways to protect data including a native z/OS encryption implementation that’s easy to use with CICS or any z/OS environment.

> WHO SHOULD ATTEND: Those with senior level technical or business
responsibility for enterprise data security and data protection

> Tuesday, November 15, 2011 – 10:00 am PT; Noon CT; 1 PM ET > AGENDA:
Mainframes remain the core of business-critical operations in most of the world’s largest and most successful enterprises, including those in banking, insurance, healthcare, and retail. But as IT management will attest, there can be issues with complexity when it comes to securing critical information on the mainframes running on z/OS. Implementing an encryption solution is typically disruptive to business operations and requires hundreds of lines of code to acquire and store keys and perform cryptographic operations. Adding to the complexity are the deep expertise and highly specialized knowledge needed to keep all the moving parts working. Not only that, but roughly 80% of z/OS customers use CICS, yet many vendors offer no developer abstraction to make it easy to encrypt from CICS transactions. In this webcast we’ll discuss proven strategies for easily implementing data security in the z/OS environment. You’ll learn about: s %XTENDING THE PROVEN SECURITY Æ DEFENSES OF THE MAINFRAME TO PROTECT INFORMATION ASSETS against new world threat to data s 0ROS AND CONS OF VARIOUS TYPES OF ENCRYPTION AND KEY MANAGEMENT s 3IMPLIlED KEY MANAGEMENT THAT VIRTUALLY ELIMINATES KEY MANAGEMENT ISSUES s !
