Sharing z/OS Data Everywhere at Lower Cost
IBM z Systems* is the system of record for the most valuable
business data in the world. HostBridge Redis for z/OS* lets
you share it with every system and every user in real time
while lowering processing costs.

C

loud architectures that embrace
system of record assets, mobile
access to data by users everywhere,
end-to-end analytics-these are critical
drivers for IBM z Systems customers. To
T
achieve such goals, enterprises must find
a way to share their high-value mainframe
data with any platform, inside or outside
the organization, and any user on any
device. They must find the performance and
scalability needed to deliver huge volumes of
data in real time at the lowest cost.
Consider two examples. A financial
services firm relies on CICS* apps and
VSAM* and DB2* databases to run its
business. Yet the company's 5 million
customers and 10,000 employees are
thoroughly modern users who demand
a complete, unified, rich view of data and
application functionality. T
To meet user
demand, the company runs mainframe
processes at ever-higher volumes and cost.
A national claims processor handles
millions of prescriptions every day. At one
time, the company reported data through
an overnight batch process. But today
they must share up-to-the-minute data to
healthcare providers, pharmacies, hospitals,
insurance carriers, government agencies,

and millions of individuals. This requires
making tremendous volumes of mainframe
data seamlessly available to information
systems of every kind.
The critical question is how to do it
efficiently and economically. At HostBridge,
we believe the answer is to utilize the data
technology powering many of today's ultrascalable cloud and mobile apps-Redis.
HostBridge Redis for z/OS brings a
new NoSQL data store to the IBM
z Systems platform for the first time. It
is a modernizing extension to traditional
transaction processing systems (CICS and
IMS*) and database systems (DB2, VSAM,
and Datacom*). Customers who shift
portions of their data-sharing workloads
to HostBridge Redis, or use it to run new
workloads, will gain performance, scalability,
and interoperability; add value to existing
systems; and reduce the cost of processing
these workloads.
HostBridge Redis capabilities offer a
range of benefits required in modern
data-sharing architectures:
1 In-memory data caching permits much

faster request/response processing than
is possible with traditional databases.

1 Advanced key-value store provides more

flexible data structures to transcend the
limitations of traditional data models.
1 Data persistence yields dependability,
scalability, fault tolerance and ACID
compliance.
1 Asynchronous master-slave and publishsubscribe replication enables scalability,
automated sharing, and can be leveraged
to meet virtually any multidirectional datasharing requirement.
Lightning fast, ultra-scalable HostBridge
Redis brings z/OS data into the age of cloud
and mobile.
