Syncsort certifie son logiciel MFX pour EMC Disk Library for mainframe

Des performances exceptionnelles au service d'une nette hausse des débits systèmes et d'une réduction significative des coûts

PARIS - 9 janvier 2013

Leader mondial de l'intégration de données, Syncsort annonce aujourd'hui l'auto-certification de son logiciel haute performance de tri de données mainframe Syncsort® MFX® pour les produits EMC® Disk Library for mainframe, leaders des bibliothèques de bandes virtuelles (VTL) pour environnements mainframe. Cette auto-certification a été réalisée en collaboration avec EMC, dans le cadre de son ISV Backup Recovery Systems Partner Program. La combinaison de ces solutions haute performance réduit considérablement les temps processeurs et les temps de traitement sur mainframe, pour une augmentation des débits systèmes et une baisse de la consommation de ressources coûteuses.

Aujourd'hui encore, le traitement sur mainframe demeure la clef de voûte de l'entreprise. Et pour de nombreux grands groupes, les applications mainframe critiques se situent toujours et encore au cœur de leur activité. Or, afin de limiter, voire de réduire les coûts associés au traitement sur mainframe, beaucoup d'entreprises cherchent de nouveaux moyens d'optimiser la consommation MIPS, de réduire leur consommation de stockage et d'implémenter de nouvelles technologies plus économiques. Cela passe généralement par l'élimination des bandes pour, entre autres, améliorer les performances, simplifier la reprise d'activité et optimiser les niveaux de disponibilité. Toutefois, dans de nombreux cas, le retour sur ces investissements se fait encore attendre.

Syncsort MFX intègre les fonctionnalités PARASORT et MAXSORT pour optimiser l'efficacité globale des systèmes. PARASORT réduit le temps de tri de grands ensembles de données sur bandes multi-volumes et/ou concaténés. Grâce à cet algorithme de tri parallèle, Syncsort MFX peut lire les données de quatre lecteurs de bandes simultanément. Quant à la technologie MAXSORT, elle permet de trier de grands ensembles de données sur un minimum d'espace de stockage à accès direct (DASD). Pour ce faire, MAXSORT segmente les données en entrée, trie les segments créés et les stocke sur bandes, avant de fusionner le tout en une seule tâche.

La forte capacité en disques des bibliothèques EMC Disk Library for mainframe permet aux utilisateurs d'allouer davantage de disques au processus de tri. Ils obtiennent ainsi un tri plus performant tout en baissant leurs coûts. Le rôle du logiciel Syncsort MFX consiste à agir sur l'efficacité du tri pour aller encore plus loin dans la performance. De fait, d'après un récent test de performance mené par Syncsort, l'association de Syncsort MFX et EMC Disk Library for mainframe permet de réduire de 56 % les temps d'horloge et de 14 % les temps processeurs.

« À l'heure où les environnements mainframe poursuivent leur expansion pour sous-tendre les processus critiques des entreprises, il est crucial de pouvoir protéger les données mainframe à l'aide de nouvelles solutions économiques et évolutives », explique Al Brandt, Vice-président chargé de l'ingénierie DLm chez EMC Corporation. « La gamme de produits EMC Disk Library for mainframe souligne l'engagement d'EMC auprès de la communauté mainframe, tout comme notre collaboration avec Syncsort pour auto-certifier son logiciel MFX dans le cadre de l'EMC ISV Backup Recovery Systems Partner Program. Désormais, les entreprises peuvent déployer le logiciel de tri Syncsort MFX sur les produits EMC Disk Library for mainframe en toute confiance. Elles dopent ainsi l'efficacité processeur tout en protégeant leur environnement mainframe. »

« Depuis plus de 40 ans, Syncsort investit sans relâche dans ses utilitaires de tri sur mainframe leaders du marché afin de créer davantage de valeur et d'économies pour sa base client », déclare Harvey Tessler, co-fondateur et responsable de l'ingénierie mainframe chez Syncsort. « Notre collaboration avec EMC pour l'auto-certification de Syncsort MFX pour EMC Disk Library for mainframe offre à nos clients les outils les plus performants du marché pour l'optimisation de leur environnement mainframe et de leurs processus métiers. »

We’re entering a new era of computing technology that many are calling the Internet of Things (IoT). Machine to machine, machine to infrastructure, machine to environment, the Internet of Everything, the Internet of Intelligent Things, intelligent systems – call it what you want, but it’s happening, and its potential is huge. IoT is comprised of smart machines interacting and communicating with other machines, objects, environments and infrastructures. As a result, huge volumes of data are being generated, and that data is being processed into useful actions that can “command and control” thi...

The key will be in the ability to discover business insight in the midst of an ocean of Big Data generated from billions of embedded devices via Systems of Discover. Businesses will also need to ensure that they can sustain that insight by leveraging the cloud for global reach, scale and elasticity.
"People are a lot more knowledgeable about APIs now. There are two types of people who work with APIs - IT people who want to use APIs for something internal and the product managers who want to do something outside APIs for people to connect to them," explained Roberto Medrano, Executive Vice President at SOA Software, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at Cloud Expo, held Nov 4–6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it's a mix of architectural styles ...
We certainly live in interesting technological times. And no more interesting than the current competing IoT standards for connectivity. Various standards bodies, approaches, and ecosystems are vying for mindshare and positioning for a competitive edge. It is clear that when the dust settles, we will have new protocols, evolved protocols, that will change the way we interact with devices and infrastructure. We will also have evolved web protocols, like HTTP/2, that will be changing the very core of our infrastructures. At the same time, we have old approaches made new again like micro-services...
Connected devices and the Internet of Things are getting significant momentum in 2014. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Hunter, Chief Scientist & Technology Evangelist at Greenwave Systems, examined three key elements that together will drive mass adoption of the IoT before the end of 2015. The first element is the recent advent of robust open source protocols (like AllJoyn and WebRTC) that facilitate M2M communication. The second is broad availability of flexible, cost-effective storage designed to handle the massive surge in back-end data in a world where timely analytics is e...
