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. »

The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...
"At our booth we are showing how to provide trust in the Internet of Things. Trust is where everything starts to become secure and trustworthy.

While great strides have been made relative to the video aspects of remote collaboration, audio technology has basically stagnated. Typically all audio is mixed to a single monaural stream and emanates from a single point, such as a speakerphone or a speaker associated with a video monitor. This leads to confusion and lack of understanding among participants especially regarding who is actually speaking. Spatial teleconferencing introduces the concept of acoustic spatial separation between conference participants in three dimensional space. This has been shown to significantly improve comprehe...
The Industrial Internet revolution is now underway, enabled by connected machines and billions of devices that communicate and collaborate. The massive amounts of Big Data requiring real-time analysis is flooding legacy IT systems and giving way to cloud environments that can handle the unpredictable workloads. Yet many barriers remain until we can fully realize the opportunities and benefits from the convergence of machines and devices with Big Data and the cloud, including interoperability, data security and privacy.
Performance is the intersection of power, agility, control, and choice. If you value performance, and more specifically consistent performance, you need to look beyond simple virtualized compute. Many factors need to be considered to create a truly performant environment. In his General Session at 15th Cloud Expo, Harold Hannon, Sr. Software Architect at SoftLayer, discussed how to take advantage of a multitude of compute options and platform features to make cloud the cornerstone of your online presence.
