Using four z990 engines to support two Linux WebFOCUS clients and 20 z990 engines to support one Linux WebFOCUS report server under IBM z/VM software in one LPAR to access DB2 database for z/OS on a different LPAR via Hipersocket, it demonstrated strong WebFOCUS server scalability.
Stonesoft in combination with the mainframe's Hipersocket technology offers an outstanding combination of throughput and security.
Linux Client Driver -- The NEON Client driver has been ported to Linux running on S/390,and has been modified to support the IBM HiperSocket technology for high-speed communications between Linux resident J2EE application servers on S/390 and the OS/390 partition.
10 extracts significant additional value from installed specialty processors by expanding the scope of zIIP-eligible functions to include large message transport across HiperSocket connections, global data mirroring (XRC), and XML parsing services.
New HiperSocket technology -- provides high speed TCP/IP connectivity between virtual servers within a single z900, creating a network in a box.
Now even easier to use, a single specification can backup an entire system with record setting performance, while on zSeries IBM eServers FDR/UPSTREAM employs HiperSockets to further accelerate backup/restore throughput.
Supported transport links between systems include TCP/IP communications networks, CTC connections between z/OS Mainframes, HiperSockets and Alebra's exclusive z/OpenGate (A high-speed FICON and FCP gateway between an IBM z/OS Mainframe and Windows, Linux and UNIX Systems).
In addition to supporting both conventional TCP/IP communications networks and IBM's Hipersockets between z/OS and Linux on an IFL, Alebra's PDM also supports its high-speed and highly efficient z/OpenGate transport.
In addition, there are now up to 16 HiperSockets, which
