An IBM System z mainframe facility that moves data very quickly across multiple server images. It creates the appearance of up to four TCP/IP networks, each independently tunable, within the central processing complex (CPC).
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.
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.
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.
Building on advanced instant technology, INNOVATION solutions for non-disruptive business protection and enterprise storage management particularly leverage the high performance connectivity technology of the IBM 64-bit zServer mainframe like FICON, PAV, GigaBit OSA Express and HiperSockets to reduce the impact of business continuance protection on e-business applications with unique capabilities like non-disruptive Incremental Backup, Instant Dataset Move/Copy and Instant Restore from Incremental FlashCopy Backup.
NEON Systems' Shadow client driver has been ported to Linux running on IBM eServer zSeries(TM) (z800, z900 and S/390) mainframes and supports the IBM HiperSockets technology to provide customers with high-speed communications between Linux resident J2EE application servers and z/OS or OS/390 data and transaction systems.
