HiperSockets

HiperSockets

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).

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.
Our tests demonstrate that Alebra's new PDM Release 5 in conjunction with the z/OpenGate transport results in a 96% reduction in the CPU resources required by conventional communication networks or Hipersockets," said Bill Yeager, Alebra's chief technology officer.
In addition, there are now up to 16 HiperSockets, which
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.
