Synchronous Tape. Desirable? Achievable? Practical?

Continuous availability is increasingly expected for modern data centers. For the mainframe, that includes tape operations. This discussion will address fundamental questions about synchronous tape operations such as: Why would you want it? What should you expect from it? How would you implement it? And, is it compatible with your IT infrastructure and budget? In addition to the technology concepts, the speaker will walk through real world examples from a wide range of environments.

Better Alternatives to Mainframe File Transfer Protocol

TCP/IP is the typical mechanism used in mainframe environments to transfer data. If you are new to file transfer or have been using unsecured FTP, moving to SFTP can be an experience in trial and error. The speaker discusses her experiences with moving from FTP to SFTP, what she learned along the way and the discovery of several faster, easier to use and more secure alternatives.

Off-Host Processing: Continue to Use Your Key Applications While Reducing MIPS and Licensing Costs

What if there is a way to off-host expensive processing without moving entire workloads off the mainframe? Luminex’s Mainframe Data Integration (MDI) SAS Language Processor seamlessly integrates with mainframe workloads while reducing MIPS use and software licensing costs. Attend this Lunch & Learn session to hear Industry Experts in SAS Language and MXG share what is possible.

Mainframe Data Integration Enables The Connected Mainframe

Learn how to securely and cost-effectively integrate the mainframe and distributed platforms to process and access data where it makes the most sense. Mainframe integration initiatives can lead to new business innovations in addition to improving operational efficiency and lowering costs. Learn how to better leverage mainframe-native FICON channels that are inherently designed to provide the fastest, most secure, and cost-effective I/O between mainframes and the rest of the enterprise.
