CA also uses zIIP to cut the processor time on its database management software, IDMS (Integrated Database Management System).
The new version, which also takes advantage of CA's Mainframe 2.0 technology, brings to 14 the number of CA mainframe solutions that make optimum use of the zIIP specialty processor to support greater workloads without consuming additional general-purpose processing capacity.
The company said that the new version, which also takes advantage of CA's Mainframe 2.0 technology, brings to 14 the number of CA mainframe solutions that make optimum use of the zIIP specialty processor to support greater workloads without consuming additional general-purpose processing capacity.
It uses patent-pending technology to expand the utilization of the zIIP specialty engine to additional workloads beyond DB2, including the non-relational mainframe databases Adabas, IMS/DB, IDMS and VSAM as well SOAP/XML parsing necessary for creating Web services within the mainframe to applications residing within CICS, IMS/TM, IDMS and Natural.

<p>Customers on the fence about bringing in new capacity could end up with a "too good to be true" offer, Chuba said.<p>Other strategies for saving money include purchasing IBM's mainframe specialty engines -- the IFL for Linux, zIIP for database workloads and zAAP for Java and XML.
Three of the eight IT management products announced last month by CA to evaluate, monitor and use IBM's System z9 Integrated Information Processor (zIIP) were DB2 database management tools.

Increased zIIP Exploitation - MFX for z/OS 1.4 extends System z Integrated Information Processor (zIIP) exploitation to generate additional sort processing and lower billable CPU time associated with sorting.
* zIIP: Integrated Information Processor--used for processing certain, distributed database workloads
<p>The study says IBM's strategy of building specialty processors for the mainframe, such as the Integrated Facility for Linux (IFL) System z Integrated Information Processor (zIIP) for ERP and CRM transactions and z Application Assist Processor (zAAP) processors for Java and XML transactions are key to ongoing success of the platform.
With this release, users will achieve substantial reductions in elapsed time and CPU time through SyncSort's ability to offload certain sort processes to a zIIP processor and SyncSort's effective use of the z9's(TM) MIDAW facility.
