Synchronize IBM Z data to the cloud for modern cloud data architectures.

Bring valuable enterprise IBM Z data to your modern enterprise architectures with the IBM Data Gate family of products. Deliver data originating in Db2 for z/OS, IMS and VSAM for hybrid cloud, analytics and AI initiatives with reduced cost, effort, and time.

  • Synchronize IBM Z data to the cloud for ready access by modern data architectures.
  • Data targets include the Iceberg open data format in IBM, Db2 Warehouse SaaS and IBM Cloud Pak for Data.
  • Purpose-built for end-to-end solutions to specific enterprise data challenges.
  • A zIIP (z Integrated Information Processor) enabled log data provider captures Db2 for z/OS log changes, consolidates, encrypts and sends them to a log data processor.
  • The log data provider only requires configuration, no additional installation or maintenance.
  • VSAM and IMS data can be simplified and transformed into a relational table format accessible by SQL-based query tools.
