A modern hybrid cloud approach for cloud access to data originating in Db2 for z/OS

IBM Data Gate and IBM Cloud Pak® for Data enable organizations to synchronize IBM® Db2® for z/OS® data for hybrid cloud, analytics and artificial intelligence (AI) initiatives with reduced cost and effort.

Applications can access a transactionally consistent, synchronized copy of Db2 for z/OS data, hosted by a separate system, enabling a wide range of target platforms including public cloud, on-premises and private cloud deployments.

For organizations with an established IBM Cloud Pak for Data environment, Data Gate simplifies making Db2 for z/OS data available and colocated with cloud-based applications.

  • Built-in integrated synchronization protocol provides an end-to-end solution. 
  • IBM z Integrated Information Processor (zIIP) enabled log data provider captures Db2 for z/OS log changes and sends consolidated, encrypted changes to a log data processor.
  • Integrated log data provider within Db2 for z/OS only requires configuration, no additional installation or maintenance.
