Massive amounts of data move as messages between applications, systems and services at any given time. If an application isn’t ready or if there’s a service interruption, messages and transactions can be lost or duplicated, costing businesses time and money to make things right.
IBM has expertly refined MQ over more than 25 years in the market. With MQ, if a message can’t be delivered immediately, it’s secured in a queue where it waits until delivery is assured. Where competitors may deliver messages twice or not at all, MQ moves data, including file data, once — and once only. Never lose a message with MQ.
With the average cost of a data breach hitting USD 3.86 million globally⁹, businesses that move a lot of highly sensitive information need the powerful features of MQ Advanced. Where MQ protects data on the move, MQ Advanced extends those security features to protect data on the move and at rest — keeping messages encrypted while they’re stored in queues. It also lets you harness simple yet powerful high availability to protect data from unplanned outages. And it offers advanced blockchain coordination and file transfer capabilities that can help modernize your infrastructure.
Deploy MQ in one of four ways. IBM MQ on Cloud makes it easy to be up and running in minutes, with all services and upgrades managed for you and clear pricing levels built around only what you need. MQ on-premises software lets you run MQ on the infrastructure you already have. IBM MQ Appliance gives you the scalability and security of MQ with the simplicity, convenience and low total cost of ownership of a dedicated appliance. And IBM MQ for z/OS® brings the strength of MQ software to the mainframe, letting you move data anywhere in the mainframe environment.
