Batch application and Online Transaction Processing accelerator
Optimize batch applications or Online Transaction Processing applications with very high transaction throughput rates to use fewer resources (CPU and I/O (In/Out)) while improving application performance. Sharply reduce batch run times and dramatically improve overall system performance.
z/OS, Db2, and IMS version compatibility
You can operate IBM Z Table Accelerator on all version levels of the z/OS operating system; on all version levels of DB2 (and in a Db2 stored procedure environment with multiple Task Control Blocks; and all version levels of IMS (with the optional IBM Z Table Accelerator /ISPF interface supporting all version levels of Interactive System Productivity Facility).
Virtual Table Share Manager
With Virtual Table Share (VTS), you can augment the IBM Z Table Accelerator core product with the capability of sharing table data across regions.
Agile market-reactive application solution
Run applications almost as fast as embedded-rules applications, but with business rules externalized so that they can be updated in hours or days rather than weeks or months.
Run IBM Z Table Accelerator with full capability in a Sysplex environment. Read-Only (R-O) tables are fully supported across LPARs—updates to R-O tables are managed using Linear Data Set mappings. Read/Write tables can be managed using Db2 stored procedures. Datasets are fully supported across all MVS (Multiple Virtual Storage) images in a GRS configuration.
The minimum required level of operating system is IBM z/OS V2.2, or later.
The minimum required hardware is IBM System z10 EC or subsequent 64-bit z/ Architecture processors.
