ANAHEIM, Calif. March 1, 2011
- Syncsort, a global leader in extreme performance data integration and data protection software, today announced that it is extending its mainframe sort technology leadership with the release of Syncsort MFX for z/OS 1.4, a significant update to its flagship mainframe sort product.
- For organizations performing mainframe processing, the execution of mainframe sort jobs often accounts for as much as a quarter of their total resource consumption. However, replacing the default mainframe sort utility for all production jobs may not be an option even when it is clear that better performing and more cost-effective solutions can deliver greater value.
- mainframe sort acceleration
- MFX for z/OS protects organizations’ infrastructure investments by plugging directly into their existing environments to dramatically improve the performance of their most critical and resource intensive sort jobs.
- This approach has proven effective in delivering meaningful business value by significantly reducing MIPS, delivering higher throughput, and shortening batch processing windows. Some early adopters of mainframe sort acceleration have already achieved significant cost savings using MFX for z/OS.
- During Syncsort’s internal benchmarks, MFX for z/OS 1.4 has delivered up to 20 percent improvements in CPU time and 10 percent improvements in elapsed time in comparison to MFX for z/OS 1.3. Those improvements were found to be as high as 50 percent for CPU time and 30 percent for elapsed time versus DFSORT in similar benchmarks.
- General availability of MFX for z/OS 1.4 is planned during the first half of calendar year 2011.
