High-Performance Sort for z Systems

MFX® Slashes CPU Costs While Optimizing Overall System Efficiency

Mainframe

Even Better Performance, Better Savings!

MFX for z/OS Release 2.1

Syncsort MFX for z/OS 2.1 leverages the latest advancements in mainframe technology, including IBM’s zHPF architecture and deeper exploitation of zIIP engines, to help you overcome the challenges of modern mainframe systems.

  • Faster Performance. MFX 2.1 leverages the new IBM z Systems High Performance FICON (zHPF) architecture to deliver up to 15% faster elapsed times
  • Enhanced OPTMODES. Optimize performance, based on what’s most important to you – elapsed time or CPU time
  • Higher Developer’s Productivity. New data functions such as field type comparisons & parsed field identification; and 64-bit addressing allow your developers to get more done in less time
Better Performance, Better Savings

zIIP Execution for Copy, SMS Compression and Sort Workloads in One Single Package

Meet Syncsort’s ZPSaver Suite!

The ZPSaver Suite is a set of enhanced technologies for Syncsort MFX to offload Copy, SMS Compression and Sort processing to zIIP processors, effectively reducing the workload on the main CPU. Specifically, the ZPSaver Suite includes:

  • Copy in zIIP: The only Copy solution that offloads CPU cycles to zIIP engines and executes transparently with your current JCL and control statements. Reduce Copy-related TCB CPU time by up to 90% and achieve up to 25% faster elapsed times with ZPSaver Suite
  • Compression in zIIP: A high-performance and cost-effective alternative for SMS compression. Compression in zIIP offloads Sort & Copy of SMS compressed datasets to zIIP processors, saving up to 90% of TCB CPU time while meeting or exceeding required elapsed times
  • Sort in zIIP: A high-performance, transparent enhanced replacement for sort processing that executes almost all sort steps on zIIP engines. Reduce Sort related TCB CPU time by up to 95%

The fastest and most resource-efficient sort/merge/copy technology available

MFX for z/VSE

 

Syncsort MFX for z/VSE delivers the fastest and most resource-efficient sort/merge/copy technology available and is the only z/VSE sort solution that offers Dynamic Storage Manager (DSM).

  • Significantly reduced Elapsed time, CPU time and SIOs – up to 40%
  • Virtual Sortwork accesses data at memory speed rather than DASD speed
  • MFX program library virtual memory avoids load and program fetch overhead as well as the use of SVA space
  • Sort manager manages Sortwork for multiple sorts and dynamically optimizes space and mix of media based on sort characteristics and system conditions
