    Improving The Economics of Mainframe SOA Enablement: Exploiting zIIP/zAAP Specialty Engines Through Next Generation Middleware Improving The Economics of Mainframe SOA Enablement: Exploiting zIIP/zAAP Specialty Engines Through Next Generation Middleware Presentation Transcript

    • Improving The Economics of Mainframe SOA Enablement Exploiting zIIP/zAAP Specialty Engines Through Next Generation Middleware
    • Who is DataDirect Technologies? • Operating Company of Progress Software Corp. • public company (PRGS) – $500m turnover • Profitable, 20+ years in business • 3 product lines: Data Connectivity, Data Integration, Mainframe Integration • Established • Q+E Software &Technosis, Intersolv, Merant, DataDirect • 3 Development centers, 2 in the US, 1 in Belgium (Duffel) • Proven Multi-channel approach (OEM & Corporate) • Focused On • Reducing data connectivity and Integration Complexity • Improving Interoperability & Performace • Lowering Total Cost of Ownership
    • DataDirect’s Unparalled Product Line Session Outline Changing role of z/OS (as a full participant in SOA) Shadow Unified Architecture Impact of MIPS growth IBMs zIIP and zAAP specialty engines Shadows Exploitation of zIIP and zAAP Benefits and lowering TCO
    • SOA Leading To Mainframe Resurgence • SOA is altering the perception and role of the mainframe • Firming up of industry standards has allowed developers to use existing skills/tools • Initially data connectivity - ODBC/JDBC • Web Services/SOA – XML, SOAP, WS -* • Ability to re-combine and re-use within SOA more cost/time efficient than migration • Mainframe now more of an industry standard server, full participant in SOA • Wrap and reuse rather than rip and replace
    • Shadow Simplifies Mainframe SOA Enablement
    • Shadow – Technology Components • z/Services • Publish/consume mainframe applications (BLI, SLI, Data) as Web services • z/Events • Provides a single interface for the real-time capture and publishing of critical mainframe business events • z/Direct • direct, SQL access to mainframe resources data and applications from industry standard ODBC, JDBC client drivers • z/Presentation • expose mainframe applications via Web with HTML browser or via J2EE, .NET and COBOL components
    • DataDirect Shadow Platform Details • Multiple Industry Standard Interfaces • Web Services (SOAP) • Direct SQL Access • Real Time Events • Web Enablement • BPEL 2.0 • Multiple Mainframe Assets • Data: DB2, VSAM, IMS/DB, Adabas • Applications: CICS, IMS/TM, IDMS, Natural • Universal Shadow Studio • Eclipse based window to the mainframe • Enterprise Class Features • Shadow Instrumentation Server • Security Optimization & Management • Workload Manager integration • Industry standard BPEL for service orchestration • Full XA 2PC support with RRS • Multi-tasking and multi-threaded • Maintains mainframe QofS – performance, scalability, security • Offload work to the zIIP
    • Tools To Simplify Development & Reuse Data as a Service From SOAP to BPEL From SQL to SOAP
    • Maintaining Mainframe Quality of Service • Data and transactional integrity are essential • Fundamental to SOA are layers of abstraction • Diagnostics challenge increases with addition of legacy services • Enterprise class management needed for integration
    • SOA and Mainframe Security Management • Each logon (RACROUTE) consumes 6 ms • 1 million web service invocations per day • 11 transactions per second • 1.6 CPU hours savings per day • 50 CPU hours per month (greater than 2 days) • Typical SOM savings > 99%
    • Shadow – Core Functionality • Industry’s only single, unified platform for mainframe integration • SOA – Web services and Real-time events • Data – SQL and Real-time events • Presentation enablement – HTML, Components • Multi-threaded, mainframe address space • Multi-tasking and multi-threaded • Maintains mainframe QofS – performance, scalability, security • Manageability • Instrumentation Server • Sysplex Trace/Browse • Auditable / Charge back • Exploitation of sophisticated z/OS features • Workload Manager • Security Authentication (SOM) • Coupling Facility (XCF) • Offload work to the zIIP
    • Solving The Mainframe TCO Problem • Hardware costs and MSU upgrades are not the main problem • Upgrades trigger a cascade of software cost increases from ISVs that weigh down mainframe TCO • Certain types of workloads could be more effectively handled outside of General Purpose Processor (GPP) • Processing Java on mainframe not MSU friendly • Large ERP or BI related data queries drain performance (i.e. DB2) • Enter the new IBM specialty engines (IFL, zAAP, zIIP) • Run un-measured • Not speed restricted • Workloads on specialty engines do not count against MSUs assigned to the GPP The IBM Mainframe Base: Alive and Kicking Published: July 10, 2007 by Timothy Prickett Morgan
    • Exploiting IBM Innovation IBM introduces new Improves Strategic new architectural mainframe mainframe features - specialty viability innovation engines - IFL (Linux) Addresses competitive zAAP (Java) threats zIIP (database) New innovation Next generation mainframe middleware that uniquely exploits zIIP/zAAP specialty engines Significant performance enhancements for SOA Dramatic improvement in mainframe TCO
    • IBM Exploitation of zIIP Specialty Engine • IBM’s original focus for the zIIP was related to DB2 and support for ERP/CRM/BI data intensive workloads • Better performance and TCO associated with DB2 High Utilization of General Purpose Processor Reduced Utilization of General Purpose Processor
    • Exploiting zIIP for Enhanced SOA Performance • Next generation middleware exploits zIIP for SOA related workloads • Dramatic improvement in SOA performance and TCO Middleware SOAP/XML Request Offload Processing Results – Low to zIIP in High Utilization of GPP
    • Not All Middleware Is Created Equal • Mainframe middleware deployments vary • distributed runtime • mainframe based server • Most mainframe middleware is TCB based, incapable of accessing zIIP specialty engine • Middleware exploitation of specialty engines requires “genetic” alteration to threads • Ability to run in SRB/TCB mode essential • Licensed technology
    • Which Shadow Features Exploit zIIP? • Shadow Foundation • Shadow Networking & TCP/IP Communications layer • Shadow Instrumentation Server (Logging & Tracing) • SOAP and XML Processing/Parsing • Shadow Internal Messaging Shadow XA support Shadow’s Scripting Language • Security Optimization & Mgmt. (SOM) • Shadows ODBC & JDBC processing • Shadow Event Facility (SEF) • Shadows SQL Engine • Metadata Mapping • HTX Processing • …….. 50-98% middleware MSU SAVING
    • Exploiting zAAP for Optimizing BPM • zAAP exploitation enables the mainframe to effectively handle Java workloads and participate in BPM initiatives • Java is primary platform for running industry-standard BPEL 2.0 (Business Process Execution Language) • BPEL can provide top-down, process oriented approach for orchestrating mainframe Web services • Processing intensive BPEL runs within zAAP • Lower TCO - not counted against GPP • Improved performance - not speed restricted • Run BPEL workflows composed of platform independent, heterogeneous Web services, with better performance and lower cost
    • BPEL Tools for Orchestrating Web Services with BPEL Industry Standard BPEL Workflow Drag & Drop WSDL for Orchestration
    • Benefits: zIIP/zAAP Exploitation • Improved performance • SRB’s are lighter weight dispatchable units (DUs) than TCBs • zIIPs and zAAPs are not speed restricted • 50-90% reduction in middleware GPP MSU consumption • Faster XML/SOAP processing • Faster ODBC/JDBC processing • Lower TCO • Workloads running on zIIP or zAAP not counted against GPP • MSU consumption of middleware will be lower • Lowers total software cost based on MSU consumption • Total Mainframe MSU usage will be lower • Lowers total software cost based on MSU consumption
    • Lowering Mainframe TCO with Shadow – zIIP Savings v. Upgrade Deferral Total MSU Current Savings Utilization Year 1 Year 2 Year 3 Year 4 Year 5 80.0% 96.0% 115.2% 138.3% 165.9% 199.1% 14% 68.6% 82.3% 98.8% 118.5% 142.2% 170.7% 30% 55.9% 67.0% 80.5% 96.5% 115.9% 139.0% 40% 47.9% 57.5% 69.0% 82.8% 99.3% 119.2% 51% 39.0% 46.8% 56.2% 67.4% 80.9% 97.1% • For large data-centric workloads • 30% savings with Shadow & 50% workload saves 15% total MSU consumption • For small Web services workloads • 90% savings with Shadow & 20% workload saves 18% total MSU consumption • For large Web services workloads • 90% savings with Shadow & 40% workload saves 36% total MSU consumption 20 % ACGR in MSU Consumption (sited by IBM as average rate)
