IBM MQ v8 enhancements

  1. 1. © 2014 IBM Corporation Messaging across IT: IBM MQ V8 enhancements Leif Davidsen – Senior Product Manager, IBM Messaging IBM Hursley Park @LeifDavidsen
  2. 2. © 2014 IBM Corporation The need for connectivity is growing • Connectivity in business infrastructure is increasing – More information, more systems, more services, deployed anywhere • New sources of data are changing the world – However data without connectivity becomes a burden not an asset • Connect systems together – Deliver timely updates of targeted data – Gain business insight – Applications and data change from growing costs to valuable assets2
  3. 3. © 2014 IBM Corporation The challenge of using data to grow value • Multiple data sources write massive amounts of information into storage – Challenge of useful off-line analysis grows by the second once the data is committed to disk • Extracting value from customer or transaction data is greatest as it is created – Realize the greatest value by moving the data to where it can be consumed – Movement must be rapid, reliable and secure to protect the integrity and security of the data – Every second more data is being created – it becomes even more urgent to move it to where it can provide value 3
  4. 4. © 2014 IBM Corporation Moving data – where does it need to go? • Systems are dynamic – new applications, new sources of data, new consumers of data – The challenge of delivering data to meet changing demands needs a flexible infrastructure • Roll-your own code in the applications – Increases cost, time and complexity, but can deliver the code where you need it • Storing the data in a database or file – Creates a permanent record, but does nothing to provide timely analysis • A messaging infrastructure can meet both needs – Keeps the application simple and able to adapt to change – Can deliver filtered information to consuming applications, and also deliver to a permanent information store 4
  5. 5. © 2014 IBM Corporation Why Messaging is still important…do these sound familiar? •Failures still happen - application and network – cloud and mobile especially •Don’t try to handle these failures in your business application logic – •Moves any type of data and any type of system, device or environment, with a common shared API •Configurable: Persistence, Performance, Management, Security, etc. “business transactions must happen only once” “adding new services or applications is unpredictable” “change is relentless” “need to adopt new industry standards” “must become more agile” “losing data costs time money and reputation” “business insight is key in today’s market” “consumer interaction is forcing us to respond faster” “we need to become more event driven” Here is why messaging is important… “our applications are getting too complex”“we need to recover from IT failures better” 5
  6. 6. © 2014 IBM Corporation IBM Messaging – Market segments Deliver Messaging Backbone for Enterprise Focus on traditional MQ values, rock-solid enterprise-class service, ease-of-operation, breadth of platform coverage, availability, z/OS exploitation Capture Big Data from Mobile and Internet of Things Focus on Internet-scale events, m2m device enablement, zero-admin, security and privacy, feed into real-time analytics, location-based notifications Enable Developers to build more scalable, responsive applications Focus on new app dev use cases, breadth of languages, ease-of- deployment, lightweight services, integration with developer frameworks 6

  15. 15. © 2014 IBM Corporation MQ Client Attachment Feature • MQ CAF is an additional charge applied to customer systems which connect MQ Clients on non z/OS platforms to MQ for z/OS – MLC charge, based on a percentage cost of their MQ MLC cost. • Chargeable features like MQ CAF distort MQ architecture and use-cases – Drove customers to connect via intermediary Queue Managers, thus putting in layers between the MQ for z system and the application user – Deploying new applications on z/OS that benefitted from Client Connectivity needed additional justification MQ Client connectivity MQ Client connectivity MQ Client connectivity MQ Client connectivity MQ Server connectivity MQ for z/OS No CAF charged MQ for z/OS CAF needed • No CAF in WMQ for z/OS V7.1 VUE – Encouraged new workloads • New in V8, and for V7 of MQ for z/OS – No CAF in V8 – not needed for client connectivity to encourage new workloads on z/OS – CAF can be removed from V7 deployments by applying a PTF – Price of CAF for V7 set to $0 on 1st June 2014, to remove the need to apply PTFs15
  16. 16. © 2014 IBM Corporation What makes IBM MQ Advanced different? • IBM MQ Advanced is a part that provides entitlement to IBM MQ Server, Managed File Transfer service, Advanced Message Security, and Telemetry: – Buy a single part at a single price (per PVU) for all the distributed server capabilities. – Buying 1000PVUs of IBM MQ Advanced, gets entitlement to 1000 PVUs of each of the 3 capabilities: base server, MFT service, and AMS, plus the option to connect unlimited Telemetry clients to the IBM MQ Servers. • IBM MQ Advanced makes it easier for clients to buy and deploy all the IBM MQ distributed server capabilities they need within a single purchase. – IBM MQ Advanced for Developers is also available specifically for development use only Important points to note: – Customers can also extend their network by purchasing Managed File Transfer agents to deploy on non-server entitled machines. – To access the full capabilities of IBM MQ Advanced, deployment must use v7.5 or above. – It is still possible to purchase individual MQ capabilities where a customer needs to be more specific about their system requirements. – System availability can be improved with additional Idle-Standby parts. IBM MQ Advanced MQ AMS TelemetryMFT Service 16
  17. 17. © 2014 IBM Corporation IBM MQ system Channels Application B Where does Advanced Message Security fit in? Application A  IBM MQ has many built in security features including: – Control over administration commands (e.g. strmqm for starting a queue manager). – Fine grained control over access to resources (e.g. queues). – Secure communications (e.g. SSL and access controls). – Extensible architecture which can be customised to meet the demands of an individual business.  When the privacy of sensitive data must be guaranteed, businesses use IBM MQ Advanced Message Security (AMS), a chargeable component for IBM MQ, or included in MQ Advanced.  The data is encrypted from the point it leaves the sending application to the point it enters the receiving application.  The encryption is controlled by policies on the queue manager so no changes are required to existing applications.17
  18. 18. © 2014 IBM Corporation Where does Telemetry fit in? • When a business needs real-time access for enterprise applications to connect to a range of mobile devices, remote sensors, actuators and other telemetry devices, they use Telemetry, a chargeable component of IBM MQ. • IBM MQ Telemetry includes the following key components: – The Telemetry service that runs on the IBM MQ server – MQ Telemetry clients that are distributed to remote devices and applications • Telemetry uses the MQTT protocol to send and receive messages between devices or applications and the MQ queue manager. • From the MQ queue manager, the messages can be exchanged with other messaging applications. Application BApplication A Enterprise Medical Device Vehicle Oil Rig Smart Phone Sensor (e.g. RFID) Telemetry client Telemetry service 18
  19. 19. © 2014 IBM Corporation Where does Managed File Transfer fit in?  When businesses need to configure, track, and audit file transfer activity in a consistent way, they use Managed File Transfer (MFT), available as two separate chargeable components of IBM MQ (MFT Service and MFT Agent) as the WebSphere MFT offering. MFT Service entitlement is included in MQ Advanced.  An MFT Agent performs the fundamental file transfer function of sending and receiving files from the local system. – When requested to send a file, an agent reads the file’s contents and sends it to the destination agent over IBM MQ channels in the form of one or more MQ messages. – An optional logging component stores the contents of file transfer log messages.  MFT Service installs a file transfer agent on a MQ server with additional capabilities: – Protocol bridge agents which are used to send and receive files with legacy FTP, FTPS, or SFTP servers. – MQ MFT supports file-to-file movement, but also file-to-message, and message-to-file – These offer unique ways to exploit the valuable data held in files  An MQ Explorer integrated GUI or command-line is used to configure and administer MFT.  IBM Sterling Control Center is included to provide additional monitoring of file transfers MFT Agent MFT Agent Application BApplication A Logging component Channels MQ network 19
