The Proxy Coupling Technology solution offloads CPU resources to lower-cost hardware and software, reducing your Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) without sacrificing Reliability, Availability and Serviceability (RAS), extending the value of the z System Mainframe for your business.
PSCsort™ transparently offloads z System MSU demand for data sorting from General Purpose Processors (GPP) to the Integrated Facility for Linux (IFL) or Distributed Systems CPUs (x86, POWER, SPARC, etc.) to help introduce the benefits of Proxy Coupling Technology.
The Proxy Coupling Facility (proxCF™) builds upon and incorporates PSCsort™ into a generalized environment for monitoring, managing and transparently offloading the GPP MSUs for many other mainframe applications to a customer-specified Distributed System or IFL.
Proxy Coupling Technology reduces cost without sacrificing the performance and reliability of the Mainframe.
Offloading tasks from the Mainframe to Linux can make the overall solution much more economical from a cost/performance perspective.
Our solution provides totally seamless and transparent interoperability where various tasks can be easily migrated between computing systems as if hosted on the same system.
