Cloud providers are aware that most large enterprises use mainframe systems housing vast amounts of data encompassing historical, customer, logistics, etc., and they are helping us bring our tcVISION Mainframe-to-Cloud data replication and migration solution to the Cloud marketplace. Sales leaders within various verticals at Cloud companies and systems integrators are also engaging with Treehouse Software to take advantage of our unique skills and solution to help them tap into this potential goldmine of data that needs to be moved to the Cloud.

With tcVISION, customers can replicate mission critical data to the Cloud, and immediately take advantage of the broadest and deepest set of capabilities, including artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning, Internet of things (IoT), predictive data analytics, high performance and security, high availability across global regions, scalability, and innovation. Imagine being able to spin up a functional and secure databases anywhere in the world — in minutes! Also imagine having the most advanced technologies available for data processing, interactive analytics, real-time analytics, operational analytics, dashboards, and data warehousing at your fingertips!

Where is your mission critical data residing?

Most larger industry verticals recognize the need to tie together many disparate data sources within their IT environment, including their long-standing mainframe data.  Treehouse Software’s tcVISION solution focuses on changed data capture (CDC) when transferring information between mainframe data sources and target databases and applications. Through an innovative technology, changes occurring in any mainframe application data are tracked and captured, and then published to a variety of targets. tcVISION provides the means for customers to easily replicate relevant data from most mainframe data sources (IBM Db2, IBM VSAM, IBM IMS/DB, Software AG Adabas, CA IDMS, CA Datacom, or even sequential files) to Cloud targets, including AWS, Microsoft Azure, Oracle Cloud, as well as many more seen here…

tcVISION’s Control Board is a Windows Graphical User Interface (GUI) that allows users to configure the replication stream between the mainframe and various Cloud platforms. Using the Control Board and built-in wizards, users can define the metadata and mappings between the mainframe and a Cloud database target.

tcVISION automatically defines the mappings between the source and target. tcVISION’s Metadata Import Wizard creates a default mapping that handles data type conversion issues, such as EBCDIC to ASCII, Endianness conversion, codepages, redefines datatypes, and more. See mapping example below:

CDC replication is initiated from the tcVISION Control Board, and the mainframe communicates to the Cloud-based tcVISION replication manager. The tcVISION Control Board shows a graphical representation of the replication, seen in the example below:

The digital transformation happening in the automotive industry is resonating throughout all divisions, products, and services, with many manufacturers looking for ways to benefit from the vast amounts of data stored on multiple mainframe systems. This extremely valuable data encompasses information on customers, warranties, parts, service, logistics, and much more, so moving it to the Cloud for access by the latest and most powerful analytics and artificial intelligence (AI) services has become a strategic imperative.

Using the most advanced Cloud technologies, companies can unlock actionable insights to help build customer relationships, enable the most immersive and undistracted driving experience possible, and improve global manufacturing and supply chain operational efficiency.

This blog takes a look at how Treehouse Software’s mature and automated mainframe data replication product, tcVISION can help automotive companies move data quickly to Amazon Web Services (AWS). Treehouse Software stands ready to show companies how they can tap into decades worth of valuable data by using tcVISION and our deep mainframe knowledge and experience.

When a company uses tcVISION to replicate mission critical data to the AWS Cloud, they can immediately take advantage of the broadest and deepest set of capabilities, including:

  • AI/ML, IoT, HPC, and predictive data analytics
  • The highest performance and security
  • The largest customer and partner community
  • High availability across global regions
  • Scalability   
  • A relentless pace of innovation

AWS for Automotive…

With AWS, a Data Lake can be easily built and tailored, allowing companies to securely store, categorize, and analyze all of their replicated mainframe data in one, centralized repository. Additionally, companies can access the most comprehensive and advanced set of Industrial IoT, Data Lake, analytics, and machine learning solutions available to connect and manage machines and systems across the global supply chain and generate actionable insights with real-time and predictive analytics capabilities to improve quality and operational efficiency while reducing downtime and cost.

Treehouse Software helps Mainframe Customers Move Data to the World’s Fastest Cloud Data Warehouse — Amazon Redshift

by Joseph Brady, Director of Business Development / AWS and Cloud Alliance Lead at Treehouse Software, Inc.

Treehouse Software is an AWS Technology Partner, and has been a mainframe software company since 1982, and in the data replication and migration market space since the mid-1990s. Today, Treehouse Software is helping enterprise mainframe customers successfully move their data to the Cloud in order to utilize all of the most advanced Cloud services and tools available. Our tcVISION product can help customers replicate their mainframe data, in real-time and bi-directionally, between a vast array of source databases and many AWS Cloud technologies, including Amazon Redshift, the world’s fastest cloud data warehouse today.

Highly concurrent workloads? Not a problem. Redshift can handle virtually unlimited concurrency. Amazon Redshift’s hybrid architecture enables unmatched performance…

___AWS_RedShift_Architecture

Shared storage provides the ability to scale to unlimited concurrency, while Redshift’s on-instance storage provides low latency access to data that can’t be achieved any other way. The unique combination of both strategies provides Redshift’s best-in-class performance today and leaves room for continued performance improvements tomorrow.

Scale quickly and automatically to handle unpredictable workloads…

Start small at $0.25 per hour and scale up to terabytes or petabytes for under $1,000 per terabyte per year. Pay only for what you use and know how much you’ll spend with predictable monthly costs. That’s 75% less expensive than the #2 cloud data warehouse provider.
