Quickly Synchronize Mainframe Data on Cloud and Open Systems with tcVISION from Treehouse Software

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


Are you looking for a solution that allows your legacy mainframe environment to continue while replicating data – in real time – on a variety of newer Cloud and Open Systems platforms? With a “data-first” approach, Treehouse Software’s tcVISION allows immediate Change Data Capture (CDC) between a variety of Mainframe sources and the Cloud and Open Systems, enabling customers to use the product to extract business value while maintaining critical legacy data by replicating data between their mainframes and the Cloud and Open Systems.

Whether your enterprise wants to take advantage of the latest Cloud services, such as analytics, artificial intelligence (AI), scalable storage, security, high availability, etc., or move your data to a variety of newer databases, the transition doesn’t have to be a sudden big bang. tcVISION allows real-time data synchronization of changes on either platform to be reflected on the other platform (e.g., a change to a PostgreSQL table is reflected back on mainframe). The customer can then modernize their application on the Cloud, Open Systems, etc. without disrupting the existing critical work on the legacy system. 

Where do you want to go?

Much of an enterprise’s mission critical mainframe data is stored in legacy mainframe databases, and the cost to maintain these databases is high. An added complication is that the data is utilized by many interlinked and dependent programs that have been in place for many years, and sometimes, decades. Unlocking the value of this legacy data is difficult due to many very different types of mainframe databases. With Treehouse Software’s tcVISION, mainframe data can be replicated between IBM Db2 z/OS, Db2 z/VSE, Adabas, VSAM, IMS/DB, CA IDMS, CA DATACOM, or sequential files, and many Cloud and Open Systems targets, including AWS, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud, Kafka, PostgreSQL, Snowflake, etc.

tcVISION supports a vast array of integration scenarios throughout the enterprise, providing easy and fast data migration for mainframe application modernization projects and enabling data replication between mainframe, Cloud, Linux, Unix, and Windows platforms. This innovative technology offers comprehensive abilities to identify and capture changes occurring in mainframe and relational databases, then publish the required information to an impressive variety of targets, both on-premise and Cloud-based. A complete list of tcVISION supported environments for data replication can be seen here.
