Video Demo: Mainframe Data Replication on AWS with tcVISION from Treehouse Software

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


Whether your enterprise wants to take advantage of the latest AWS services, such as analytics, artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning, scalable storage, security, high availability, etc., or move your data to a variety of newer databases, the transition doesn’t have to occur immediately. 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 the mainframe source database). The customer can then modernize their application on AWS without disrupting the existing critical work on the legacy system. 

tcVISION on AWS architecture overview:


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

The following video shows the steps required to create the tcVISION metadata and scripts for replicating mainframe Db2 z/OS data to AWS PostgreSQL:

Where do you want to go?

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.

tcVISION is an innovative technology that 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.

This will be a live, on-line demonstration that shows tcVISION replicating data from the mainframe to a Cloud or Open Systems target.

Quickly Begin Replicating Mainframe Data on Cloud and Open Systems During a tcVISION Proof of Concept.

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


Customers can start moving mainframe data within days during a tcVISION POC…

An online tcVISION Proof of Concept (POC) is approximately 10 business days, with the customer providing a representative subset of data, use cases, and goals for the POC. A Treehouse Software consultant will assist in downloading and installing tcVISION, and conduct a limited-scope implementation of a tcVISION application. This application uses customer data and executes on customer facilities, in a non-production environment. A document is provided beforehand that outlines the requirements and agenda for the POC.

By the end of the POC, customers can begin replicating mainframe data to their Cloud or Open Systems target database.  It can happen that fast!.

About tcVISION

More Cloud, Open Systems, and Systems Integration partners are recommending tcVISION, Treehouse Software’s Mainframe-to-Cloud data replication product for modernization projects. tcVISION focuses on changed data capture (CDC) when transferring information between mainframe data sources and Cloud and Open System 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 RDBMS and other targets.
