Treehouse Software White Paper: Mainframe-to-Hybrid Cloud – The “Data First” Approach

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

Planning01

Data First Approach to Mainframe Modernization

This white paper serves as a guide for organizations planning to replicate their mainframe data on a Cloud platform. 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.

Many organizations are now looking for modernization solutions that allow their legacy mainframe environments to continue, while replicating data in real time on highly available Cloud-based platforms. With a “data-first” approach, immediate data replication to the Cloud is enabling government, healthcare, supply chain, financial, and a variety of public service organizations to meet spikes in demand for vital information, especially in times of crisis.

Shopping for an AWS Mainframe Data Replication Solution? Look no further than Treehouse Software’s tcVISION on the AWS Marketplace…

___AWS_Marketplace_tcVISION_AMIs

Using Treehouse Software’s tcVISION to replicate data between a mainframe database and AWS, an enterprise with mission critical data can rapidly deploy databases globally within minutes, and with minimal administration requirements. Supported mainframe databases include Db2, VSAM, IMS/DB, Adabas, IDMS, Datacom, or even sequential files. tcVISION is available on the AWS Marketplace for many global regions, including the AWS GovCloud (US) East and (US) West. 

There are three versions of the tcVISION Amazon Machine Image (AMI) on the AWS Marketplace:

1. tcVISION Enterprise Change Data Capture (CDC) Integration for AWS – Bring Your Own License (Customers must contact Treehouse Software for license key to run the software): This AMI allows transfer of mainframe data to AWS targets continuously and in real-time. Using this tcVISION AMI, a customer can deploy databases globally within minutes.

3. tcVISION Distributed Database Integration (DDI) for AWS – Pay as You Go on AWS: This AMI license installation includes security keys for Amazon S3 access and a license to use one source (PostgreSQL, Oracle, MySQL, MariaDB; MSSQL on Windows OS only) and one target (AWS S3, AWS Aurora, RDS – PostgreSQL, Oracle, MySQL, MariaDB; MSSQL on Windows OS only).

3. tcVISION Mainframe Batch Integration (MBI) for AWS – Bring Your Own License (Customers must contact Treehouse Software for license key to run the software): This AMI does not require an active connection to the mainframe, because the existing backup and recovery files from the mainframe, such as Db2 imagecopies, z/OS archive log files or IMS Unloads, Adabas unload, and PLOG files can be used.

Like what you see? Replicating mainframe data on AWS can happen within days during a tcVISION Proof of Concept (POC)…

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

By the end of the 10-day POC, customers can begin replicating mainframe data to their Cloud target database.  It can happen that fast!

Don’t Jump in the Lake Without Treehouse Software! We Can Help Your Enterprise Safely Move Large Volumes of Mainframe Data to Centralized, Scalable, Cloud-Based Repositories

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

___JumpInTheLake

Many enterprises have relied on traditional data infrastructures for decades, but older data solutions can’t keep up with the volume and variety of data being collected today. This blog takes a look at building a data lake on Amazon Web Services (AWS), which allows you to store all of your data in one central repository.

What is a Data Lake?

A data lake is a centralized repository for storing structured and unstructured data at any scale. A customer can store data as-is, without having to first structure the data, and run different types of analytics—from dashboards and visualizations to big data processing, real-time analytics, and machine learning to guide better decisions.

___AWS_Data_Lake

Depending on the requirements, a typical organization will require both a data warehouse and a data lake as they serve different needs, and use cases.

A data warehouse is a database optimized to analyze relational data coming from transactional systems and line of business applications. The data structure, and schema are defined in advance to optimize for fast SQL queries, where the results are typically used for operational reporting and analysis. Data is cleaned, enriched, and transformed so it can act as the “single source of truth” that users can trust.

A data lake is different, because it stores relational data from line of business applications, and non-relational data from mobile apps, IoT devices, and social media. The structure of the data or schema is not defined when data is captured. This means you can store all of your data without careful design or the need to know what questions you might need answers for in the future. Different types of analytics on your data like SQL queries, big data analytics, full text search, real-time analytics, and machine learning can be used to uncover insights.

As organizations with data warehouses see the benefits of data lakes, they are evolving their warehouses to include data lakes, and enable diverse query capabilities, data science use-cases, and advanced capabilities for discovering new information models. Gartner names this evolution the “Data Management Solution for Analytics” or “DMSA.”

Data lakes built on Amazon S3 provide the foundation for analytics and innovation, and AWS Partner Network (APN) Partners have demonstrated success in helping enterprises evaluate and use the tools and best practices for collecting, storing, governing, and analyzing data.

Key data lake-enabling features of Amazon S3 include the following:

  • Decoupling of storage from compute and data processing – With Amazon S3, you can cost-effectively store all data types in their native formats. You can then launch as many or as few virtual servers as you need using Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), and you can use AWS analytics tools to process your data. You can optimize your EC2 instances to provide the right ratios of CPU, memory, and bandwidth for best performance.
  • Centralized data architecture – Amazon S3 makes it easy to build a multi-tenant environment, where many users can bring their own data analytics tools to a common set of data. This improves both cost and data governance over that of traditional solutions, which require multiple copies of data to be distributed across multiple processing platforms.
  • Integration with clusterless and serverless AWS services – Use Amazon S3 with Amazon Athena, Amazon Redshift Spectrum, Amazon Rekognition, and AWS Glue to query and process data. Amazon S3 also integrates with AWS Lambda serverless computing to run code without provisioning or managing servers. With all of these capabilities, you only pay for the actual amounts of data you process or for the compute time that you consume.
  • Standardized APIs – Amazon S3 RESTful APIs are simple, easy to use, and supported by most major third-party independent software vendors (ISVs), including leading Apache Hadoop and analytics tool vendors. This allows customers to bring the tools they are most comfortable with and knowledgeable about to help them perform analytics on data in Amazon S3.

Getting to the Lake: Mainframe-to-AWS Data Replication with tcVISION…

An enterprise’s long-standing mainframe data can be residing on one, or a combination of  databases, including IBM Db2, IBM VSAM, IBM IMS/DB, Software AG Adabas, CA IDMS, CA Datacom, or even sequential files.  Treehouse Software’s tcVISION writes .csv or JSON to AWS S3, providing an optimal foundation for a data lake, because of its virtually unlimited scalability.

Here is a look at three options for data replication with tcVISION:

1. tcVISION Bulk Load of Mainframe Data – Initial load of the database where tables can be loaded as a parallel operation in one or more EC2 instances. tcVISION reads the database from the mainframe directly, and can FTP or use S3 to migrate unloads directly to the EC2 instance.

___tcVISION_AWS_Bulk_Load

2. tcVISION Enterprise Change Data Capture (CDC) Integration – A multiple platform solution for real-time, continuous data synchronization and replication based on log-based Change Data Capture technology and mainframe batch integration. It turns data exchange into a single-step operation as it includes a powerful repository for data transparency, data transformation, and apply processing logic for the targets. Transfer mainframe data to your AWS targets continuously and in real-time for Big Data, Analytics, Business Intelligence, ERP, CRM, or for application modernization or mainframe offload initiatives or mainframe migration.

___tcVISION_AWS_CDC

3. tcVISION Bi-directional Data ReplicationtcVISION allows bi-directional, 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.

___tcVISION_AWS_BiDirect

The tcVISION solution focuses on CDC when transferring information between mainframe data sources and Cloud 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 Cloud targets.
