vStorm Enterprise

The best way to copy enterprise data to big data

Overview

Veristorm’s vStorm Enterprise software brings near-real-time access to z/OS data so you can break mainframe quarantine and integrate your data across your IT infrastructure. With fast, self-service access to data, data analysts can bypass Extract, Transform, Load (ETL) in favor of Extract, Load, and Transform-in-Hadoop (EL-TH).

 

Point-and-Click Easy

Convert and copy data and metadata without programming. VSAM, QSAM, COBOL and PL/1 copybook parsing are fully automated.

 

Integrated Governance

Rest easy with support for leading mainframe security and batch scheduling systems, and robust data encryption.

 

Fast and Affordable

4X faster. 10% the MIPS cost. Our patent-pending in-flight technology has no staging and no MIPS for data conversion.

Efficient and Flexible Architecture

vStorm Enterprise runs on Linux for maximum efficiency. For mainframe data sources like VSAM and QSAM, data is extracted from the mainframe in binary form and streamed to the target system.

The binary streaming technology used by vStorm Enterprise enables near-real-time access to data while eliminating staging. When compared to Apache Sqoop for DB2 and other JDBC sources, customers save MIPS and staging costs.
