Rocket® Performance Essential

Reduce processing time for zSystems with automated batch I/O optimization

Optimize batch I/O to alleviate pressure from data volume, SLA constraints and sub-capacity license agreements

Reduce Batch I/Os by 90%

Significantly improve batch processing performance with improved I/O efficiency. You can automatically reduce I/Os by up to 90% within hours of installing Performance Essential — no manual performance tuning required.

Protect sub-capacity license agreements

Avoid exceeding sub-capacity licensing. Optimize batch I/O automatically to cut batch job resource consumption and shorten the time for jobs to complete, without manual intervention from your mainframe performance team.

Improve IBM zSystems performance

Batch windows are in the critical path of business continuity, digital transformation, application modernization, and other strategic initiatives. Mainframe batch windows are under pressure from growing data volume, while processing time is constrained by SLAs or by sub-capacity license agreements.

With Rocket® Performance Essential, batch processing times and resource consumption can be cut by 50-75% without manual performance tuning. Your mainframe environment operates more efficiently, with batch I/O that is optimized automatically. Performance Essential helps lower your mainframe system overhead without modifying applications and improve data center and end-user productivity and frees your mainframe performance team to focus on other tasks and extend the life of critical applications.

Performance Essential optimizes batch jobs for both VSAM and non-VSAM data sets, often resulting in significant resource and time savings. It optimizes buffer allocations automatically and dynamically, enabling you to reduce EXCP counts by up to 90% without the need to analyze data access definitions and application usage patterns manually. This helps reduce processing time by up to 75%, without putting additional burden on your mainframe performance team.

With Performance Essential, your IT staff and mainframe resources will be free to focus on growth-based initiatives.
