HostBridge Redis for z/OS

IBM z Systems Data for Mobile, Analytics, and Cloud

HostBridge® Redis for z/OS® brings a new NoSQL data store to the IBM z Systems™ platform for the first time. Built on the Redis 3.0 code base – the same technology powering many of today’s ultra-scalable cloud and mobile apps – HostBridge Redis will enable IBM z Systems customers to put their high-value data to work in analytics, and mobile and cloud architectures – and improve returns on their z Systems and CICS® investments.

HostBridge Redis is designed to be implemented as a modernizing extension of traditional database systems, including DB2®, VSAM™, Datacom®, and others. By shifting portions of data workloads to HostBridge Redis, customers will gain significantly greater performance, scalability, and interoperability; add value to their existing data systems; and reduce the cost of processing these workloads.
