zHyperLink: The Holy Grail of Mainframe I/O?
With the z14 processor, IBM introduced zHyperLink, a new way to connect processors and storage that provides very low latency I/O operations. This new technology comes with a set of promises and restrictions that will cause you to rethink the design of your storage and replication infrastructure. The days of distance limitations are back, which has big implications for synchronous replication, in particular. zHyperLink I/O is synchronous I/O, which means that the processor will wait (spin) until the I/O operation is complete.
Attendees of this session will gain an understanding of the potential benefits and implications of this revolutionary change to mainframe I/O, as well as some insights as to how it may evolve with future advances in technology, helping them to determine how zHyperLink fits into the roadmap for their environments.
This webinar will demonstrate:
- Potential benefits of zHyperLink
- Connectivity & replication implications
- Insights into how zHyperLink may evolve with future technology
- How to determine how zHyperLink fits into your environment
