tableBASE In-Memory Processing


Maximizing mainframe performance

Maximizing mainframe system performance is an ongoing process, and amounts to a full-time job both for IT organizations running mainframe systems and for IBM. The z/OS operating system and the venerable Db2 database form the backbone of the most important IT assets possessed by almost all of the biggest banks, financial institutions, insurers, government departments and retailers in the world. These systems are not going anywhere—they are not being replaced, and they are not being phased out. However, they are continually being improved upon. IBM periodically releases new versions of z/OS and Db2 that result in better performance. Most of its biggest customers also invest in best-in-class in-memory technology—tableBASE—which augments most of the improvements that IBM makes.
