Bring mainframe workloads into enterprise processes
Integrate mainframe batch processing into enterprise workflows
Reduce mainframe operating costs by moving scheduling to Tidal
Apply advanced scheduling functionality to zLinux jobs
With Tidal’s zLinux integration, mainframe job scheduling can be orchestrated within overall business processes for end-to-end management and automation – no scripting required. When you offload scheduling from the mainframe, you can reduce your mainframe operating costs.
The zLinux agent is installed on the mainframe and serves as a delegate of the Tidal Master to perform tasks. The agent:
Using agent lists, you can assign a group of machines to handle a workload. It’s easy to do dynamic load balancing by increasing or decreasing the number of machines doing work. The result – improved resource management and reduced costs.
