Database Trends and Applications: VirtualZ Computing Secures $2.2M in Funding to Enable Enterprise Innovation with Mainframe Data

Dec 18, 2023 | Recent news

Database Trends and Applications — a magazine covering data and information management, big data, and data science — has recognized VirtualZ for its latest round of funding.

VirtualZ’s revolutionary software solutions were also featured in the article:

“Data is always out of sync between the mainframe and applications in other environments, which creates a bottleneck for innovation and weakens security because multiple copies of critical and sensitive data are being moved around all the time.”

VirtualZ has two solutions already available, with one soon to follow:

  • Lozen™: This solution, which is available now, enables hybrid cloud, SaaS, distributed and custom applications to gain real-time, read-write access to mainframe data out of the box. Data isn’t moved; instead, all apps share the data equally as a peer with mainframe applications. The solution installs in minutes and runs on the zIIP engine, consuming a fraction of the capacity of a general processor.
  • Zaac™: This solution provides mainframe applications with real-time, read-write access to external data out of the box, including hybrid cloud, physical storage and SaaS. It provides all of the benefits of Lozen and will be available in Q1 2024.
  • PropelZ: This utility, which is also available now, makes it simple to create a copy of mainframe data whenever needed for experimentation or analysis in hybrid cloud environments. This capability enables organizations to push a one-time copy of mainframe data for just a fraction of the cost of legacy ETL solutions, and it is ideal for use cases that don’t require real-time read-write access.
