Velocity Software, Inc. is recognized as a leader in the performance measurement of z/VM and Linux on z. The Velocity Performance Suite consist of a set of tools that enable installations running z/VM to manage Linux and z/VM performance. In addition, many components of server farms can be measured and analyzed. Performance data can be viewed real-time through the use of either 3270 or a browser. The CLOUD Implementation (zPRO) component is designed for full cloud PaaS implementation as well as to extend the capabilities of the z/VM sysprog (system programmer) to the browser world. This feature moves system management to the point-and-click crowd. Archived data and reports can be kept available of long term review and reporting usine zMAP. The zVPS, formally ESALPS, components consist of: zMON (formally ESAMON - real-time display of performance data), zTCP (formally ESATCP - SNMP data collection), zMAP (formally ESAMAP - historical reporting and archiving), zVWS (formally ESAWEB - z/VM based web server), zTUNE (a subscription service), zVIEW (formally SHOWCASE - web based viewing of performance data), zPRO (new to the quality line of Velocity Software Products). Velocity continues to work with other software vendors to ensure smooth interface with or from other products such as VM:Webgateway, CA-Webgateway, EnterpriseWeb, MXG, MICS. Velocity software remains the leader and inovator in the z/VM performance, Linux performance, Managing cloud computing arenas.

Fast and easy to use Cloud Management for z/VM and Linux on Z


Our industry is facing one of the biggest challenges that we have had to overcome in the last 50 years: our experts and experienced system programmers and mainframe staff are either retiring or close to retirement age. If you are seeing the same trend in your organization, zPRO is just the right solution for you. If "mainframe modernization" is a phrase used by your management, zPRO is just the right solution for you.

zPRO Focuses on Three Main Cornerstones:

  1. Simplifying access and acceptance of the mainframe for younger and less skilled team members through browser-based interface (no 3270 needed)
  2. Providing a cloud-based facility for mainframe training
  3. Simplifying daily tasks by empowering end-users to manage their own systems while still controlling their "abilities" or authorities

zPRO greatly simplifies the provisioning and management of Linux on Z. It enables installations running the IBM z/VM platform to create their own private PaaS (Platform as a Service) environment. Traditionally the mainframe has carried a stigma of being a "legacy" platform. This leaves many IT organizations wary of the platform, a platform that is the backbone of the majority of government agencies, most financial and insurance organizations and many educational institutions.

zPRO's modern, simple and intuitive browser-based interface allows installations to take advantage of the strengths of the mainframe without requiring any understanding of the underlying platform. zPRO also offers huge benefits to enterprises that have knowledgeable mainframe systems programmers by condensing complex tasks into simple "point and click" operations and providing the ability to empower end-users to manage their own systems. This frees up time for the systems programmer to focus on other important work or issues while zPRO is handling tasks in the background. zPRO has a collection of robust features that are continually growing because of the input and expectations of the Linux on Z community.

zPRO Product Benefits

zPRO: Keep It Simple!

One of the benefits of the z/VM platform over the last 40 years has been the simplicity of the platform. Complex solutions fail because of too many moving parts, too many APIs and overhead. zPRO eliminates complexity:

Demonstration Site!

Velocity Software maintains a cloud for demonstration purposes and for supporting your education needs. If there is a need to access a mainframe for education purposes, this is offered by Velocity Software at "zPRO DEMO" (use the ID of DEMOZPRO and password DEMODEMO to acquire your own demo User ID)

There is also education provided for hands-on users at "VelocitySoftware.com/Educate" allowing a self-study education path for students finding it difficult to access a mainframe platform free of charge....
