Add zEDC, z/OS Hybrid PGP & more with ZIP/390 MP
New features offload workloads and boost efficiency
With ZIP/390 Multi-Platform (MP), ZIP/390 customers have access to several new valuable features that you can start using today at no additional cost. Among these features are zEDC support &  z/OS Hybrid PGP. 

IBM zEnterprise
® Data Compression (zEDC) is a compression acceleration capability introduced with z/OS V2R1. The zEDC is similar to the zIIP engine (also supported) in that it allows customers to offload workloads without impacting MIPS or MSUs. The difference between the zIIP engine and the zEDC is that the elapsed time performance of compression is boosted up to tenfold with zEDC. The support can be an effective tool in SLA Compliance and maximizing existing mainframe white-space. The support also provides customers an opportunity to gain the benefits of compression for data that is not presently being compressed due to resource and/or time constraints.

zOS Hybrid PGP can be a practical and highly cost effective alternative to traditional Mainframe PGP solutions. A 100% zSeries Solution, z/OS Hybrid PGP leverages less costly white-space (such as IFL or zBX), offloading traditional mainframe processors.
