How it works

The z/OS component runs on zIIP engines and delivers any data set directly to cloud storage accessible over TCP/IP, such as object storage, NAS or SAN. The data is compressed and encrypted before being sent over the network. The Model9 service running in the cloud transforms it to a standard format (such as JSON and CSV) to be easily consumed by analytics services.
