If you’re a user of IBM Sterling Connect:Direct, you know you can count on it for high-volume, secure, reliable delivery of files between systems. But what you also need to know, is that you can now run your business-critical workloads on the latest z/OS hardware and software.

The new IBM z15 platform now fully supports Sterling Connect:Direct version 5.2 and above. This means you can take advantage of the new functionality and value-based pricing model for the z15, and get all the new capabilities our trusted, file transfer solution offers. In IBM testing of the z15 platform, we found that CPU time for both the sender and target were nearly cut in half for zEDC compression and z15 beat the software compression ratio of the z14. Reducing CPU time saves budget, as can the new IBM z15 pricing model. While Sterling Connect:Direct V6 delivers capabilities that make life easier for experienced users and help new users as well.
