mainstorconcept mzHOST
SummarymzHost is a product under license from mainstorconcept





mzHost expands the functionality of your IBM z/OS mainframe by adding a simple, secure, bidirectional communication to other IT systems.

With the help of mzHost you can execute commands on remote systems directly from the z/OS system environment (console) and then process the output in z/OS.
Alternatively you can receive information from an external system per PUSH in the console.
Vice-versa mzHost acts as a Server Task in z/OS and allows RACF authorized commands to be executed from a Linux or Windows client.


mzHOST from mainstorconcept is a communication module which can be run in any Java capable environment.
The execution of mzHost in the JVM allows the user to access its functions even if a disaster case occurs.
The Java platform allows for a great portability of the software und thus enables a flexible system design.
The integrated SSL encryption and the login procedure enable a secure communication between the server and the clients.
By customizing the socket (TCP Port) you're truly independant from any services like SSH and HTTP, this way you can integrate the mzHost protocoll in your security and firewall infrastructure.
Through the high interoperability with external operating system components you can achieve a great level of integration with current programs and scripts, improve processes and at the same time keep proven workflows and just expand the functionality by adding new features.
