CDB Software expands its leadership position in providing utilities for high capacity mainframes with CDB/LOBMaster, a new product designed to meet the complex and growing challenges of Big Data in DB2 for z/OS environments.

HOUSTON, Feb. 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- CDB Software, Inc., a leading provider of high-performance solutions for DB2 z/OS data management, today announced the GA release of CDB/LOBMaster, the latest addition to its Real Time Data Management Solutions.

The proliferation of Large Objects (LOBs) continues to create significant challenges for Database Administrators (DBAs) who are tasked with maintaining an ever-growing amount of data within an increasingly cost conscious IT budget environment. Specifically designed to address the needs of DBAs, CDB/LOBMaster provides a simplified solution for efficiently managing LOBs in DB2 for z/OS. CDB/LOBMaster enhances Big Data application performance without requiring costly infrastructure upgrades.

Through innovative design and technology, CDB/LOBMaster is able to provide DBAs with the speed and ease of use necessary to meet the demands that Big Data introduces. Instead of having to run four separate utilities to maintain LOBs, LOBs are validated, corrected and reordered in a single step, all while the data remains completely available for processing. Utilizing CDB's data management technology, resources are greatly reduced by avoiding any extra processes like FLASHCOPY or SORT.

"LOBs were designed specifically to be extremely large," said Richard Barry, CDB Software's President and Chief Architect. "The challenges of DB2 data management are magnified with LOBs. Indexes can be inconsistent, there can be structural problems, the pointers can be inconsistent etc. Any of the number of LOB issues can lead to real customer data loss. CDB/LOBMaster was designed to help the DBA meet these challenges with ease."

Leading institutions throughout the world including Fortune 100 companies and large governmental agencies rely on CDB's technology to address the complex challenges of maintaining their most critical data.

"CDB/LOBMaster is further demonstration of CDB's commitment to providing our customers with the utilities they need to address the challenges of Big Data," said Anne Hoelscher, Executive Vice President, CDB Software. "Deployed in some of the world's most advanced and complex mainframe environments, our industry leading technology has been proven to reduce the time and resources necessary to manage customer data while improving mission critical application performance. As Big Data continues to grow, CDB's technology is poised to be a key enabler of our customer's successful utilization of this technology."
