IBM Mainframe Migration

Put an end to high runtime license cost and IBM dependency

Native Technologies / No Emulation
The Asysco mainframe migration solution takes any application developed on IBM technology as well as underlying storage. It automatically converts these into a fully identical application, but designed to run within an alternative environment on open systems. The new application eliminates legacy constructs and uses modern and industry-standard technologies such as C#.NET, Java, relational databases, PowerShell, Python, etc..

This allows flexible application integration and extension.

Benchmark proves outstanding performance

Back in 2012, HP conducted a series of performance benchmarks to compare the performance of an IBM mainframe with a number of different x86 based platforms using a benchmark application called zRef (COBOL/CICS application designed for an IBM mainframe running z/OS).
The results of that benchmark are described in a whitepaper: 4AA4-2452ENW, August 2013, REV. 1.

Recently Asysco reran this benchmark using Asysco’s AMT framework in Azure. Where previous tests already showed impressive results, running the benchmark on a single M128 VM in Azure resulted in a very impressive 18,500 MIPS equivalent but running the same benchmark in a distributed Azure configuration (i.e. only the database running on the M128 VM and the transaction servers running on other virtual machines) resulted in a groundbreaking 28,666 MIPS equivalent and the Azure advanced networking allows extreme scalability with little or no loss of performance.

The benchmark tests have shown that using the zRef benchmark application, AMT provides both the lowest cost as well as the highest performing mainframe alternative infrastructure where the Cloud truly is the new mainframe.

Automated IBM Mainframe Migration of entire mainframe ecosystem

Through our automated framework, Asysco migrates the entire mainframe ecosystem: code, batch, security, operations management, and so on and delivers a tested, functionally unchanged, and complete ecosystem back to our customers. Better yet, the target system has the same or better quality of service (performance, availability, scalability, resilience, manageability, ..) and is as maintainable and manageable as the original mainframe environment.

After migration, all code is maintained using standard development tools on the chosen platform to further facilitate application integration and modernization. Seeing is believing, before and after code samples are available on request.
