This Quick Start automatically deploys Micro Focus Enterprise Server into a new or existing virtual private cloud (VPC) on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud in about 1 hour and 15 minutes. The Quick Start includes an optional BankDemo demonstration application for testing the deployment.

Micro Focus Enterprise Server is an application deployment environment for IBM mainframe applications that have been running on the IBM z/OS operating system. Enterprise Server enables you to modernize and integrate your mainframe applications with technologies such as .NET and Java. It provides flexible mainframe application deployment—across Linux and Microsoft Windows—on AWS.

The Quick Start is intended for:

  • System integrators and Micro Focus customers who have deployed an IBM mainframe workload to Enterprise Server on premises, and want to migrate rehosted applications to AWS.
  • Those who want to explore the feasibility of moving an IBM mainframe workload to AWS, with a production server for running mainframe applications.
