We are excited to announce public availability of AWS Mainframe Modernization Data Replication with Precisely. The capability leverages data replication offered by Precisely to enable near real-time replication of mainframe data to the AWS Cloud with support for heterogeneous source and target databases. It builds resilient high-performance data pipelines that dynamically replicate data changes via Change Data Capture (CDC) from mainframe data stores to AWS database services like Amazon Aurora and Amazon RDS. As a result, businesses can migrate and augment mainframe applications by offloading data processing, building new business functions or channels, and driving business insights and intelligence with analytics, ML, and AI on the AWS Cloud to speed modernization and deliver cost savings, agility, and innovation.

The use cases enabled by AWS Mainframe Modernization Data Replication are:

  • Near-zero downtime and no data loss during production switchover to modernize mainframe applications on the AWS Cloud
  • Cloud-based reporting, analytics, ML, and AI based on mainframe data replicated to data warehouses, data lakes, and data marts on the AWS Cloud
  • Innovation with new business functions, channels, and services based on mainframe data replicated to the AWS Cloud
  • Application equivalence testing of migrated mainframe applications using test environments and test data residing on the AWS Cloud
