Large mainframes have challenging non-functional requirements in order to process large volumes of data and users for core-business workloads. Micro Focus Enterprise Server mainframe capabilities, combined with AWS global infrastructure, provide the quality of service required by large applications. With this solution, enterprises and public institutions deploy mainframe workloads on AWS with high security, high availability, elasticity, and robust system management.
Mainframe proprietary storage solutions such as VTLs hold valuable data locked in a platform with complex tools. This can lead to higher compute and storage costs, and make it harder to retain existing employees or train new ones. When mainframe data is stored in a cloud storage service, however, it can be accessed by a rich ecosystem of applications and analytics tools. Model9 enables mainframe customers to backup and archive directly to AWS.
Some Oracle workloads, such as Oracle Real Application Cluster (RAC) or WebLogic application clusters, have specific networking and storage requirements, which can be met with VMware Cloud on AWS. This post details the various considerations and migration options users have for Oracle workloads. Specifically, we examine in-depth how to migrate an Oracle database from an on-premises environment to AWS using AWS Database Migration Service (AWS DMS).
Cloud Transformation is Not Just a Cheaper Alternative to a Data Center, But a Path to IT Innovation
While many are aware of the benefits of transitioning applications or workloads to the AWS Cloud, many IT decision makers (ITDM) are not familiar with the more transformative route a company takes when migrating its business to the cloud, or the factors that motivate leaders to choose this approach. Learn about the increasingly popular transformational route and dive deep on what motivates organizations to take this path.
Are you thinking of deploying VMware Greenplum on the AWS Cloud? Many customers also want to shift the responsibility for infrastructure to AWS, considering the alternatives. With VMware Greenplum on AWS, deployments are completely automated and completes in less than an hour. VMware Greenplum is a commercial fully-featured MPP data warehouse platform powered by the open source VMware Greenplum Database.

Many organizations are looking to migrate existing, on-premises enterprise data warehouse systems to cloud-based data warehouse systems such as Amazon Redshift. Here, we discuss how Cognizant’s Intelligent Migration Workbench (IMW) can be used to accelerate the data warehouse migrations while converting Oracle PL/SQL and Tetradata BTEQ scripts. IMW makes it easy to move mission critical proprietary code to AWS, giving customers competitive edge through faster time to market.
Amazon EKS provides a Kubernetes management infrastructure across Availability Zones so you don’t have to manage a control plane or replace unhealthy control plane nodes. AWS Competency Partner XebiaLabs supports infrastructure provisioning and application deployment for many of the most popular AWS services, including Amazon EKS. They recently introduced a feature called DevOps as Code, which makes it even easier to migrate applications to Amazon EKS infrastructure.
Many companies or institutions still possess legacy non-x86 systems in their datacenters: mainframe, midrange, or UNIX proprietary systems. Migrating these workloads across hardware architectures to the AWS Cloud requires advanced software technology. Short-term migration approaches mainly use hardware emulation, middleware emulation, automated refactoring, or middleware replatforming. This post highlights short-term migration options, their key technical differences, as well as their differentiated benefits.
IBM Maximo is an Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) solution that helps organizations manage their assets, track operations, and perform preventive maintenance using predictive analysis and enterprise-ready features. Maximo can be deployed in an on-premises environment, as well as on a public cloud or hybrid cloud environment. This post explores Boral Limited’s journey to the cloud and how Tech Mahindra helped them host IBM Maximo on AWS.
