AWS Wants Mainframe Customers To Move To Cloud, Announces New Service

With AWS Mainframe Modernization, customers can refactor their mainframe workloads to run on AWS by transforming legacy applications into modern Java-based cloud services.

With AWS Mainframe Modernization, customers can refactor their mainframe workloads to run on AWS by transforming legacy applications into modern Java-based cloud services. Alternatively, customers can keep their applications as written and re-platform their workloads to AWS, reusing existing code with minimal changes. A runtime environment built into AWS Mainframe Modernization provides the necessary compute, memory, and storage to run both refactored and re-platformed applications and automatically handles the details of capacity provisioning, security, load balancing, auto-scaling, and application health monitoring. 

“More and more customers are modernizing their applications by moving them to the cloud to take advantage of the elasticity and agility of AWS and to reinvent customer experiences at a lower cost. But, for most enterprises, migrating their mainframe applications to the cloud is uncharted territory. With today’s launch of AWS Mainframe Modernization, customers and systems integrators can now more quickly modernize their legacy mainframe workloads in a predictable way and get rid of much of the complexity and manual work involved in migrations. AWS Mainframe Modernization provides automation in discovery, analysis, migration, and testing phases, and it gives customers and systems integrators a managed runtime environment to deploy their re-platformed and refactored mainframe workloads for their customers, which makes modernizing applications faster and easier,” said William Platt, General Manager of Migration Services at AWS. 

The service also provides continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) capabilities to enable modern application development and deployment best practices, so customers can operate their modernized workloads in production on an ongoing basis with superior agility, elasticity, and cost savings of AWS. AWS Mainframe Modernization de-risks and accelerates the migration of mainframe and legacy workloads to AWS.

AWS Mainframe Modernization provides all the development, testing, and deployment tools necessary to automate the migration from mainframe and legacy environments to AWS. Customers and systems integrators (SIs) can use AWS Mainframe Modernization to help enterprise migration teams assess and analyze migration readiness and plan migration projects. There are no upfront costs for using AWS Mainframe Modernization, and customers only pay for the amount of computing provisioned.
