No. Our view as a certified AWS Mainframe Migration competency partner, is that the fastest way to the cloud is to build on what you have to get results from new technology. With Micro Focus technology, COBOL and mainframe applications can run virtually unchanged anywhere. We help by deploying business critical mainframe and COBOL applications to new infrastructures without the risk or costs associated with rewrites.
Modern cloud infrastructure can deploy re-platformed applications while maintaining or improving reliability, availability, and scalability. The underlying reliability is comparable to the mainframe and sharing processing across multiple virtual machines guarantees availability to eliminate single failure points. Meanwhile, the inherent scalability delivers demand-driven resources both dynamically and cost effectively.
