Increase agility

Supporting application deployment to key environments, including LinuxONE, Linux on Intel and Power, Windows, UNIX, and the public and private cloud, Enterprise Server enables mainframe applications to run with minimal change in your chosen environment. Move or replicate existing mainframe workload to new platforms for rapid expansion to new markets or geographies.

Improve execution time

Dramatically reduce batch cycle execution times by taking advantage of modern, distributed and lower cost processors.

Secure your applications

Deploying mainframe application workload to new platforms requires flexible and comprehensive security to guard against threats and to protect valuable applications and data. Enterprise Server delivers support for a RACF comparable security capability, to enable the reuse of existing mainframe security rules for authentication and application level authorization. In addition, you can utilize long user names and passwords as well as Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) to further enhance your security strategy.

Maximize your IT budget

IT organizations can innovate faster by reinvesting existing IT budget into new initiatives and rapidly deploying core business workload to new environments to meet new business requirements.

Reduce operational costs

Deploying IBM mainframe application workload to Enterprise Server has enabled some organizations to slash ongoing IT operational costs by up to 90%. Additionally, planned mainframe upgrades can be deferred or cancelled by leveraging the flexible, lower-cost Enterprise Server solution.
