Micro Focus® enterprise

Enterprise Server

Execute mainframe workload where you need it

Micro Focus Enterprise Server provides a high performance, scalable, deployment environment for hosting IBM mainframe applications that have traditionally run on IBM z/OS environments. Providing the infrastructure to integrate mainframe applications with technologies such as .NET, J2EE, or SOA, and supporting the latest platforms including IBM z Systems, Micro Focus Enterprise Server delivers a fast return on investment to support innovation and growth.

Increase agility

Enterprise Server video

Supporting IBM z Systems and key platforms such as z/Linux, Linux, Windows, UNIX and the cloud, Enterprise Server enables mainframe applications to run with minimal change in your chosen environment.

Improve execution time

Dramatically reduce batch cycle times by taking advantage of the processing power of modern processors.


IT organizations can innovate by reinvesting released budget to realize modernization strategies faster, and by more rapidly deploying to additional platforms as demanded by the business.

Reduce costs

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

Features and Benefits

Reduced RiskApplications behave in the same way they did on the mainframe as the original code defining existing online and batch business process is reused.

Platform flexibility and consistency

Adopt a fit-for-purpose deployment model that is flexible across all key platforms

Re-usable mainframe security model

Reduce learning curve and effort by utilizing existing mainframe security models for authentication and authorization.

Integrated job execution and transaction environment

Provides an easier and lower-risk capability to support migration of mainframe COBOL and PL/I applications.

Complete COBOL and PL/I deployment environment

Delivers equivalent and better quality of service levels for a lower cost and can reduce application operational costs by as much as 90%.

Comprehensive data access capabilities

Lowers the risk of migration projects as more data can be migrated without change.

Mission critical deployment environment

The high performance and highly scalable deployment environment, means that the migrated application can meet and exceed the Reliability, Availability and Serviceability (RAS) expectations of the business.
