Mainframe to Cloud Migration

Leverage our Modern, Cloud-Connected Mainframe approach to speed up migration, modernize applications and data, and mitigate complexities.

Move from your mainframe to the cloud with confidence

The journey from mainframe to the cloud looks different for every business. While some require a data center exit but don’t know what to do with their mainframe, others need better agility out of their infrastructure. Others want it all. The common thread: Skill gaps, data center complexities or fear of migration can stall migration efforts.

No matter your ideal state, Ensono’s proven Modern, Cloud-Connected Mainframe approach seamlessly moves business-critical data and applications where you need them. Our approach combines the unparalleled resources and flexibility of the cloud with the transactional performance and resilience of the modern mainframe — speeding up the transition, reducing complexities, simplifying with mainframe data virtualization, and mitigating security risks.

Take full advantage of cloud agility

Leverage cloud scalability and rise above rigid on-premise workloads. We provide automated scaling that protects you from surge costs and threats to critical applications. Additionally, with Ensono Flex®, you can shift workloads across any of our service platforms without financial penalties, giving you the flexibility to adapt to changing needs.

Move your mainframe out of your data center and closer to the public cloud

Our integrated mainframe solution provides low-latency connectivity to optimize your modern application architecture and create a seamless path to the cloud. As a result, you’re able to save costs by shutting down your data center while taking advantage of the public cloud platform of your choice. While you migrate systems of engagement, we can modernize and run your mainframe environment to gain performance and agility.

Check out our Cloud-Connected Mainframe for Microsoft Azure: it provides 2-3 ms latency connectivity to optimize your modern application architecture and creates a seamless path to Azure. You can use cloud-native data and AI tools to enable predictive analytics, correlate meaning from large volumes of data, and make data-driven decisions.

Continue optimizing in a simplified, agile environment

With the mainframe seamlessly connected via the Modern, Cloud-Connected Mainframe solution, all paths to migration become simplified and more affordable. Our experts can help you securely modernize on or off the mainframe with reduced risk and complexity.

Retire your mainframe at your own pace

Once you’re ready to retire your mainframe, we provide the expertise and flexibility you need to move at a pace that works for your business. Ensono Flex® is built into every one of our contracts, allowing you to shift workloads across platforms with no penalty (and we’re the only provider out of thousands to offer this contractual flexibility).
