SHARE Pittsburgh 2019 – VirtualZ and RSM Technical Session : IBM Z in the Cloud with zWaaS™
Room 302 / Tuesday August 6, 2019 2:15 – 3:15 pm
VirtualZ zWaaS™ IBM Z Workload as a Service: Cloud Computing Benefits on IBM Z
While today an entire LPAR, CPU or data center can move to the cloud, we discuss a new IBM Z Workload as a Service (ZWaaS) capability as key in the mainframe world, with an environment as a Software Defined Mainframe (SDMF). In this model, a granular unit of eligible mainframe workload would be selected, based upon a policy or rule set, and be dynamically dispatched from a known and configured source mainframe for execution in an environment hosted by a service provider. Depending upon the application and the unit of work, data remains where it is, and is automatically synchronized as needed along with the unit of work, and the results returned to the source environment.
Join us and learn how to:
-Reduce your mainframe software license fees by ~50% for Enterprise COBOL for z/OS, Cobol V4, z/OS XL C/C++, Enterprise PL/I for z/OS, 21st Century VFI, Compuware File-AID, MicroFocus ChangeMan, CA Endeavor, CA Librarian, Easytrieve®, and more from Rocket Software, BMC, Compuware, ASG, CA, IBM and other IBM Z ISV’s and more.
-Offload mainframe software products to one or more cloud providers.
-Automatically shift eligible workloads based on user defined policies.
