We design automated optimization software for mainframe leaders — for you.

VirtualZ Automated Optimization

VirtualZ automated optimization software designed by industry innovators who hold patents in mainframe software

We are leveraging our track record of mainframe innovation to create new technical strategies for mainframe optimization.

Product agnostic support for many of the solutions you use everyday

Start saving money immediately on the software products you already use while realizing new levels of optimization throughout the environment.

Fast and easy to install
  • No JCL, programming or ops changes
  • No system outages or other downtime
  • Flexible configuration and automation policies
  • Configuration samples provided for most common uses
  • Supports IBM z/OS 2.1 and forward
Works within the DevOps tool chain

Maximizes systems development life cycle, and supports collaboration.

Fully automated for new levels of mainframe modernization

Dynamic architecture intelligently adapts to your environment using policy-based customization for “hands-off” intelligent adjustments yet offering full user controls. You set the rules; VirtualZ does the work.

World-class, security-centric architecture

Maintains the safe, secure, high availability and performance of the mainframe. Honors and conforms to existing security policies and controls.

The last thing you need is another report telling you where cost and optimization problems are in your environment but then leaves you with the continuous, manual monitoring and heavy lifting to fix it. You manually write code, move work around, wade through SCRT reports, continuously monitor peak usage and finally analyze invoices 30 days later to see if anything worked.

That’s a bit like whack-a-mole.

Customer Use Case

Today’s mainframe software licensing topography is inefficient, expensive and complex.

Paying differently for each product by horsepower of each mainframe

Paying for products on every mainframe

Inefficiently managing license complexities

Installing new releases and updates across multiple mainframes

Waiting to get into rare IPL windows for updates or run old versions

Continuous, manual monitoring
