Introducing LzLabs

LzLabs Software Defined Mainframe® enables both Linux and Cloud infrastructure to process thousands of mainframe transactions per second, while maintaining enterprise requirements for reliability availability, serviceability and security. This software solution includes a faithful re-creation of the primary online, batch and database environments, which enables unrivalled compatibility and exceptional performance, dramatically reducing IT cost.

LzLabs’ software solution allows the executable form of legacy customer mainframe programs to operate without changes and without compromising performance in a contemporary and cost-effective computing environment; and enables mainframe data to be written and read in its native formats. This new environment works without forcing recompilations of COBOL and PL/1 application programs or making complex changes to the enterprise business environment.

The Challenges

Today, over 70% of the world’s transactions are completed on legacy systems.

Even today, over 70% of the world’s transactions are completed on legacy systems. ATMs, airline tickets, insurance policies, payroll, government departments, banking transactions and many more run on the these systems.

Historically, organizations have been forced to abandon compatibility with the mainframe when contemplating moving legacy applications and data to Linux or to the Cloud.

LzLabs Software Defined Mainframe® is a managed software container that provides enterprises with a viable way to shift their applications from mainframes onto Linux computers or private, public and hybrid cloud environments.

While users want to move off legacy systems, the reality is workloads are increasing:
