Run Mainframe Applications in Modern Environments
The LzLabs Software Defined Mainframe® liberates legacy applications with a seamless shift from mainframe run time environments to commercial off-the-shelf Linux platforms without changing a single line of application code. Legacy application programs are placed into a managed software container, that preserves existing application capabilities on a modern computing infrastructure environment…without recompilation.
This innovative solution to a 30-year old industry-wide problem enables the existing legacy mainframe programs to operate without changes to code or compromising performance. It also enables mainframe data to be preserved in its native formats. The LzLabs Software Defined Mainframe® works without making complex changes to the enterprise business environment, helping to preserve enormous historical investments in legacy record applications.
