LzLabs and Microsoft Azure announced their cooperation in the implementation of a Software Defined mainframe in the cloud. This technology solution is designed to enable customers to transfer their existing mainframe software applications and data seamlessly on Linux-based cloud platforms. Microsoft Azure is therefore to be a preferred cloud provider for customers of LzLabs to enable cloud hosting for its Software Defined mainframe and providing their mainframe applications in the cloud. Microsoft will thereby support the migration and the changing of the mainframe users to Azure.
