Initiative will bring customers’ legacy mainframe applications to LzLabs Software Defined Mainframe® on Google Cloud
London, 23 July 2020 – LzLabs today announced that it has joined the Google Cloud Partner Advantage Program as a Technology Partner, offering customers a comprehensive cloud experience when liberating their legacy applications from mainframe environments.
As a Google Cloud partner, LzLabs will provide customers with the opportunity to rehost and incrementally modernize mainframe applications with the LzLabs Software Defined Mainframe® (LzSDM®) running on Google Cloud’s Platform.
Many global enterprises seek to modernize their mainframe applications in order to benefit from greater agility, cost savings, and flexibility for innovation. Through this partnership, Google Cloud customers can now benefit from LzLabs’ unique technology and incremental modernization approach.
Once migrated to LzSDM on Google Cloud, mainframe workloads benefit from flexibility, reliability, and availability, and customers gain the agility benefits of managing these applications using modern DevOps and orchestration tools.
Enterprises also benefit from LzSDM’s unique ability to allow mainframe and rehosted applications on Open Systems to co-exist and interoperate, reducing disruption and risk. In addition, incremental application modernization opportunities and integrated compilation options within LzSDM help companies to maintain applications more easily and rewrite parts of them in new languages.
Customers re-hosting applications from legacy mainframe systems to Google Cloud will be supported by both LzLabs and Google Cloud throughout, ensuring a smooth transition.
“Many of the world’s largest enterprises have struggled to incorporate legacy mainframe applications and data into their cloud-native initiatives,” said Mark Cresswell, CEO, LzLabs. “Through relationships with cloud providers such as Google Cloud, we are enabling these customers to become cloud-native at their core.”
