Astadia leverages its 25+ years expertise in mainframe modernization to focus on moving these workloads to Microsoft AZURE.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. Astadia announced that Microsoft has honored the company with the “Top Performer” award for Mainframe to AZURE Modernization. Microsoft presented Astadia with the award during the 2018 Microsoft Inspire Conference in Las Vegas, NV.

Mainframes still run significant workloads on behalf of commercial and public sector organizations; yet the cost of maintaining these platforms increases annually while the availability of skilled workers rapidly declines. Azure is now ready to support these workloads with security, performance and reliability, fueling new digital transformation and innovation.

“By aggressively driving digital transformation with Azure, Astadia demonstrates the power of our cloud environment to run mainframe application workloads for clients around the globe,”
said Bob Ellsworth.

“For decades, mainframes have traditionally housed the most mission critical applications for an organization,” said Scott G. Silk, Astadia Chairman and CEO. “Microsoft Azure is ready to take on these workloads, and Astadia is ready to help organizations make the move with a low-cost, low-risk approach, and then provide ongoing services to manage the resulting environment.”
