By leveraging the Astadia and AWS partnership, enterprises and government organizations can:

  • Get a rapid assessment providing a roadmap and an estimated cost to move their mainframe workloads to a distributed platform. This includes a variety of options such as the migration method, comprehensive testing, DevOps concepts, and support
  • Perform automated code transformation from multiple sources (z/OS, z/VSE, CICS, IMS, Assembler, JCL, COBOL, Natural, ADS, Fortran, REXX) to modern platforms
  • Automatically convert legacy databases and files(Db2, ADABAS, IDMS, IMS DB, VSAM, GDGs)
  • License the Astadia Migration Factory that accelerates and industrializes the process of migrating and testing legacy applications, resulting infixed-price project fees, fast turnover and ROI.

Main Benefits of Migrating to AWS

Migrate any workload – applications, websites, databases, storage, physical or virtual servers – and even entire data centers from anon-premises environment, hosting facility, or other public cloud to AWS.

Your Cloud Environment

Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) lets you provision a logically isolated section of AWS where you launch and manage AWS resources in a virtual network that you define.

Computing Resources

Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) provides secure, resizable compute capacity in AWS. It holds the operating systems, mainframe emulators, application executables, and other supporting software that make up your application.


AWS storage services are designed to deliver 99.999999999% durability and scale past trillions of objects worldwide. These services are combined to meet the storage requirements of your mainframe applications.


Amazon’s Relational Database Service (RDS) is where all your legacy relational data will reside. It is optimized for database performance, cost-efficient, has resizable capacity, and is designed to reduce time-consuming database administration tasks.

Load Balancing

Amazon Elastic Load Balancing (ELB) automatically distributes incoming application traffic across multiple EC2 instances to achieve scalability, high-performance, and fault tolerance in your migrated applications.

Source Control

AWS Code Commit is a fully-managed source code control service providing secure and private Git repositories. It eliminates the need to operate your own source control system or worry about scaling its infrastructure.

Three Strong Promises

Functional Equivalence

The migrated application’s behavior is identical to that of the original one.

Performance Equivalence

The migrated application will perform at least as well as the original one.

Maintenance Equivalence

The maintenance of the migrated application will be comparable in effort to the original application.
