In businesses today, across all market segments, cloud computing has become the focus of current and future technology needs for the enterprise. Key Topics in this Whitepaper include:
The cloud offers compelling economics, the latest technologies and platforms, and the agility to adapt your information systems quickly and efficiently. However, many large organizations are burdened by much older, previous generation platforms, typically in the form of a mainframe computing environment.
Although old and very expensive to maintain, the mainframe platform continues to run the most important information systems of an organization. In Astadia’s previously published unisys reference architecture guide the goal was to assist business and IT professionals as they prepare plans and project teams to start the process of moving mainframe-based application portfolios to Amazon Web Services (AWS). In this new document, the Unisys Mainframe Workload on AWS—Performance Benchmark, we explore the performance & tuning aspects of the application set, after it has been moved to AWS.
This document is part of the Astadia Mainframe to Cloud Modernization Series that leverages Astadia’s 25+ years of mainframe platform modernization expertise.
