Modernizing and migrating mainframe workloads to Amazon Web Services (AWS) enables customers to drive innovation, business agility, staff productivity, and cost savings while mitigating risks associated with maintaining older technologies. AWS Mainframe Modernization is a unique platform that allows customers to migrate and modernize on-premises mainframe workloads to a managed and highly available runtime environment.
Leveraging years of collaboration, AWS and Intel have combined engineering resources to optimize enterprise cloud migrations for customers across the globe. Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), based on Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors, provides a wide selection of instance types optimized to fit different mainframe modernization use cases. Instance types comprise varying combinations of CPU, memory, storage, and networking capacity and offer the flexibility to choose the appropriate mix of resources at the right price point for your applications. Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors provide the foundation for the most extensive breadth of computing instances offered by AWS. Customers can choose from over 350 proven, workload-optimized Amazon EC2 Intel-based instances to meet specific needs.
Recognizing the complexity of mainframe modernization, AWS customers seek proven methodologies, tools, and best practices for accelerating mainframe migrations and modernization on AWS. With AWS and Intel, mainframe customers gain access to customized technologies and software optimizations tailored for mission critical enterprise applications, honed mainframe migration strategies, and a comprehensive ecosystem of mainframe technology and professional services competency partners to assist with the migration and modernization process. The AWS Competency Partner Program is designed to identify, validate, and promote AWS Partners with demonstrated AWS technical expertise and proven customer success. The AWS Competency Partner Program has validated that AWS Mainframe Modernization Competency Partners have demonstrated they can help customers migrate applications and legacy infrastructure to AWS.
Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Intel have collaborated for over 17 years to develop flexible technologies and software optimizations tailored for mission critical enterprise applications. Intel® Xeon® processors provide the foundation of many cloud computing services deployed on AWS and this collaboration allows AWS Partners such as, Atos, Accenture, Cognizant, Capgemini, NTT Data, and Tmaxsoft to help customers migrate and modernize their applications and infrastructure to manage cost and complexity, accelerate business outcomes, and scale to meet current and future computing requirements.
