New White Paper! Mainframe to Cloud: Design Once, Deploy Anywhere in a Hybrid World
Valuable mainframe data can become even more powerful when it’s accessible in the cloud. The challenge is the complexity of working with mainframe data, as these systems don’t always integrate seamlessly with today’s newest technology. Syncsort’s new white paper, “Mainframe to Cloud: Design Once, Deploy Anywhere in a Hybrid World,” explains how to create a system – once – that will enable you to harvest mainframe data so it can be put to work in a hybrid and multiple cloud environment.
One of the main reasons companies are moving to multi-cloud architectures stems from a desire to gain flexibility. Multi-cloud deployments also provide improved reliability and don’t rely on a single provider, allowing organizations to have a failover solution if their primary cloud provider has any issues.
Given that hybrid and multi-cloud environments are only going to become more common in the coming years, it makes sense to use a design once, deploy anywhere strategy. To achieve this, organizations should focus on the data itself and base their cloud needs around the following questions:
- What needs to happen with this data?
- Where is the data coming from?
- Where is the data going to?
- What needs to happen to it before it gets to the destination?
Leveraging mainframe data with new platforms, such as cloud, can generate a great deal of value for a business, but mainframe data is complex, and finding ways to simplify it is important to ensure you get a return on your investment.
