Sun now offers a new software license for only 50 users of SunTM
Mainframe Transaction Processing Software 7.2. This license is for
customers with small production environments who are looking for lower
entry prices when rehosting on Sun.
These products allow mainframe applications running on IBM and PCM
(Amdahl, HDS) mainframes to be rehosted on SunTM systems running
SolarisTM Operating Environment (Solaris OE). They allow the applications to be
moved to the Sun environment with little or no change. Product system
requirements are UltraSPARCTM server platform running Solaris 7 or
8 OE for development systems. UltraSPARCTM III platforms require
Solaris 8 OE.
Sun Mainframe Transaction Processing Software supports enterprise
applications without extensive rewriting or re-engineering of the
original application. Integrate new processes and ideas into
existing legacy applications by using JavaTM technology-based tools
and beans to build enterprise components.
Sun Mainframe Transaction Processing Software helps protect
mainframe application assets by providing a mainframe CICS compatible
software environment on Solaris OE. Existing COBOL, C and/or PL/1
applications and sequential, VSAM, or and/or DB2 data files can be
easily migrated onto Sun servers. Sun Mainframe Transaction Processing
Software also includes a real-time performance monitor to report the
rehosted CICS transaction workload on Solaris OE, plus an optional
security system similar to mainframe RACF or Top Secret.
