• mainframe solutions for the next generation

    We expose mainframe data via RESTful API's enabling the development of mainframe microservices in modern programming languages.

  • Our Platform

    We’ve pioneered the ability to develop mainframe microservices without requiring them to be installed on the mainframe.

    We're called Mainframe Cloud because we allow you to manage your z/OS platform with the agility of a typical "cloud experience". Our platform deploys via SaaS but operates within the confines of your organisation's intranet. You can close your web-browser once you've launched.

  • Our Value

    Bridging the Gap Between Legacy & Digital

    Agile Development

    • Build new mainframe applications in modern programming languages.
    • No set-up or infrastructure required.
    • Decouple your business/application logic from the mainframe's system of record
    • Preserve your mainframe as a database server (rather than an application server)
    • Significantly increase the velocity/agility of your development
    • Mobilise your mobile/web developers by providing access to mainframe data in real-time.

    Seamless Deployment

    • SaaS deployment means that all new software applications are available 'on demand'
    • Because applications run 'off-host' it negates the need for extensive pre-installation testing
    • Our platform is launched via the internet but operates within the confines of your company intranet (this is our hybrid cloud). Close your web-browser once you've launched!

    No Installation Required

    • Our platform and apps are deployed with minimal set-up (i.e. 15-20 mins).
    • No infrastructure is required
    • Proprietary 'no install' architecture means no code is physically (or permanently) installed on the mainframe
    • All user permissions are managed via existing TSO credentials, we don't change any existing mainframe security settings.

    Write Once & Run Everywhere

    • Our solution architecture provides versatility across multiple platforms
    • New applications built in modern programming languages using MainSpace  are transferable to distributed platforms
    • No need to re-write applications or retrain developers.

    Low Risk & High Reward

    • Because our applications aren’t installed on the mainframe (& have less moving parts than traditional mainframe products) it reduces the risk that they will cause an abend or outage
    • Unlike most web server applications, the MfC Agent is designed to use significantly less mainframe resources and offloads most of the processing load to the PC platform.

    Our Products

    • Build your own applications using MainSpace or use our existing applications
    • All Apps are accessed via a single platform console that incorporates a ‘Windows’ style GUI.
    • Our ‘single pane of glass’ approach is designed to integrate and simplify mainframe operations
    • Application updates/enhancements are immediately available to new users on Login.
  • How it Works

    Our Solution Architecture Explained

  • Our Products

    As a mainframe user all you need to do is to Register on our website and set-up your profile.

    Once set-up, every time you want to run our applications, you simply go to our website and Log in. Alternatively our solution can be installed in your own private cloud environment.

    Enabling the Next Generation of IT Professionals

    Sector: Government

    The ATO is the Australian Government's principal revenue collection agency. A number of ATO staff require access to mainframe information in order to perform their roles effectively. Accessing mainframe information often requires assistance from specialist mainframe staff. Mainframe Cloud's Explore and Command applications allow non-specialists to navigate the mainframe in a user intuitive way without requiring specialist assistance. The result is an increase in the level of efficiency and productivity.
