Reducing cost while maintaining performance is a requirement for all IBM z System Mainframe users. At Proximal Systems Corporation, we have created a solution that will save your business money, while remaining at least as reliable as the Mainframe. The result is a unified computing complex, where various tasks can be easily migrated between computing systems for cost and processing efficiency, while still being able to interoperate as if hosted on the same system.
However a z System Mainframe user chooses to deploy the Proxy Coupling Technology, the fundamental platform choice is maintained; the z System Mainframe and its related Operating System remain as the underlying architecture.
The fact that the proxy task maintains the same interface as the application being replaced is crucial. Many past IBM Mainframe migration projects have failed due to fatal interoperability problems between the IBM Mainframe and Distributed Systems. Should the proxy Distributed Systems platform not be readily available for whatever reason, the Proxy Coupling Technology will default to native z System Mainframe usage.
