Verang has extensive experience in migrating mainframe databases and data sets to modern environments. We have experience solely rehosting mainframe database as well as rehosting databases during full modernization of legacy systems. In our experience, only Oracle, DB2, and MSSQL provide sophisticated enough configurations for scaling and redundancy, and along with the Cloud are our target environment when rehosting a database.
|Source Mainframe Databases and Data Sets|
|Any RDMS vendor to another RDMS vendor|
|IDCAMS (for VSAM data-sets)|
|QSAM (including GDG emulation)|
|TERADATA (SQL migration and data migration)|
|OS & TP Monitor Emulations|
|Batch (JES and some TSO functions)|
|Web Services (autogen from subroutines)|
|Target Mainframe Databases/Data Sets|
|DB2 UDB version 9 or better|
|MSSQL 2014 or newer|
|MySQL (VSAM/QSAM/DB2 only)|
|Oracle 11g or better|
|PostgreSQL (VSAM/QSAM/DB2 only)|
|Any platform that supports Java version 1.8 or better|
|Linux 32 and 64 bit - Red Hat, Ubuntu, Fedora, Centos, etc.|
|Windows 32 and 64 bit|
|And other platforms|
Verang’s proprietary set of internally developed applications and processes is called the “Data Migration Framework” (DMF). Verang’s DMF embodies procedures, technical know-how and applications developed throughout the years of working on mainframe data migration projects.
The DMF platform allows for automation of many labor intensive steps in mainframe migration projects including:
DMF is configurable to meet the requirements of all common types of migration projects and environments. Being configurable, DMF allows for:
Verang’s automated migration methodology allows for repeated and fast conversion cycles that minimally involve human interaction and produce reliable and uniform results.
Verang is flexible in migrating databases to target mainframes or to a Cloud storage. When migrating to the Cloud, Verang uses industry partners who specialize in FedRamp certified Cloud service providers such as Amazon Webs Services or Microsoft Azure to successfully migrate the legacy mainframe to a secure Cloud service provider.
