Efficient, secure, and reliable: These features make mainframes such as IBM Z indispensable for many companies. This is most applicable where numerous business-critical applications are still running on mainframes in the company’s own data center and database. At the same time, companies are reeling under the burden of high operating costs. However, the risk of migrating such workloads to modern platforms or the cloud is too great for most managers, who are concerned about long downtimes and possible disruptions. In addition, companies lack the expertise, and the projects are complex and expensive.
T-Systems operates a standardized, highly efficient infrastructure for mainframe workloads in its own redundant data centers. Advantages for customers: The costs are based on actual demand; users benefit from economies of scale. This comes in addition to high scalability and the use of the latest hardware. In terms of performance, the stand out features of the mainframe operations are their quality and stability with an availability of 99.998 percent. The quality assurance program certified by TÜV Germany ensures this high level of operational stability, and companies don’t just benefit from this in times of crisis. The T-Systems mainframe infrastructure is available globally. To enable this, T-Systems operates one of the world's largest sysplex environments at its main hub in Munich. T-Systems also has additional production sites in South Africa, Spain and operating personnel in Hungary, Brazil, Slovakia, and India. In total, the company has more than 900 experienced mainframe specialists.
