Clerity Solutions has released the eighth generation of its mainframe rehosting reference architecture, designed to reduce the costs and complexities of mainframe migration and modernization initiatives. This updated framework supports the newest third-party infrastructure products and utilities required for smooth transitions from legacy mainframe systems to flexible open systems environments.

The Clerity Mainframe Rehosting Reference Architecture (MFRRA) mitigates risks and accelerates implementations by helping organizations determine how to plan, execute, and manage successful migration projects. Mainframe application workloads may include tens to hundreds of third-party tools and utilities. By identifying and sourcing all the third-party products and replacement utilities necessary on a new target platform such as the Clerity MFRRA, organizations can be assured that their business-critical applications will continue to run smoothly and quality of service will be maintained after migration.

Clerity has continued to refine the breadth and depth of the Clerity MFRRA. The MFRRA now supports tools and utilities such as Syncsort’s DMExpress high-performance data integration acceleration software, and LRS VPSX from Levi, Ray & Shoup, Inc., a scalable enterprise output management system for UNIX, Linux, and Windows environments. A range of application development environments, including Veryant’s vCOBOL Enterprise platform for COBOL deployment on open systems, also runs within the flexible Clerity framework.

The Clerity MFRRA now includes over 22 solution categories representing more than 70 software products in key IT areas such as accounting and chargeback; automation and event management; content and source code management; printing and output management; job scheduling; security; sorting; and storage management. Customers have leveraged Clerity’s framework to help select infrastructure tools and utilities for their open systems environments.
