Hosted Services
IBM Cloud Managed Services on Z or "zCloud" is a hosted multitenant
cloud service available in 18 countries worldwide. It allows users to have
IBM manage their mainframe environment, including the infrastructure,
networking, backups and ongoing systems administration. The zCloud
services include z/OS* and Linux*, with IBM administrators handling user
ID management, database administration, OS, OS patches and upgrades.
"We're offering clients LPARs on an IBM-owned box in an IBM data
center. The first phase begins with moving your workload to the IBM
environment. Then we have some 6,500 mainframe specialists within
IBM Global Technology Services around the world who run and operate
the mainframe and provide it back as a service," explains Steven Dickens,
global offering manager, zCloud, IBM Global Technology Services.
"We keep our zCloud subsystem and hardware up to date so users
don't have to stay on the 'hamster wheel' of keeping their infrastructure
current. We do this while offering small and medium-sized clients
savings of 20 to 30 percent over traditional single tenant on-premises
operational models."

Making
Connections
IBM Bluemix, a cloud Platform as a Service (PaaS),
is used to build composite applications for the cloud.
For example, if someone wants to gain access to
MongoDB and connect to pieces of middleware to build
applications, which can be run, deployed and
managed on the IBM SoftLayer* infrastructure, this
would be the tool to use.
According to Frank De Gilio, CTO for IT modernization,
IBM Systems, "It can be used to prototype new
applications in minutes with minimal coding, combine
information from the mainframe with the latest
IBM Watson* technologies to create new insights into
customers, and take advantage of third-party services
to connect to customers in new ways."

Unlock
New Value
IBM z/OS Connect opens up
pieces of business logic, data and
transactions across systems and
their z/OS subsystems as RESTful
APIs, leveraging tools such as IBM
Application Discovery and Delivery
Intelligence, which allow users
to discover and unlock new value
from their most valuable asset:
existing code. And thanks to z/OS
Connect, IBM Z modernization
projects can take place in a fraction
of the time traditionally associated
with such efforts.
"People want to connect to
their back-end systems of record,
including Db2* for z/OS, with
various different RESTful APIs
and SOAP interfaces because new
web and mobile applications have
to be able to integrate with those
resources. The API framework
we offer with z/OS Connect
offers all of that, allowing users
to turn current transaction and
application components as
services to born-on-the-cloud
applications," Dotson adds.
