    Heirloom Computing Blows Away Mainframe Performance At A Fraction Of The Cost

    TPC-C Benchmark Test on HP Cloud Services with Heirloom’s ELPaaS Proves the Viability of Moving Mainframe Workloads to the Cloud

    FREMONT, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The latest benchmark testing by Heirloom Computing revealed that the company’s ELPaaS cloud platform for legacy applications is much faster than mainframe computing alternatives, while costing companies 90% less.

    The results strongly validate the viability of cloud computing as a less expensive and highly reliable alternative to traditional and expensive mainframe computing solutions.

    In this TPC-C benchmarking test, Heirloom used an HP Compute Cloud “Standard, Extra Large” (4 CPU, 16GB RAM) instance as its building block. Blocks can be added or removed dynamically for exceptional scalability and flexibility. Heirloom used 1,500 terminals to achieve a transaction throughput rate of 12,105 CICS transactions per minute, equivalent to a 905 MIPS mainframe – well within the needs of the vast majority of mainframe users. Compatibility with IBM COBOL & CICS was provided by Heirloom’s Elastic COBOL and compatibility with the IBM DB2 database was provided by VMware’s SQLFire. The benchmark was orchestrated by Heirloom’s JES/JCL engine and deployed to Heirloom’s ELPaaS.

    The IBM Systems Journal Vol. 40, No. 3 article, “Characteristics of production database workloads and the TPC benchmarks,”determined that the TPC-C benchmark is a good representation of the production IBM CICS workloads run by almost all Global 2000 datacenters.

    “The results are in and it’s safe to say that Heirloom Computing offers a fantastic solution for moving mainframe workloads to the cloud, both in terms of performance and cost,” said Gary Crook, CEO of Heirloom Computing. “CIOs and IT managers need to take a hard look at their IT roadmap and ask themselves if it makes sense to keep pouring money into legacy hardware and software solutions when the cloud offers such a viable, agile and inexpensive alternative.”

    “Today’s cloud computing environment has all the necessary components for affordable, effective enterprise computing, at a fraction of the cost compared to mainframe alternatives,” said Mark Haynie, CTO of Heirloom Computing. “With Heirloom’s experience and the proven capabilities of its partner network to provide world-class implementation and support at every step, the benefits of this solution are within reach for enterprises of all sizes.”

    Heirloom Computing is on a mission to modernize the world’s business-critical enterprise software applications. Heirloom’s best-in-class tools seamlessly migrate legacy systems to private and public cloud computing infrastructures, so IT departments can reap the cost benefits of cloud computing and satisfy user demands for applications accessible via web browsers and mobile devices.

    First Non-Invasive Licensing-As-A-Service (LaaS) Solution Now Available From Heirloom Computing

    Cloud-based solution eliminates shipping, installation and tracking of software licensing keys

    FREMONT, Calif.–()–Enterprise software publishers and commercial application providers now have a non-invasive alternative for license management as Heirloom Computing today announced its new cloud-based licensing-as-a-service (LaaS) solution.

    Heirloom’s LaaS solution delivers unprecedented flexibility and ease-of-use. Instead of producing, shipping, installing and managing software licensing keys, application providers of all sizes can now manage licenses via a single browser-based dashboard, for any application on any platform. Furthermore, Heirloom’s LaaS solution allows application providers to continuously provision and manage users, track service and feature usage, and change pricing and features at any time.

    “Heirloom’s new licensing-as-a-service solution is a revolutionary step in software license management,” said Mark Haynie, CTO of Heirloom Computing. “This enables software publishers and ISVs to streamline and automate the license management process, because it doesn’t require the issuance of a key that can get corrupted or expire due to operating system, installation or upgrade issues.”

    “By moving the licensing process to the cloud, Heirloom’s LaaS puts application providers in complete control of their assets and licensing terms,” said Gary Crook, CEO of Heirloom Computing. “It’s a real win-win scenario, as their customers no longer have to contend with managing invasive licensing software on their machines. Common tasks that used to take several days, such as transferring licenses, can now be completed in seconds.”

    Heirloom Computing Speeds Legacy Modernization In The Cloud With First-Of-Its-Kind Job Scheduler

    Fremont, CA (February 26, 2013) – Heirloom Computing Inc. today announced a first-of-its-kind scheduler to run batch jobs on ELPaaS, Heirloom’s Platform-as-a-Service for moving mission-critical enterprise applications to the cloud.

    The Heirloom Job Scheduler works with Heirloom’s Job Entry Subsystem (JES) to make it easier and much less expensive for IT managers to manage their legacy applications in the cloud. Heirloom offers full support for legacy batch job languages such as IBM Job Control Language (JCL) as well as common scripting dialects, including UNIX shell and Python.

    “We’ve been hearing from IT managers that they would really like the ability to schedule jobs to run in the cloud. Heirloom’s new scheduler solves that problem,” said Gary Crook, CEO of Heirloom Computing.

    Watch this short video to learn more about the Heirloom Job Scheduler: http://youtu.be/mANO2BULOu4

    The Heirloom cloud-based Job Scheduler reduces IT costs by making cloud-based legacy modernization more efficient and affordable. Cloud instances are started and stopped by the scheduler during a “batch window.” Fully compatible with IT operations today, the scheduler and the Job Entry Subsystem divide jobs into “classes” of resources (CPU, database, network), manages concurrency among a large pool of resources, and collects job “report” output for later viewing, printing or distribution from a central cloud-based Web portal. The scheduler frees up datacenter human resources, speeds delivering of mission-critical information and reports, and leads to greater application service levels.

    “Heirloom’s cloud-based job scheduler is a real step forward in the modernization of legacy applications,” said Mark Haynie, Chief Technology Officer for Heirloom Computing. “Scheduled workloads that are more intensive are given more cloud resources to finish within the batch window, dramatically reducing the cost of maintaining computing resources that are only used to run large jobs.”

    Heirloom Computing is on a mission to efficiently modernize the world’s business-critical enterprise software applications. Heirloom seamlessly migrates legacy systems to private and public cloud computing infrastructures, enabling IT departments to reap the cost benefits of cloud computing and satisfy user demands for applications accessible via web browsers and mobile devices.
