Moving mainframe applications to modern environments brings a host of benefits, including cost reduction, greater flexibility and opportunities to modernize. However, cloud platforms are often overlooked as a target environment for legacy workload. One of the reasons for this is scalability: specifically, the ability to run a highly stable workload in the cloud with consistent response times.

LzLabs has undertaken a benchmarking exercise, the results of which clearly demonstrate that it is now possible to run a credible mainframe workload at scale, with consistent response times, in the cloud.

To achieve this, we used a CICS COBOL reference application (zRef) running without recompilation on LzLabs Software Defined Mainframe® (LzSDM) on Microsoft Azure infrastructure.
