For years, companies have been transferring to cloud providers to assist them scale and be agile. However the lack of cloud-based providers for optimizing mainframe computing has been notable. Astadia is trying to fill on this hole with its new mainframe migration and modernization providers for Amazon Net Companies. 
The AWS Mainframe Modernization Service from Astadia goals to let IT groups assess and analyze migration readiness and plan tasks. As soon as carried out and examined, groups at massive enterprises can deploy mainframe workloads to AWS into the platform’s managed runtime atmosphere.  
“We’re excited to be a a part of the AWS Mainframe Modernization Service, which provides organizations the ideally suited platform of alternative when transferring mainframe workloads to AWS. Astadia’s distinctive manufacturing facility supply mannequin enhances the AWS Mainframe Modernization Service by enabling purchasers emigrate to AWS in unprecedented timeframes,” – Scott G. Silk, Astadia’s Chairman and CEO.
With Astadia’s participation in AWS Mainframe Modernization Service, enterprises and authorities organizations can:
With all these capabilities, Astadia’s Migration Manufacturing unit can cut back the length of a typical migration mission by as a lot as 90%, Silk added. 

In March, Astadia introduced the availability of its “Migration Manufacturing unit” which automates transferring IBM and Unisys mainframe functions and databases to distributed and cloud computing platforms.  
Migration Manufacturing unit combines Astadia’s experience in mainframe modernization with a mainframe-centric toolset from Anubex, which industrializes the refactoring of legacy workloads, simplifies the migration of databases, and permits a holistic and automatic method to testing for the full “end-to-end” migration course of from on-prem to cloud. Astadia acquired Anubex in 2021. 
The Migration Manufacturing unit consists of 4 essential constructing blocks: CodeTurn, DataTurn, TestMatch and DataMatch. 
CodeTurn automates the refactoring of legacy code into trendy programming languages corresponding to Java, C#, or others. In doing so, we will obtain automation ranges of roughly 99.99%. The opposite 0.01% of the time (the place human intervention is required) is triggered as a part of the broader automated workflow course of. In different phrases, even the necessity for human involvement is a part of a extra in depth set of well-orchestrated procedures.
DataTurn automates the migration of knowledge from legacy databases corresponding to IDMS and Pure ADABAS to nearly any trendy relational database – together with SQL Server, Oracle, IBM DB2, PostgreSQL, and others. DataTurn does greater than map present knowledge schemas to a relational knowledge construction, although. The toolset permits clients to switch knowledge constructions to go well with their wants following the info migration.
The Astadia weblog described a number of the internal workings of how CodeTurn and DataTurn work collectively within the Migration Manufacturing unit
For instance, in a legacy software that enables every buyer file to be related to 10 totally different telephone numbers, the unique schema may need been designed as a flat file, with every buyer file containing 10 separate telephone quantity fields (Phone_01, Phone_02, and so on.). Within the goal relational database, it is perhaps preferable to retailer clients’ telephone quantity info in a separate desk that hyperlinks on the client ID. On this manner, database designers can transition from a flat (and fewer versatile) knowledge construction to a relational one-to-many mannequin.
After all, making these sorts of adjustments has an influence on code refactoring, although. If knowledge constructions change, then queries should be modified to observe go well with. That is why DataTurn works collectively at the side of CodeTurn to make sure that refactored code is generated in such a manner that it might probably proceed to entry the correct knowledge, even when the underlying knowledge constructions have modified. As code is refactored and database tables and fields are mapped from the outdated system to the brand new one, the Astadia Migration Manufacturing unit mechanically generates an I/O module that handles SQL queries within the new system on the fly. 
On this manner, CodeTurn and DataTurn come collectively to type a strong mixture that allows refactoring and database migration to function as a seamless complete. 
The mainframe migration magic is accomplished with the remaining two parts within the Migration Manufacturing unit TestMatch and DataMatch.
TestMatch makes use of tracing capabilities inside supply IBM or Unisys platforms to file person exercise within the dwell manufacturing system. On this manner, the Migration Manufacturing unit’s check automation processes have entry to real-world check circumstances at any time, primarily based on precise utilization of the legacy system. TestMatch “replays” that person exercise within the goal system as an automatic check situation. Subsequent, TestMatch will evaluate the exercise traced on the mainframe with that of what is being replayed on the goal platform and flag any errors.
DataMatch then performs a comparability of the supply and goal databases. It adjusts for any modifications that may have been made to the goal knowledge schema as a part of the migration course of. It additionally stories any discrepancies, offering absolutely automated help for testing batch code this manner.
Astadia’s collaboration with AWS builds on an present relationship, together with Astadia’s participation within the AWS Market and the Public Sector Associate Program. Collectively, the businesses are offering a whole cloud providers and cloud administration portfolio that will give enterprise and authorities clients quick, versatile entry to the cloud.
Astadia’s new AWS Migration Manufacturing unit Service is absolutely licensed by Lockheed Martin as appropriate with their mainframe safety mannequin. It permits clients to attach their mainframes working CICS or IMS transactions straight into AWS Cloud with out modifying its functions or constructing an costly gateway.
