Cloud Compiling

Cloud Compiling, with its technology installed in Global 100 data centers for more than 20 years, extends the benefits of cloud computing to the IBM z/OS platform. Its family of virtualized IBM z/ OS language compilers eliminates or reduces the need for software licenses in your mainframe environment. Whether installed in your private cloud or externally hosted, Cloud Compiling delivers virtual compiling with all the benefits of cloud computing, including lower costs, improved efficiency, increased system controls and the ability to scale quickly.

Cloud Compiling is the only true cloud compiling solution developed for IBM Z, bringing costeffective compiling alternatives to the mainframe environment. Cloud Compiling’s innovative compiling technologies support COBOL, PL/I, FORTRAN and C/C++ programming languages.

Cloud Compiling offers managed turnkey secure cloud deployment, and in-house private cloud installation. The results: reduced expenses, increased operational efficiencies, and lower MSU usage throughout the entire enterprise, which can reduce your 4-hour SCRT average. Cloud Compiling directs your source code and any other pertinent information (e.g., copy members) to a remote z/OS compile machine provided by IBM, then returns the completed module to you. As a result, the cloud-based compiler performs the same functions as your existing compiler, but with a minimum of 50% license cost savings and all the benefits of Cloud Compiling.

Cloud Compiling helps eliminate peaks in mainframe budgets that cause fluctuations in the rolling 4-hour average (R4HA). Additionally, if you choose on-premises deployment, you may select a less critical LPAR to compile on, freeing resources allocated to more critical workloads.

Get your proof of concept: Our lightweight cloud-based compiler is quick to install and will reduce your MSU usage. V6 compiling can spike your R4HA but you can still control your budget by putting the resource in the cloud.

When installed in your private cloud, Cloud Compiling delivers virtual compiling for z/OS languages with all the benefits of cloud computing:
• No upfront investment
• Minimum of 50% cost savings in monthly compiler fees – immediately
• Greater systems control
• Increased flexibility
• Ability to scale quickly
