Go From Mainframe to Cloud in Minutes

Mission-critical data lives on your mainframe. But you want to get it into the cloud, so you can use it to drive your business forward.

Sola Mainframe APIs make it possible to go from mainframe to cloud in minutes. And you can do it without sacrificing your mainframe, racking up costs, or taking unnecessary risks.

With Sola, you can leave your applications and data on the mainframe — and make them available to modern applications running in the cloud.

You can do this with Sola by exposing mainframe data and applications using SOAP and REST APIs. As a result, you can leverage decades-worth investment in the mainframe — without needing to replicate data or face new risks to your business.

Mainframe to Cloud in Minutes

Simplify API Enablement on Your Mainframe

Sola Mainframe API middleware makes API enablement easy. You can leave your mainframe applications where they are and seamlessly incorporate them in your enterprise API ecosystem with REST and SOAP APIs.

Sola is easy to use. Your mainframe developers can start producing APIs from their legacy programs and applications quickly. And because Sola is browser-based, you don’t need to worry about installing Eclipse in order to access your mainframe — like you would with other solutions.

With Sola Mainframe, you gain the performance and scalability of the mainframe — without adding another middle tier layer. This ensures stability and resilience.

Plus, with Sola Mainframe’s API enablement, you can quickly create and deploy secure microservices based on mainframe data. This gives your business greater agility and flexibility for creating new functionality in modern applications.

Key Features of Sola Mainframe

Access Mainframe Applications and Data as APIs

Sola makes it easy to access legacy applications as APIs through Sola Run-Time.

Sola Run-Time gives you three options:

  • Traditional mainframe architecture (Assembler/COBOL) that can run on one or multiple CICS regions on the mainframe.
  • Java that can run under CICS as an OSGI or Liberty Profile model — both of which are zIIP eligible.
  • Java that can run on mainframe USS or off the mainframe altogether.

Add Automation to the Mainframe

Sola Developer is a JEE web browser application. It provides the tools and framework necessary to create APIs — automatically.

Plus, Sola Developer automates the creation of artifacts, Swagger and Open API, RAML, WSDL runtime data, and more.
