Mainframe, High Performance (HPC) and Quantum Computing

Hybrid On-Prem & Cloud Architecture – Migration & Modernization Strategies

Tuesday October 19

11:50 – 3:30 ET, 8:50 – 12:30 PT

Microsoft, AWS, Google and IBM discuss how to modernize and migrate mainframe, high performance computing (HPC) and high-volume transaction applications, that share some common features:

  • Low Latency
  • Five 9 Reliability/Uptime
  • Mission Critical
  • Computing, Performance & Data Intensive

This is a unique opportunity to understand solutions from the four most influential technology/cloud providers. By attending you will:

  • Learn how to build an optimized hybrid architecture that integrates on-prem hardware and software, plus cloud computing capabilities.
  • Analyze case studies that demonstrate how a hybrid cloud platform meets – and often exceeds – the speed and performance of on-prem hardware/software only, plus how GCP, AWS and Azure cloud services integrate with your IBM mainframe.
  • Understand the financial tradeoffs between upgrading existing on-prem solutions – upfront capital expenses plus data center/physical infrastructure support costs – versus a pay-for-what-you-need cloud model.
  • Develop strategies to address a growing shortage of mainframe programmers – how will you maintain and/or update legacy systems?

There will be a special discussion on Quantum Computing, which offers the promise of exponential improvements in computational speed/power and can revolutionize applications currently handled by mainframe and HPC platforms.
