Mainframe to Cloud Transition

Softlab utilized its expertise on GCP to assist an insurance company with the mainframe to cloud transition, including solution and architecture design, system implementation, integration, migration, and monitoring of the entire production system.

CLOUD SOLUTIONS

Softlab started with an architectural modernization journey to improve the availability, reliability, and performance of the system. The most critical agency application running on an IBM DB2z/OS database on the mainframe was replaced with Cloud SQL. Data migration was performed using the serverless Cloud Dataflow, while the application refactored to run on a GKE container architecture. Finally, disaster recovery plans were put in place to ensure business continuity.

Softlab achieved improved scalability and performance of the system, reduced maintenance and running costs, and gained customer trust, making Softlab the preferred partner to migrate the remaining on-premise components to GCP. Softlab manages the entire production environment of the customer.

 

Softlab utilized Google Cloud Platform, Google Kubernetes Engine, Google Cloud SQL, Google Compute Engine, Google Cloud Dataflow, and Google Cloud Monitoring for this project.
