Need a dedicated mainframe environment? Look no further than PopUp Mainframe

For distributed applications, it is now routine and often expected that a dedicated environment can be spun up anytime one is required. This is in line with the agile and DevOps ways of working which are becoming ubiquitous in the distributed world. However, this has not commonly been the case for mainframe (and certainly is not widely implemented yet).

 

Non-prod mainframe environments are hard to get hold of!

 

Usually, mainframe test environments run on dedicated LPARs with typically fixed MIPS allocation. As these test environments are “sharing” the mainframe resources with prod environments, there is a strict quota with tight restrictions on usage. The total mainframe capacity (including test capacity) cannot be extended without purchasing more resources at great cost.

 

This lack of mainframe test environments necessitates tight scheduling and control so the environments can be shared. Many organisations have a mainframe-skilled environment management team for this purpose, and in many cases, inefficient processes governing mainframe test environment setup and requests.

Mainframe testing: What’s the difference between PopUp Mainframe and physical mainframe?

 

The challenge of testing in the mainframe world

Modern development teams require agile, flexible environments to be able to deliver quick change reliably and enable business competitiveness. But the reality is that fixed, shared mainframe environments cause environment bottlenecks that hinder projects, slow time to market, and result in quality issues and spiralling costs.

The shortage of mainframe test environments is a big blocker to any project across the enterprise which relies on mainframe. Many projects involve a change only in the “front end” but depend on testing the “back end” (i.e. mainframe) even when it is not changing, and suffer from lack of mainframe test environments.

 

How does PopUp MainframeTM solve this problem?

Introducing PopUp Mainframe

 
We are very excited to introduce the Sandhata PopUp MainframeTM – a brand new offering which finally removes the bottleneck of mainframe test environments by making mainframe self-service a reality.

Mainframe environments are expensive to buy and time-consuming to build and maintain. This leads to a shortage of mainframe test environments, project conflicts and slow production releases and time-to-market.
