ZDNet – Larry Dignan – 6/5/18
CA Technologies and IBM have forged a partnership designed to make the mainframe more amenable to cloud workloads and DevOps approaches.
According to the companies, the partnership will combine IBM's mainframes with CA tools to develop applications, optimize performance and co-mingle workloads in the cloud.
The companies will jointly develop and sell services for IBM's Cloud Managed Services on z Systems, or zCloud. Mainframes are used for transaction heavy workloads and IBM has been working to bridge the systems with hybrid architectures.
