Mainframe as a Service (MFaaS)

End-to-end Managed Mainframe Hosting and Migration Services

For organizations that process high-volume transactions, nothing can compare to the power and security of mainframe computing. However, rising support costs and a shrinking talent pool can present a challenge. CherryRoad can solve this with our Mainframe as a Service offering.

IBM Z mainframe cloud hosting

Mainframes are still the right choice:

  • Most mainframe platforms are still supported and have modern hardware available.
  • The cost of application migration can far exceed the cost of keeping existing mainframe systems.
  • The closed nature of mainframe systems can provide a level of security above other operating environments

Some Client Love

“We partnered with CherryRoad to implement Oracle Cloud for the City. Moving forward, Oracle Cloud will be the system of record at Roseville for all financial, payroll, and human resource transactions. It will serve as the centralized source of data, empowering staff to minimize manual processes and have access to a broader set of data needed to make timely informed decisions.”
~ Nafees Coleman, ERP Project Manager, City of Roseville
“This is the second time in which the University has partnered with CherryRoad to achieve our business and technology objectives. During both experiences, CherryRoad exceeded our expectations. They have clearly demonstrated that they are a caring organization that listens. They have provided us with consultants who understand that system implementation is a technical and human process and are talented at blending both beautifully.”

“As a tech-forward City, we are proud to utilize a digital tool which enhances our resident’s ability to be wholly involved. Whether it be to indicate budgetary priorities, share ideas, or to hear what fellow citizens want to share with their government, Digital Town Hall provides us a secure, easy-to-use, and digital forum to transact City business.”
~ Mayor Joseph M. DeStefano, City of Middletown, NY
“While it was not our plan to have our central office staff work remotely at the drop of a hat, we thankfully had CherryRoad’s Shark UTM® Remote Workplace at our disposal. In a matter of hours we created accounts for all of our central office staff and gave them connections to their desktops. It’s working out amazingly well and has provided invaluable flexibility in coping with the ever-changing work conditions we’re all facing.”
