Sun Microsystems, Inc. announced new upgrades to its mainframe rehosting software, Sun Mainframe Transaction Processing Software 8.0 (SunMTP 8.0) and Sun Mainframe Batch Manager Software 10.0 (SunMBM 10.0). The enhanced offerings will provide enterprises cost savings, tighter security and greater functionality when migrating legacy applications from a mainframe to Sun servers running the robust Solaris operating environment.

Through the SunMTP and the SunMBM software, Sun’s mainframe rehosting solutions enable customers to run existing mainframe CICS, COBOL and batch applications – commonly found in commercial banking and insurance, manufacturing, retail and government – virtually unmodified but in a contemporary computing environment.

New product features offered through SunMTP 8.0 and SunMBM 10.0 include mainframe-like security without mainframe costs, higher levels of availability enabled by Sun Cluster 3.0 capabilities, enhanced interoperability between business-critical Java-based applications and legacy programs and flexibility to administer the system from virtually anywhere on the network.
