T3T, Inc., a leading provider of alternate solutions for mainframe computers, announced today at a Microsoft Modernization Conference the release of version 3.1 of their award winning Liberty Server software suite. In July, T3 received Microsoft’s Technology Award for Liberty Server at the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference (WPC) in Toronto, Canada.
Liberty Server is a software suite that enables mainframe-based COBOL CICS and Batch applications to run with little or no modification in a variety of Microsoft environments like Windows Server 2008 R2, SQL Server 2008 and 2012, .NET, and Microsoft’s Azure Cloud. The new platform eliminates very high mainframe software and hardware costs, provides a very fast ROI, and reduces total processing costs by as much as 90%. Liberty Server integrates with Fujitsu’s NetCOBOL Compiler and Runtime, which is included in the suite.
“Our developers took great care to embrace and maintain the capabilities of the mainframe while fully exploiting the richness of the target Windows and Azure Cloud environments. Coupled with substantial cost advantages over the mainframe platform and its scalability, a Liberty Server deployment will greatly benefit mainframe data centers of all sizes”, said Steven Friedman, CEO of T3T.
Liberty Server includes tools, technologies, and processes to automate the mainframe migration process. Liberty Server presents a faithful replication of CICS capabilities on the mainframe, including BMS mapping, so that retraining of users is unnecessary. Function keys and commands continue to operate just as they do on the mainframe. Batch functions produce the same results as on the mainframe with no changes required to JCL.
“Liberty Server Online (for CICS) brings new life to ‘green screen’ applications by allowing C# classes to participate in CICS transactions and presenting through a choice of HTML5, Silverlight, or Metro” said Bob Lair, T3’s Vice President for Development.
T3 is deploying Liberty Server 3.1 for a migration project now underway at City of Shreveport, LA.
T3 has provided alternate mainframe solutions for over 20 years. In 1999, T3 developed the popular tServer which enabled data centers to eliminate expensive and bulky traditional mainframe hardware by hosting OS/390 and VSE applications on Intel-based servers without modifications to the source code. Over 600 tServers were sold in 28 countries through 2007. Since 2008, T3 has been providing software and delivery services to help data centers completely migrate off the mainframe platform and onto a variety of Windows platforms. T3 is a privately held firm based in Tampa, FL. Additional information can be found at: http://www.t3t.com.
