- Veryant, the COBOL and Java technology innovator, today announced that it is the first HP AllianceONE Partner to offer COBOL software certified to meet HP's "Converged Infrastructure Ready" criteria. This certification validates that vCOBOL Enterprise tested successfully on images of HP-UX, Red Hat Enterprise Linux, and Windows Server 2008 Enterprise Edition operating systems that were provisioned in the cloud using an HP Converged Infrastructure.
Veryant validated vCOBOL in the HP Cloud Operating Environment (CLOE), as part of the AllianceONE partner program. CLOE provides HP partners with highly automated, secure, self-service access to virtual machines, with which partners can test, port, debug, verify and tune applications on multiple platforms and configurations. This significantly reduces the risk to customers for deploying joint solutions in a virtualized environment.
vCOBOL delivers a powerful platform to migrate COBOL applications off IBM mainframes as part of strategic cost-cutting and consolidation initiatives. It is tightly integrated with UniKix Mainframe Rehosting software from Clerity Solutions. The innovative Java Platform, Enterprise Edition-based runtime environment of vCOBOL takes full advantage of 32-bit and 64-bit architectures and enables programmers to natively call legacy COBOL programs from Java Servlets, Web Services, Enterprise JavaBeans, or any other Java program, offering an opportunity for true ongoing application modernization.
"vCOBOL Enterprise provides a powerful environment to develop and deploy robust, business-critical COBOL applications across HP’s Linux, HP-UX, and Microsoft Windows based systems," said Dovid Lubin, vice president of Technical Operations at Veryant. "vCOBOL's balance of COBOL and Java technology make it the ideal COBOL platform for public and private enterprise cloud environments."
Veryant is an HP AllianceONE partner that helps customers increase business productivity with complete and cost effective environments for COBOL application development, deployment and modernization. By demonstrating its expertise in delivering solutions that are Converged Infrastructure compliant, Veryant enables businesses to deploy vCOBOL Enterprise on the HP Converged Infrastructure platform with confidence.
