Mainframe Innovation to Power Your Cloud-Based Future

Model9 migrates mainframe data directly to any object storage - on-prem or in the cloud - and allows it to be used with cloud applications.

Modernize Your Mainframe Infrastructure

Simplify and boost performance of your backup, archive and DR:

  • Replace backup, tapes and VTL software with on-prem or cloud-based data management
  • Reduce processes elapsed times with cloud-based infrastructure

Analyze Mainframe Data In the Cloud

Liberate mainframe data and use it with cloud-based AI & BI applications:

  • Get your mission critical mainframe data to the cloud 
  • Convert it into open system format in the cloud environment, , not the mainframe environment

Data-led Cloud Migration

Accelerate and simplify painful migration projects with a data-first approach:

  • Save backup and archival data directly to the cloud
  • No need to change your current Mainframe applications
