Heirloom Computing Speeds Legacy Modernization in the Cloud with First-of-its-Kind Job Scheduler

Heirloom Computing Inc. today announced a first-of-its-kind scheduler to run batch jobs on ELPaaS, Heirloom’s Platform-as-a-Service for moving mission-critical enterprise applications to the cloud.

The Heirloom Job Scheduler works with Heirloom’s Job Entry Subsystem (JES) to make it easier and much less expensive for IT managers to manage their legacy applications in the cloud. Heirloom offers full support for legacy batch job languages such as IBM Job Control Language (JCL) as well as common scripting dialects, including UNIX shell and Python.

“We’ve been hearing from IT managers that they would really like the ability to schedule jobs to run in the cloud. Heirloom’s new scheduler solves that problem,” said Gary Crook, CEO of Heirloom Computing.

The Heirloom cloud-based Job Scheduler reduces IT costs by making cloud-based legacy modernization more efficient and affordable. Cloud instances are started and stopped by the scheduler during a “batch window.” Fully compatible with IT operations today, the scheduler and the Job Entry Subsystem divide jobs into “classes” of resources (CPU, database, network), manages concurrency among a large pool of resources, and collects job “report” output for later viewing, printing or distribution from a central cloud-based Web portal. The scheduler frees up datacenter human resources, speeds delivering of mission-critical information and reports, and leads to greater application service levels.

“Heirloom’s cloud-based job scheduler is a real step forward in the modernization of legacy applications,” said Mark Haynie, Chief Technology Officer for Heirloom Computing. “Scheduled workloads that are more intensive are given more cloud resources to finish within the batch window, dramatically reducing the cost of maintaining computing resources that are only used to run large jobs.”

Heirloom Computing is on a mission to efficiently modernize the world’s business-critical enterprise software applications. Heirloom seamlessly migrates legacy systems to private and public cloud computing infrastructures, enabling IT departments to reap the cost benefits of cloud computing and satisfy user demands for applications accessible via web browsers and mobile devices.

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...
The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform and how we integrate our thinking to solve complicated problems. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, demonstrated how to move beyond today's coding paradigm and sh...
What are the new priorities for the connected business? First: businesses need to think differently about the types of connections they will need to make – these span well beyond the traditional app to app into more modern forms of integration including SaaS integrations, mobile integrations, APIs, device integration and Big Data integration. It’s important these are unified together vs. doing them all piecemeal. Second, these types of connections need to be simple to design, adapt and configure...
Cloud computing delivers on-demand resources that provide businesses with flexibility and cost-savings. The challenge in moving workloads to the cloud has been the cost and complexity of ensuring the initial and ongoing security and regulatory (PCI, HIPAA, FFIEC) compliance across private and public clouds. Manual security compliance is slow, prone to human error, and represents over 50% of the cost of managing cloud applications. Determining how to automate cloud security compliance is critical...
