Model9, a member of IBM’s Partners in Development Program, has announced the acquisition of an IBM z15 mainframe server for an undisclosed sum of money. Through this acquisition Model9 hopes to ensure that its data transportation and management software remains at the cutting edge in terms of performance, reliability, and ease of use.
Maintec, a global provider of mainframe outsourcing and data center management provided installation services and was chosen as Model9’s Mainframe Managed Service Partner.
Model9 helps companies benefit from cloud economics and accelerate the adoption of hybrid cloud technologies by modernizing mainframe data management and business intelligence. Its proprietary software-only approach securely distributes mainframe data to any cloud or on-premises storage platform, obviating the need for physical and virtual tape and allowing for secure integration with advanced analytics tools.
The z15 would keep Model9 up to date with mainframe practices and difficulties, as well as ensuring usability and dependability so that solutions are tailored to meet real-world requirements.
“The Model9 z15 will be a powerful asset for our product development and quality assurance programs,” said Gil Peleg, Founder and CEO of Model9. “The acquisition of our own z15 is symbolic of our increasing investment in support of the mainframe market and, ultimately, in serving our customers.”
Mainframe Assets, Cloud Capabilities
Throughout the pandemic, Model9 has tripled in size, both in terms of customers and manpower, as businesses strive to optimize the value of their mainframe assets while simultaneously exploiting the cloud’s capabilities.
Leading Global 2000 and Forbes 500 firms rely on Model9. The company is an IBM Business Partner, as well as an AWS Technology Partner. Leading global corporations from the financial, transportation & aviation, government, and retail sectors, all of which are members of the Global 2000, are among Model9’s clients. Model9’s presence has recently grown in Japan, Australia, and South Africa.
