Infinite Releases New AS/400 Migration Toolset Family, Infinite i
Infinite i migrates and deploys RPG or COBOL applications written for IBM System i (AS/400) to Red Hat 64-bit Linux
June 2, 2011-LAGUNA NIGUEL, CALIFORNIA, USA, BUENOS AIRES de ARGENTINA, MADRID de ESPANA. Infinite Corporation, a global IT integrator, has announced today that it has released the latest version of its popular AS/400 migration toolset.
Linux Version of AS/400 applications… No rewrites required.
Infinite i is a toolset that migrates AS/400 applications to Linux from IBM i OS. The latest release deploys RPG or COBOL applications written for the IBM System i (AS/400) platform to Red Hat 64-bit Linux. The new product is much faster in terms of processing power and read/write speed than previous 32-bit products. Infinite i migrates RPG or COBOL applications by recompiling and deploying them natively over Linux. The AS/400 applications don’t have to be rewritten or translated. They are migrated natively and maintain source code integrity. It is simply the easiest, fastest, least cost method for migrating AS/400-based applications. No rewrites required.
Infinite i executes on Red Hat Enterprise Linux Version 6.1 (RHEL) and includes Single Root I/O Virtualization (SR-IOV), which allows multiple guests to share a hardware device without compromising performance. The new platform offers increasingly sophisticated virtualization management, provisioning, and deployment tools.
Aside from virtualization, Infinite emphasizes its commitment to scalability and energy efficiency. Infinite i operating will have no difficulty powering new servers with 64 processor cores and 2TB of memory, the company says. It can support a theoretical maximum of 16TB of physical memory, assuming that anybody wanted to build an AS/400 server with such specifications. The operating system can automatically put unused cores into a low-power state until they are needed, thus conserving valuable energy and reducing power costs.
By incorporating virtualization technology from Red Hat with Infinite i’s latest product family, ISV’s and end-users alike will benefit from built-in HA/DR. The failover tools that are incorporated with the new product family provide faster failover with lower hardware costs and no-extra charge software licensing or maintenance fees for High Availability or Disaster Recovery.
Industry Standard Hardware
Infinite i is designed to deploy on Industry Standard X86 Servers. Whether the hardware of choice is IBM X Series, HP ProLiant Blades or Dell Poweredge, Infinite i is designed to allow AS/400 applications to be deployed on low-cost, high performance servers.
