Heirloom Computing Speeds Legacy Modernization in the Cloud with First-of-its-Kind Job Scheduler
FREMONT, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
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 (News - Alert) Job Control Language
(JCL) as well as common scripting dialects, including UNIX shell and
"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.
