Google Cloud acquires IT company Cornerstone Technology to Migrate Mainframe workloads to Cloud

Google Cloud acquires IT company Cornerstone Technology

Google has recently acquired Cornerstone Technology in order to better help customers migrate their mainframe workloads to Google Cloud.

Cornerstone, which was set up in the year 1989, is a Dutch company that helps enterprises to migrate their legacy workloads from mainframes to public clouds. The firm aims to provide customers with an automated and managed migration to a more scalable, modern platform of their choice.

It has developed the G4 Analyser and G4 Dashboard, which customers can use to get detailed, up to date, and consistent metrics to support the IT business decisions.

Executive Opinion

Chief Technology Officer of Boa Vista, Ricardo Orlando, said, "Migrating to a new services architecture helps us innovate faster and save on compute costs. We’re migrating both our AS/400 and z/OS systems to more modern technologies like Java and SQL databases. Google Cloud is helping us realize new revenue streams and more effectively deploy our resources."

Senior Vice President, Enterprise Infrastructure, Cloud, Developers and Alliances, IDC, Matt Eastwood, said, "Easy mainframe migration will go a long way as Google attracts large enterprises to its cloud. Google Cloud is listening to its customers and meeting them where they are, steadily improving its services and attracting businesses across industries."

Integrating Cornerstone into Google Cloud

Cornerstone will bring a number of its solutions to customers to help them modernize their infrastructure and application on Google Cloud. The migration roadmap development from Cornerstone will help users to conduct an assessment of their entire mainframe environment, find the macro and microservices and create a roadmap to modern services architecture.

Cornerstone also enables the customers to convert languages and databases to prepare applications for modern environments while offering automated data migration that allows the mainframe data to be easily moved.

The news just revealed into the market after Google Cloud announced support for the IBM Power Systems, which was another bid to help enterprises move the legacy systems to the cloud.

Last year, Google acquired  Data Migration startup, Alooma, to acelerate its Cloud Business
