Continuous Discussions (#c9d9) Podcast, Episode 74: DevOps for Mainframes

This morning on our Continuous Discussions (#c9d9) podcast, we discussed DevOps in a Mainframe world.

In the 1960 and 70’s, Mainframes ruled the data center. They are a big beasts for sure, but they are not necessarily dinosaurs.

Powering some of the largest sites and operations in the world – Mainframes get the work done and are here to stay for both legacy and new, large scale applications.

  • How can you modernize Mainframe-based applications?
  • Can DevOps ways of working coexist with Mainframe?
  • What are some challenges and common patterns you’ll likely see on your journey?
