1 SOLUTION BRIEF Intel Xeon Processor-based Servers Mainframe Migration Re-Hosting Mainframe Applications on Intel Xeon Processor-based Servers A Proven Methodology for Mainframe Migration The mainframe has been around for decades and is considered by many to be the ultimate legacy platform for scale-up computing. These monolithic systems have proven their ability to deliver the performance, scalability, security, manageability, and high availability large businesses demand for their core transactional and database applications. Yet the high costs associated with scaling and adapting mainframe environments have many companies looking for ways to extend or replace their mainframes with alternative platforms that improve agility and reduce costs without sacrificing quality of service (QoS). Since moving workloads off a mainframe often represents a fundamental shift in IT strategy, a comprehensive and systematic approach is needed to minimize cost and risk. This paper describes a methodology (Figure 1) that has been used successfully for mainframe migrations. It offers a useful starting point for business and IT decision makers looking for ways to improve IT capability and agility, without sacrificing QoS and without incurring the high cost of expanding an existing mainframe environment. Getting Started To ensure business and technical issues are thoroughly explored, an interdisciplinary approach is necessary. The initial project team should include business managers, business analysts, system and application architects, and IT operational staff. Support from executives is also imperative because a mainframe migration will impact multiple business units. Workshop Assessment Methodology Approach Evaluate & Analyze Solutions Overview Plan Definition Business & Financial Overview Solution Design 1 2 Unless the team has experience with mainframe migrations, engaging with a consultant is highly recommended. Many system integrators, independent software vendors (ISVs), and hardware suppliers have proven sets of tools and extensive experience with mainframe migrations. Migration Deployment Proof of Concept Infrastructure Deployment Solution Test Application Roll-Out System Optimization Operations & Monitoring 3 4 A technical and planning workshop from suppliers should be a first step. It will provide a solid foundation for an efficient and effective migration. Outsourcing some or all of the migration may also be a good choice, depending on time constraints and the availability of internal resources. Figure 1. Following a proven migration methodology helps to reduce cost and risk and accelerate time to benefits.

2 Mainframe Migration in the Real World HSBC One of the World s Largest Banks When heavy workloads from a new suite of loan applications created performance and reliability issues for an HSBC mainframe in Mexico City, the company had a choice to make: either upgrade the mainframe or migrate existing workloads onto an alternative platform. After a thorough review of alternatives and consultation with Intel, HSBC Mexico used the methodology outlined in this paper to re-host the applications on Intel Xeon processorbased servers running Linux*. The resulting migration met or exceeded all of HSBC s goals. Performance and uptime were improved, delivering a better experience to customers and branch office personnel. Mainframe workloads were reduced by 2,000 MIPS and monthly service charges by 70 percent. 1, Business flexibility was increased because the new solutions made it easier to scale and adapt applications. Establishing Goals Establishing clear goals is important to keep the project on track and aligned with business priorities and needs. Goals should be specific and, when possible, quantitative to provide a framework for weighing alternatives throughout the planning process. Issues to consider include business growth, cost reduction, IT efficiency and agility, and governance, including risk management. A mainframe migration of modern applications, such as Java-based solutions, can deliver significant value across all these areas. Understanding business and IT priorities is critical to ensure that projects remain aligned with the needs of the business. Assessing the Current Environment Once goals are established, a comprehensive assessment of the current business, technical, and operational infrastructure environments must be performed (Figure 2). This assessment should be comprehensive and thorough because it provides the foundation for understanding end-to-end solution requirements. It should include physical, logical, and Integrated Assessment solution architectures across all systems. It should also include production, staging, disaster recovery, quality assurance, and development environments, as well as key mainframe interfaces, system interdependencies, and performance bottlenecks. Future requirements should also be evaluated with respect to the current solution. The IT industry has developed a number of infrastructure assessment and inventory tools to help with hardware and application migrations. These tools range from simple spreadsheets to advanced programs that may include automated data center discovery. Depending on the selected tool, it may measure system workloads, resource utilization, and dependency mapping. It may also discover physical and virtual IT assets, applications, and the relationships between them. The resulting assessment typically includes detailed reports and graphs, and can be useful for system design and for identifying opportunities to virtualize infrastructure and reduce overall costs. For a detailed technical discussion of the HSBC mainframe migration, read the Intel white paper at en/mission-critical/mission-criticalmeeting-todays-it-challenges.html Integrated System Assessment Business Solutions & Applications Staging & Development Systems Backup Systems Storage Devices Network I/O Database Application Services Commercial and Custom Applications Operating System Enterprise Infrastructure Software Utilities, IT Operational Tools Hardware Devices, Software Drivers IT Operations & Management System Performance Infrastructure Performance IT Management Framework Integrated Solution and Infrastructure Assessment Figure 2. A comprehensive and integrated assessment of the existing infrastructure provides a foundation for planning an efficient, low-risk migration. 2

3 Creating the Proposal Creating a proposal will typically require evaluating multiple options for meeting current and future needs. Should custom applications be rewritten, re-factored, or replaced? Should new infrastructure be scaled up, scaled out, or virtualized? Should a private cloud architecture be considered? Technical feasibility should be evaluated for each option, including the challenges associated with transitioning to the new solution. If some applications will remain on the mainframe, it will be necessary to explore options for integration, including hardware, software, and operational issues. Once technical feasibility is confirmed, return on investment (ROI) and total cost of ownership (TCO) analyses should be performed for the solutions that are most feasible and have the highest business migration priorities. This will help quantify the decision-making process. Technical and financial assessments should include sufficient detail to identify significant risks that could potentially impact the success of the project. 120,000 90,000 60,000 30,000 0 Score (Higher is better) SPECweb* Intel Xeon processor 3.80 GHz (2 MB L2, 800 MHz FSB, single core) Intel Xeon processor 5160 (3.0 GHz, 4 MB L2, 1333 MHz FSB, dual core) Intel Xeon processor X5460 (3.16 GHz, 2x6 MB L2, 1333 MHz FSB, quad core) Intel Xeon processor X5570 (2.93 GHz, 8 MB L3, 6.4 GT/s, quad core) Intel Xeon processor X5680 (3.33 GHz, 12 MB L3 cache, 6.4 GT/s, six core) Figure 3. Web server performance has increased substantially for two-socket Intel Xeon processor-based servers. The latest systems based on the Intel Xeon processor 5600 series are ideal for processing large numbers of concurrent user requests, as demonstrated by published results on the SPECWeb*2005 benchmark. 2, Developing the Solution Architecture An interdisciplinary approach is required to develop a detailed solution architecture and migration plan. The team should include system architects, application architects, data center IT operations personnel, database administrators, and quality assurance staff. It should also include business unit representatives to ensure the proposed architecture is well aligned with current and projected business needs. IBM and other mainframe vendors offer detailed and proven design options for deploying both horizontally and vertically scaled solutions. In many cases, a twotier or three-tier architecture will be optimal. Selecting best-fit Intel Xeon processor-based servers for the new solution will depend on specific workloads, performance requirements, and solution architectures. The following guidelines will be helpful in many scenarios. Web Servers. Web requests can be distributed efficiently across multiple two-socket Intel Xeon processor 5600 series-based servers. Performance has increased substantially in the two-socket server space in recent years, and today s systems are well suited for processing large numbers of concurrent user requests (Figure 3). Application and Database Servers. Four-socket, eight-socket, and larger servers based on the Intel Xeon processor E7 family provide scalable performance per system to support heavy application and database workloads. With up to two terabytes of memory and a high-speed, point-topoint interconnect system, these servers support exceptionally fast processing for high-volume transaction workloads (Figure 4). The tightly-integrated interconnect system also provides reliability, availability, and serviceability (RAS) for mission-critical environments through features such as advanced error correction and automated link recovery. 3

4 Unless the mainframe is being decommissioned, it may be necessary to access mainframe data and manage transactions across the new systems and solutions and the mainframe environment. Many options are available, such as IBM CICS* Transaction Gateway and IBM MQ* Series message-oriented middleware. These and other options are easily deployed on Intel Xeon processor-based servers. They provide flexible, scalable, and secure options for accessing information and managing transactions and applications on distributed systems. 24,000 (Higher is better) ,000,000 3,500,000 BOPS (Higher is better) ,000,000 16, ,500,000 2,000, , Socket SPECjAppServer* Socket 1,500,000 1,000, , Socket SPECjbb* Socket Intel Xeon processor X7350 (8 M cache, 2.9 GHz, 1066 MHz FSB) Intel Xeon processor X7460 (16 M cache, 2.66 GHz, 1066 MHz FSB Intel QPI - Intel QuickPath Interconnect Intel Xeon processor X714OM (16 M cache, 3.40 GHz, 800 MHz FSB) Intel Xeon processor X7350 (8 M cache, 2.93 GHz, 1066 MHz FSB) Intel Xeon processor X7460 (16 M cache, 2.66 GHz, 1066 MHz FSB) Figure 4. Four-socket, eight-socket, and larger Intel Xeon processor-based servers deliver scalable performance for demanding Java applications, as demonstrated by published results on the SPECjAppServer2004 and SPECjbb2005 benchmarks. 4

5 Proof-of-Concept (PoC) Testing When migrating custom applications, PoC testing will help technical teams identify and address potential design and operational issues early in the design and migration processes. For example, targeted PoCs may be appropriate to validate performance, scalability, transaction management, and data access for the new solution. However, extensive PoCs may not be necessary when migrating commercial applications. ISVs can often provide reference designs and sizing guides, as well as best practice recommendations that have been proven worldwide across numerous customer implementations. Moving to Production In moving to production, a staged and phased transition is generally preferable. A pilot deployment using a subset of applications can allow IT to identify and address problems before they affect the broader business environment. It can also provide IT with a good opportunity to integrate the new solution into the broader development and quality assurance environments and to integrate and test new operational tools, scripts, utilities, and processes. A successful pilot may require considerable collaboration among multiple groups and teams, and time and dedicated resources should be allocated accordingly. Conclusion Migrating modern workloads from a mainframe to Intel Xeon processorbased servers can deliver fundamental advantages, including better performance and scalability, improved business and IT agility, and lower capital and operating costs. Businesses have been migrating mainframe applications onto distributed, horizontally scalable solutions for years. Newer eight-socket and larger servers based on the Intel Xeon processor E7 family deliver high-end scalability and advanced reliability for both vertically and horizontally scalable solutions, and are well suited for a broad range of workloads currently running in many mainframe environments. A successful migration requires detailed planning, commitment, a team effort by multiple business and technical teams, and direct support from senior management. Applying a comprehensive, step-bystep approach using a proven migration methodology is essential for coordinating business and IT efforts to deliver desired benefits, while managing costs and risks. Professional services and support are available from leading system integrators, ISVs, and hardware suppliers around the world, many of whom have extensive experience in mainframe migration. 5
