z/OS & zLinux Operations
Blue Chip can host your mainframe in our purpose-built tier 4 by design data centre. Our mainframe co-location service includes rack space, power, N+1 generators & UPS systems and powerful air-conditioning.
Organisations depend on mainframes for reliable, heavy-duty data and transaction processing - work that is often mission critical. However, managing mainframes in-house can be highly expensive. It often involves substantial and ongoing investment in software, hardware, facilities and support.
Blue Chip’s fully managed service can be used to manage your mainframe from end-to-end, whether it’s sat within your data centre, hosted in one of Blue Chip’s data centres, or running on Blue Chip’s shared cloud mainframe infrastructure. Whatever option you choose, we can provide you with 24x7x365 operational monitoring and support.
