The Open Mainframe Project (OMP) this week announced that Zowe, an open source software framework for the mainframe, is now production ready less than six months after it was first launched.
Zowe was first introduced last August as an integration platform for the next generation of tools for administration, management and development on z/OS mainframes. Zowe 1.0 consists of core technologies enabling modern interfaces for Web applications on z/OS, a new command line interface, and expansion of platform REST API capabilities.
"Mainframes are the foundation of business in every industry," John Mertic, director of program management for the Linux Foundation and Open Mainframe Project, said in a statement. "Zowe breathes life into mainframes and offers innovative possibilities for next generation applications."
"With Zowe 1.0, we're developing secure, reliable and scalable computing that will ensure sustainability of mainframes for many years to come," Mertic added.
