COBOL Cloud

Think about all those mainframe applications moved off the mainframe into open systems cloud computing. Well, Micro Focus is offering enterprise cloud for mainframe COBOL applications that are re-platformed off the mainframe: http://cloudservices.microfocus.com/main/default.aspx/MFECS/MFECS.html Pretty interesting given that the mainframe was the original cloud platform. It just that it used TSO(time sharing option), OS390, VSAM, CICS, IMS-TM, JCL, ISM-DB, and in some cases DB2. Some of these technologies (like VSAM) are just not flexible and easy to retrieve access. On a related note, Micro Focus is 'in play'. Rumors of potential buy out by private equity or even IBM or Oracle.
