Reduce MIPS consumption on your mainframe
The processing power your mainframe uses, and the associated financial costs of that power, is staggering. OpenFrame can change that.
MIPS is a unit of computing speed equivalent to a million instructions per second, and the common measurement of CPU resource consumption. This unit of measurement is often associated with batch processing and online transaction processing. Depending on how long your mainframe and its applications have been running, your MIPS can easily measure in the thousands or the tens of thousands.
Your company’s MIPS is growing day-by-day. A 2015 Science of Computer Programming article reported that the amount of MIPS used by most large organizations should expect to increase 20% annually. On average, each MIPS costs $3,285 per year to a company. So if your organization is running 5,000 MIPS annually and this increases by just 10%, the incremental costs would run well over $1.3 million every year.
