Atos will provide Lumen with a new mainframe platform to support its most critical applications. Three data centers operated by Lumen will be brought together into a single Atos-operated US hub to provide best-in-class infrastructure.

The mainframe-as-a-service solution, offers Lumen a ‘cloud-like’ mainframe scalability that provides everything from computing power to service management and innovation. Consumption-based charging allows Lumen to adjust the service as its capacity needs change. Atos will also provide 24/7 hardware, software and technical support alongside monitoring and operations.

Lumen and Atos will migrate the mainframe workloads into Atos’ Hub through carefully phased migration to ensure service levels are maintained at all times.

Michael Grunberg, CEO North America, Tech Foundations, Atos said “By transforming Lumen’s mainframe, we will bring the company security, agility, and the opportunity for innovation while supporting their business transformation objectives. We look forward to deepening the relationship and creating opportunities to extend our collaboration in the future.”

Chad Naeger, Lumen CIO said “Our mainframe is a central computing backbone and is pivotal to our business operations. It demands the highest level of stability and security to power our operations. We have entrusted Atos to modernize our Mainframe environment, confident in their expertise, experience, and ability to propel our transformation goals.”
