Google Cloud acquires Cornerstone

Google Cloud has acquired mainframe application specialist, Cornerstone Technology, to help customers migrate their mainframe workloads to Google Cloud.

“As the industry increasingly builds applications as a set of services, many customers want to break their mainframe monolith programs into either Java monoliths or Java microservices,” said Howard Weale, Google’s director of transformation.

“This approach to application modernisation is at the heart of the Cornerstone toolset.”
