New Terminal Emulator from Rocket Software Brings Innovation to Users of Mission-Critical Systems

Rocket Software, a global software leader for IBM Z and IBM i, has announced the availability of Rocket Terminal Emulator. The new release, the company said, is the culmination of decades of investment in a critical and often-overlooked technology space.

According to Rocket, IBM Z, IBM i, and other virtual terminal, VT-based systems continue to be the cornerstones of business operations in companies around the world. While many users access these systems through enhanced user interfaces, many daily users, system administrators and power users interact directly with these applications through an emulator that enables access through a PC or mobile device.

Rudimentary emulators can hinder these users, creating frustration with limited configurability and cumbersome interfaces, and the resulting loss of productivity and increasing error rates compromise the core operational systems of the business. 

With remote and hybrid workforces becoming standard, terminal emulation is critical to operational efficiency and business continuity for core applications. Rocket Terminal Emulator is highly configurable, ensuring users can quickly and securely customize their terminal environment, whether accessing it through a desktop or browser-based client.

“Our years of investment in terminal emulators have delivered a feature-rich, highly configurable solution that enhances host access for users while keeping costs low,” said Christopher Wey, president of the Rocket business unit that develops cross-platform utilities. “We are offering this software upgrade at no cost to every Rocket terminal emulation customer, including BlueZone and Passport users, ensuring all Rocket customers have exceptional access to critical systems.”
