Rocket Support for Zowe provides customers with 24/7 support for Zowe core components, improved security, and exclusive desktop applications, according to the vendor.

Rocket Support for Zowe also provides exclusive virtual desktop applications like Rocket USS Process Manager, which monitors all UNIX System Services, the operating system host to much of Zowe.

More exclusive desktop applications will continue to become available in the near and long term as Rocket Software continuously improves Rocket Support for Zowe.

Rocket Support for Zowe offers unique synergies when used with Rocket Open AppDev for Z, an open-source DevOps solution providing services and support for over 20 open-source languages and tools—including Git, Python, cURL, and Bash—that enable the mainframe to be another valuable platform in a DevOps infrastructure.

Rocket Support for Zowe will enable any developer to improve upon and expedite mainframe application development and delivery with secure and supported open-source software innovation for z/OS.
