Mainframes (often colloquially referred to as Big Iron[1]) are powerful computers used mainly by large organizations for critical applications, typically bulk data processing such as census, industry and consumer statistics, enterprise resource planning, and financial transaction processing.

The term mainframe is also seen on early microcomputer ads for the housing of kit computers, but today we use the term case in that sense.
