Are you still running core infrastructure from the days of Friend’s Reunited, Arsenal going unbeaten and Grandstand? IBM Power clearly has longevity but the risks and costs of support increase significantly over time. If you are running core business applications on ageing AIX or IBM i infrastructures or are struggling with system administration or DB […]
Is there a future for Unix? Unix is not dead. It still runs many of the core systems for the world’s largest companies and multiple SMEs across multiple industries. However as Unix migration and cloud specialists we often get asked what is the future of AIX, HPUX and Solaris. From a longevity perspective its interesting […]
Sounds a basic question but we have seen several well intentioned AI projects stall as objectives get blurred.

Naturally attention turned to IBM’s AIX. A recent article (albeit supported with […]
How many years ago was your DR solution designed and is it still fit for purpose in today’s environment? Can you recover your systems and applications to the desired recovery points and times? We are seeing many situations where DR solutions are no longer fit for purpose having been designed with different objectives in mind. […]
So January starts and many are faced with tighter budgets, from which new projects are supposed to be funded (which often means completing last year’s projects let alone looking at new AI or cognitive analytic initiatives). Compounding this will most likely be a large maintenance bill for your AIX, HPUX or Solaris Unix infrastructure that […]
As a cloud and hosting provider a reliable and robust server infrastructure is key to our clients. ITIC recently published their mid-year update on their Global Reliability Survey (this is not sponsored by any vendor to allow neutrality), ranking the most reliable servers. https://cloud.kapostcontent.net/pub/a493986a-98ae-4d7f-8437-a383bad7895f/itic-2017-global-server-hardware-server-os-reliability-report.pdf?kui=7m9-tmFJVZ9pJR_hn4LP-w At L3C our infrastructure is built on IBM Power, Lenovo x86 and […]
