Have AIX, AS/400 on Site? Get More From Them In Azure Now
Now you can finally bring your AIX and AS/400 workloads into Azure
Skytap on Azure provides an essential piece in the transformational jigsaw for many organisations by bringing IBM AIX and IBM i (aka AS/400) workloads into Azure. For many, these still critical and often incorrectly classed as legacy environments, have had to remain on premise demanding CAPEX budgets for upgrades and maintenance, while limiting agility.
Additionally, Skytap on Azure now allows AIX and IBM i environments to be brought into a modern cloud world. Power servers are now located within Azure data centres and ExpressRoute communications between Azure and Skytap environments virtually eliminates latency. These key workloads can now be fully integrated with your Azure environments and also benefit from Azure native services such as advanced analytics, AI/ML and Azure SQL to better utilise AIX and IBM i data.
L3C will build and migrate your AIX and IBM i workloads to Skytap on Azure allowing you to break the hardware refresh and maintenance cycle and enable your AIX and IBM i environments to be part of your cloud strategy.
With IBM no longer marketing Power8 upgrades for memory, internal storage etc organisations do not need to be trapped in the corridor of uncertainty, searching for budget for new Power9/10 servers with functionality not necessarily required by most companies or wondering to stay with Power8. Skytap on Azure, with L3C build and migration services frees you from on premise constraints and brings your AIX and IBM i LPARs into the world of agility, scalability and controllability.
