New Year New Unix Maintenance Bill?
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 support still key applications and maybe a shortage of Sysadmin or DBA skills. Happy New Year!
L3C can help you escape this trap. If you are running your AIX applications on out of support infrastructure we can migrate you to a modern, supported IBM Power platform, provide fit for purpose DR (rather than maybe something designed a few years back when requirements were different), review your service levels and enhance them where necessary.
This saves you those large maintenance bills, data centre space and power costs, the back of your mind thoughts about how to recover if one of those P5 or P6 servers fails and provides the business with a DR recovery time and point that meets current needs.
We recently migrated a Power5 and Power6 client with business critical applications that linked into multiple AWS based apps onto a modern Power8 platform and provided Sysadmin and DBAdmin for Oracle and Progress DBs yet reduced their previous costs and enhanced their service levels: https://l3ccloud.com/project-details/aix-legacy/
Moving to a modern Power8 (or 9) platform also allows scope for future growth and we offer environments to test and deploy cognitive/AI analytic apps or test and deploy open source technologies such as MariaDB and MongoDB. By providing a safe and low cost environment you can experiment with new approaches to break free from some of the legacy world that can constrain innovation, drain cost and cause endless frustration.
Don’t let an ageing AIX, Solaris, or HPUX Unix platform hold you back from deploying new projects and providing a more robust and scalable base for future growth. Contact us firstname.lastname@example.org and we will happily explore by phone or in person a suitable technical and commercial approach.
