Why Skytap has become the de facto could for AIX and IBM i
As CEO of a cloud migration services company, I guide enterprises each week on their digital transformation and the best path to the cloud. And over the past decade, the challenge that frequently surfaces is how to include legacy applications in the broader cloud transformation initiative. We’ve all seen how modern applications have migrated to or been built on mature cloud infrastructures such as Azure, AWS and GCP, and yet until recently, companies with critical legacy AIX and IBM i workloads have been limited in their choices, often being forced to exclude these workloads from their cloud strategies. However, with the expansion of Skytap on Azure over the past few years, local and global organizations can now bring their IBM Power workloads into a modern cloud environment making overall IT operations easier with a single pane of glass interface, as well as facilitating the improved performance, security, compliance, backup and DR utilities that come along with cloud-native technologies.
