Hybrid Cloud Architect’s Guide

Get the IT performance your need in a highly flexible and scalable model.

Even with the rising use of cloud resources, organizations still choose to keep many of their applications and workloads on-premises - one of the main reasons that many organizations are shifting toward hybrid cloud as an approach to IT.

Infrastructure as-a-Service for IBM i

Currently, there is a somewhat painful yet obvious point that there is not a lot of new talent running the IBM i operating system. So while there is a lot of business reliance on i, there are very few young people that are working on the operating system, hardware and pieces that support it.

Generally speaking, applications running IBM i are extremely large and have been pretty substantial to core business processes for the past 10-20-30 years. Because these systems have been so reliable, a replacement is most likely, not been cost-justified or there has been no need to replace them.
