IBM Power on Azure: 1-Day Workshop

Northdoor plc

IBM Power typically runs mission-critical applications, even in organisations that have largely moved to x86 servers. This means that the platform must be maintained in optimal condition at all times.

Northdoor can help by migrating your existing AIX (formerly pSeries), IBM i (formerly AS400, iSeries) and Linux workloads to run natively in the cloud, and providing ongoing support, maintenance and optimisation services tailored to your precise needs.

You focus on running your mission-critical applications, and we handle all the underlying technology. As an IBM Platinum Business Partner and Microsoft Gold Cloud Platform Partner with three decades of experience, we have all the skills you need.

Skytap on Azure provides secure shared IBM Power resources backed by expert migration, management and optimisation services from Northdoor. With Skytap, you can flexibly configure the resources you need and swap high capital expenditure for low monthly fees. As your needs change over time, you can simply flex the service up or down. And as one of the only cloud services that supports virtual machines running AIX, IBM i and Linux on IBM Power as well as x86 workloads, Skytap on Azure could be all the cloud you ever need.

When you migrate Power workloads to Skytap with Northdoor, you can tailor-make a support service that fits your precise requirements – all the way up to fully outsourced 24/7 monitoring and support delivered by Northdoor experts. In addition to helping you plan and execute your migration, Northdoor can advise you on further optimisation of your Power landscape and on the best options for the future.
