Migrate your Dev and Test to the cloud

By migrating your development and test LPARs to the Skytap service from Northdoor, you can keep your on-premises Power services dedicated to running your production landscape. With Skytap – available on Microsoft Azure or IBM Cloud – you get exactly the resources you need on a securely shared IBM Power environment. Instead of borrowing scarce resources from your on-premises production systems, you can rapidly fire up dev and test environments as and when they are required:  it’s easy, fast, secure, and cost-effective.

Running native cloud environments

Northdoor can help you migrate your dev and test for AIX, IBM i and Linux on Power to run natively in the cloud. We can then provide tailored support, keeping your developers and testers free to focus on their code.

Get in touch today to find out how Skytap from Northdoor could cut your costs and boost your flexibility for dev and test on IBM Power.

Fast, flexible & cost-effective

Applications and databases running on IBM Power are often among the most important workloads you have. Naturally, you want to reserve server resources for production workloads. At the same time, you need spare capacity for development and testing.

Rather than spending time and effort juggling limited on-premises resources, why not move your dev and test for Power Systems to the cloud? Skytap offers greater speed, flexibility, and convenience. Click To Tweet

Rather than spending time and effort juggling limited on-premises resources, why not move your dev and test for Power Systems to the cloud?

Skytap offers greater speed, flexibility, and convenience, enabling you to assign the required resources to developers and testers without worrying about the potential impact on production systems. And instead of needing to add headroom for dev and test to each new Power server you buy, you can swap that ongoing capital expenditure for flexible, pay-as-you-use cloud resources – and preserve any spare on-premises capacity for workload peaks.
