Cloud-based business continuity from Northdoor

As a platform that typically runs the most important enterprise applications and databases, IBM Power is a target for significant investments in disaster recovery (DR) and business continuity. Organisations often have one or more duplicate environments in different sites so that critical functions can be restored rapidly in the event of a failure. But given the high availability, reliability and resilience of IBM Power hardware, it can be frustrating to divert capital expenditure to backup servers that may only ever run non-production workloads.

Even if the cloud is not an option right now for your production workloads on Power, how would it be if you could set up a flexible, low-cost DR/business continuity landscape in the cloud?

Northdoor’s Skytap disaster recovery platform

The Skytap cloud service from Northdoor runs AIX, IBM i and Linux workloads natively, backed by ongoing support, maintenance and optimisation services. Northdoor can help you create a virtual recovery environment for your existing Power workloads, significantly reducing your capital expenditure on hardware, and giving you the option of added resilience through multi-centre backup.

Get in touch today to arrange a demonstration or full proof-of-concept for Skytap as a DR platform.

More efficient protection for critical systems

Skytap natively runs IBM Power workloads on your choice of Microsoft Azure or IBM Cloud. As a full cloud platform, it enables you to deploy precisely the capacity you require, and quickly expand it if you need to fail over a production system. Instead of maintaining costly spare capacity on-premises, you can simply fire up the dormant cloud resources in the event of a disaster.

With thirty years of expertise in IBM Power, and holding IBM Platinum Partner status from IBM, Northdoor is ideally positioned to help you design and implement an optimised, cloud-based DR environment for your Power workloads.

To find out how Northdoor can help you reduce costs and increase resilience with a business continuity solution on Skytap for your existing IBM Power workloads—contact us today for a free demonstration of the Skytap service.
