Enjoy flexible, as-a-service pricing for your IBM Power platforms

IBM Power servers are designed to run mission-critical workloads, and that level of engineering excellence naturally comes at a premium price. Particularly if your Power workloads are relatively small, refreshing your hardware on the normal three-to-five-year cycle can be a major drain on IT budgets.

How would it be if you could exchange high capital costs and limited flexibility for low monthly fees and precisely the right-sized platform for your workloads? How would it be if you could pay only for what you really need?

Northdoor can help by migrating your AIX, IBM i and Linux workloads to run natively on IBM Power hardware in the Skytap cloud. While you focus on serving end users, we provide expert ongoing support, maintenance and optimisation. As an IBM Platinum Business Partner with three decades of IBM Power experience, Northdoor can help you get off the technology treadmill and break out of the regular cycle of investment in Power hardware.

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