Ensure ongoing access to scarce IBM Power skills
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. But with Power skills relatively rare in the marketplace—and becoming rarer as engineers retire—many organisations struggle to find and retain people with the right skills.
Northdoor can help by migrating your existing AIX, IBM i 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 with three decades of experience in Power, we have all the skills you need.
Keep your Power applications in perfect shape
Skytap is a cloud service that natively runs IBM Power workloads on your choice of Microsoft Azure or IBM Cloud. Wrapped up with expert migration and management services from Northdoor, Skytap releases you from dependence on in-house IBM Power skills, reducing your risks and costs. The service eliminates ongoing capital expenditure and enables you to specify the precise amount of Power resources you need, then easily scale up or down over time.Wrapped up with expert migration and management services from Northdoor, Skytap releases you from dependence on in-house IBM Power skills, reducing your risks and costs.

Particularly for smaller environments, where it can be hard to justify the cost of a full-time in-house Power specialist, the Skytap service from Northdoor provides permanent access to expert skills as and when you need them. Our economies of scale mean that we can offer you a far better level of service at significantly lower cost than employing in-house personnel. Northdoor can also help you further optimise your Power environment and advise you on the best future roadmap.
To find out how Northdoor can help you migrate your existing IBM Power workloads to a flexible, low-cost, fully supported cloud landscape—all at low risk—contact us today for a free demonstration of the Skytap service.
