Manage all cloud systems on the same platform
Microsoft’s openness in working with major Linux distributors gave businesses the ability to run all x86 workloads on Azure. By 2019, Linux was the most popular OS on Azure, and its share continues to grow. Today, Skytap makes it possible to run IBM Power workloads on the Azure cloud, too – enabling you to standardise on one cloud provider.
As an IBM Platinum Business Partner and Microsoft Gold Partner, Northdoor has the skills and accreditations to help you migrate both Power and x86 workloads to run on Skytap on the Azure cloud. We offer expert migration services and tailormade ongoing support, together with options for optimising and rationalising your application portfolio over time.
