Northdoor and Skytap make Power in the cloud a reality

As a platform for mission-critical workloads, IBM Power has an exceptional reputation for reliability, security and performance. But when it comes to flexible options for running in the cloud, Power has historically lagged a long way behind x86. Happily, that’s all changed: the Skytap service from Northdoor lets you migrate existing AIX, IBM i and Linux workloads of practically any size and complexity and run them natively in the cloud.

If you’ve gone down the cloud migration route for x86 but hit a roadblock for Power, Northdoor has the answer with Skytap. Northdoor makes it easy and risk-free to plan and execute the migration of your Power applications to the cloud, alongside our expert support, maintenance and optimisation services. So you can focus on your mission-critical applications, while our IBM-certified technicians keep the platform in perfect order. What’s more, Skytap enables you to manage your entire cloud landscape – both Power and x86 – from a single point of control.

Skytap- reducing migration risk to the cloud

Smooth migration to the cloud

The Skytap cloud service natively runs AIX, IBM i, and Linux on Power workloads on your choice of Microsoft Azure or IBM Cloud. As you’d expect, you benefit from capacity-based pricing, flexible monthly fees, instant scalability and integrated backup/DR options. And by working with Northdoor, you get access to all the experience and expertise of an IBM Platinum Partner, for a no-risk, no-hassle migration of even the most sensitive workloads.

Once your workloads are migrated, Northdoor can provide tailored maintenance and support services, from basic monitoring through to full outsourcing of your IBM Power environment in the cloud. If you’ve already moved your x86 landscape to the cloud, isn’t it time to get the same flexibility, cost-efficiency and ease of management for your Power landscape?

To find out how Northdoor can migrate your IBM Power workloads to the cloud—rapidly and at low risk— contact us today for a free demonstration of the Skytap service.
