Harness the power of agile, enterprise-class cloud infrastructure

Migrating to the cloud is never as simple as flipping a switch. You may face additional complications if you are running IBM Power Systems, Microsoft Windows, Linux or a legacy operating system.

Choose the next-generation managed service with the right combination of private and hybrid cloud options. Our flexible multiplatform cloud delivers IBM Power (IBM i & AIX), x86 (Windows/Linux) and IBM Z Systems from our PCI-compliant availability zones. Our secure hybrid cloud is hosted in our highly efficient data centres which are ranked among the most sustainable clouds in Europe.

IBM I

Optimise your IBM i operating system

Together, IBM Power Systems and the IBM i operating system result in a robust, reliable combination. You can build on that strength by scaling resources for peak consumption and/or adding high availability (HA) or disaster recovery (DR) targets. Within our highly secure, resilient environment, we help you to protect your production workloads, lower costs and reduce waste.

Advantages

  • Keep your hardware maintenance up to date and optimise its environment
  • Scope out test and development environments
  • Migrate a legacy system that is essential to the business

Features

  • Utilise storage or software replication between Availability Zones with no data egress charges
  • Spin up test and development environments on demand
  • Run legacy workloads

AIX

Be more efficient with your AIX resources

AIX offers a powerful UNIX platform for the most demanding applications, but purchasing IBM Power Systems for small environments is costly. The demand to maintain the environment, size the system for peak usage, meet VIOS configuration needs and use extensive monitoring tools can outpace staff capacity. We can provide the resources and technical skills to ensure that your AIX environment is optimised.

Advantages

  • Keep your hardware maintenance up to date and optimise its environment
  • Ensure high availability (HA) and disaster recovery (DR)
  • Scope out test and development environments
  • Provide the niche skill sets to run the IBM Power Systems efficiently, configure VIOS correctly and optimise monitoring tool usage

Features

  • Utilise storage or software replication between Availability Zones with no data egress charges
  • Spin up test and development environments on demand
  • Run legacy workloads

WINDOWS & LINUX

Simplify your cloud strategy

Significant planning, expertise and effort is required in mapping your Windows and Linux machine resources into the public cloud.

We can help you to use all the advantages of public cloud without the uncertainty of variable spend with our hybrid cloud solution.

Advantages

  • Reduce licensing costs
  • Size your systems correctly
  • Address legacy system challenges
  • Meet backups and resiliency demands

Features

  • Automatic configuration for failover
  • Network availability everywhere
  • Diversity in location of cluster nodes

Availability Zones with Cloud

Your environments are safe in our fully owned data centres and availability zones.

  • Interconnected high-bandwidth, low-latency networking for full redundancy
  • Independent cooling, power and physical security
  • Fault tolerant, scalable and highly available

We are happy to help you to evaluate the many factors that impact your cloud performance, such as data centre location, tier level and sustainability measures, and scheduling a tour of our data centres for a first-hand experience.
