Businesses make the decision to migrate their systems to the cloud for numerous reasons. Housing data and apps on the cloud allows them to streamline their operations, it enhances efficiencies, and it takes the burden off of IT teams who monitor systems on-site. Transitioning to the cloud also keeps business costs down.
We can all agree that critical business data needs to be protected against disasters and that unplanned downtimes can be extremely costly. Yet many IT managers are not in agreement about the best backup approach for their IBM Power Systems that are running IBM i. Some believe that traditional methods (such as tape) are still
More companies than ever are moving their IBM i systems to the cloud, and for good reason. There’s mounting proof that cloud-based IBM i systems can run as securely or even more securely than when hosted on-premises in a corporate data center.

As more and more enterprises migrate their data and apps to the cloud, they do so to reap the benefits inherent in assigning the task of managing the infrastructure that is required to support critical application and data to Cloud Service Providers, from cost savings and reduced management to 24/7 around-the-clock support. Yet security is
Since the late 1970s, Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and financial software have comprised the bulk of software applications run on IBM POWER systems — specifically the IBM i (AS/400, i Series, System i) operating system. This should come as no surprise, as IBM was founded on the premise of producing computers and hardware specifically earmarked
Would you pile your family into a 20-year-old jalopy with half a million miles on it and head across country, knowing there’s a very strong possibility the vehicle will break down irreparably at some point along the journey? Likewise, would you run your critical applications on an end-of-life system that was long past its prime
