Let Our IBM Power Systems, System i, iSeries and AS/400 Experts Take Your Infrastructure To the Cloud

Business Need

Our goal is to house and host the last 10,000 IBM Power Systems, System i, iSeries and IBM AS/400. Abacus Solutions has a long-standing understanding of the IBM i environments. We understand that they run applications that many Windows servers can't. But we also know that IBM i expertise is hard to come by. That is why we offer the Abacus IBM i Cloud for customers with Power Systems, System i, iSeries and IBM AS/400 infrastructure. We free you up from having to worry about investing in new updates, hardware, and maintenance so your staff can concentrate at the application level. We can also update you to i6.1 or i7.1 and keep you current from now on.

We free you up from managing your Power Systems, System i, iSeries and IBM AS/400, so you can focus on more important business needs. Contact us to learn more today.

Abacus Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) Clouds

In the Abacus IaaS Clouds, Abacus offers computers - physical or virtual machines - raw (block) storage, firewalls, load balancers, and networks. The IaaS Clouds provide the environment for users to install operating systems images as well as application software(s). The cloud user is responsible for patching and maintaining the operating systems and application software. The IaaS Cloud services are sold on a utility computing basis, so cost will reflect the amount of resources allocated and consumed.
