How iSeries Cloud Services Can Benefit Your Company

Incorporating iSeries cloud hosting services into your IT environment can provide significant advantages for your company. If you have an existing iSeries-based infrastructure onsite and need to add resources to it, you can do so easily with the high scalability of cloud resources. As opposed to procuring and installing hardware that might never be used to full capacity, cloud hosting allows you to only purchase the additional capabilities you need, which can be scaled back down when you no longer require them. Or, if you want to shift from your existing infrastructure or start from the ground up with cloud hosting, you will only need to budget for an operating expense rather than the acquisition and maintenance costs of onsite hardware.

When looking into iSeries cloud services for your datacenter, there are many factors to consider on top of simply how much hosting capacity your IT environment requires. Having your environment hosted in a large-capacity datacenter offsite is important, but it’s equally important to make sure that the hosting site is constructed with top-of-the-line hardware and set up with thorough firewall protection for reliability and secure storage. Also, you’ll want to make a distinction as to whether you require infrastructure as a service (IaaS) hosting, where your staff will manage your operating system, or platform as a service (PaaS) hosting, where your cloud provider handles critical updates so your staff can focus on development.
