The AS/400 Cloud Can Help Your Business Grow

The AS/400 cloud is made up of several different programs that can help any business using the IBM i platform grow. Infrastructure as a service (IaaS) is one such track. This service allows a business to acquire cloud-based hardware as it is needed, making scaling easier and more cost effective. Cloud-based hardware is also managed by the host, so enrolling in an IaaS program can reduce or eliminate the amount of time that your IT department spends infrastructure-related tasks. Platform as a Service (PaaS) is the convergence of IaaS and OS management, which can help to streamline the workflow of your IT department even more.

You would likely benefit from a switch to the AS/400 cloud if:

  • You have an aging workforce or have lost a critical resource
  • You need infrastructure that can scale quickly and easily
  • You want to shift to business-critical workloads
  • You have a pending application or hardware upgrade
  • You need to eliminate invasive backup windows
  • You need business continuity
  • You would like to delegate aspects of hardware operations and management
  • You need to move a legacy environment to archive
  • You have a short-term testing or development need
  • You would like to perform an OS upgrade test
