Cloud Hosting for IBM i Datacenters Helps to Maximize Flexibility and Scalability

Switching to cloud hosting for your IBM i computing environment is an excellent way to improve the scalability of your datacenter and shift from a capital expense to an operating expense. Cloud hosting is becoming more and more popular, especially as computing hardware continues to see rapid advancements. When your entire datacenter is hosted onsite with an infrastructure that your own staff has to manage, you have to endure all of the common headaches of maintaining aging hardware and procuring new equipment when you want to scale up your resources. With a complete shift to cloud computing, or with a hybrid cloud supplementing your existing infrastructure, you can minimize or even avoid these struggles, saving valuable time and capital.

Benefits of IBM i Cloud Hosting

With a cloud-hosted environment for your IBM system, you can rest easy with the assurance that your IT infrastructure is managed offsite by experts who specialize in keeping every part of the host datacenter perfectly maintained. This has the added benefit of allowing your entire system to be stored remotely for recovery so that nothing is lost in the event of a local disaster situation. Plus, unlike when managing your own infrastructure, if you need to add computing or storage resources for your cloud environment, all you need to do is contact your hosting provider to have them allocate extra resources to your portion of the cloud for instant results.
