There are many reasons to consider moving your backup data to IBM i storage in the cloud. One is that cloud providers offering data backup options employ engineers to develop, refine, and maintain the infrastructure and software that’s required to meet reliable backup standards. Given its vital importance, wouldn’t you rather put your data in the hands of full-time backup specialists than in the already-full hands of the members of your development team?
In addition to being managed by specialists, the cloud is easily scalable. Acquiring more infrastructure is as simple as speaking to your host, which is a much more convenient process than ordering hardware and integrating it into your premise-based infrastructure.
Among businesses that use IBM i, the cloud storage provider of choice is Abacus Solutions. As an IBM i Managed Services Provider, our company has a familiarity with IBM hardware and software that is available nowhere else in the industry.
