Find the IBM i Cloud Hosting Provider that’s Right for Your Company

With an IBM i cloud hosting provider, you can maximize the capabilities of your computing environment in terms of scalability and reliability. A purely local infrastructure for your IT environment can become a nuisance to manage, particularly if you use a legacy system for production, since acquiring new parts for scaling up your resources and maintaining old hardware can be costly and time consuming. When you have your environment hosted remotely through cloud computing, your IT department can flourish in terms of application development and other mission-critical tasks, since it won’t be burdened with the responsibilities of datacenter maintenance.

When choosing the company that will host your cloud-based datacenter, whether you’re combining cloud resources with your existing infrastructure for increased scalability or making a full transition to the cloud to shift to an operating expense, there are two main types of hosting services to consider. For instance, if you’re only interested in having your system hosted remotely, but you’d like to keep the management of your operating system handled in-house, you might choose infrastructure as a service (IaaS). Or, if you’d prefer to have your platform managed by a third party to free up your IT department even further for production, you might prefer platform as a service (PaaS).
