A System i LPAR can give developers the freedom to run multiple operating systems, test software on different platforms, back up an entire environment via snapshot for quick redeployment, and archive legacy systems, among other things. With the right cloud hosting provider, you can gain access to an unlimited amount of LPARs for your IBM system without having to worry about infrastructure requirements. For many businesses, that cloud provider is Abacus Solutions.
As a certified IBM i Managed Services Provider, Abacus Solutions has extensive knowledge about and experience with IBM hardware and software systems. Not only can our team help you set up a System i LPAR in the Abacus i Cloud, but we offer a wide range of cloud services and can help you pick the right solution to meet the unique needs of your company. Our cloud services include:
- Infrastructure as a service (IaaS) – Abacus Solutions offers three IaaS options: Hosting, the Entry i Cloud, and the Enterprise i Cloud. IaaS allows businesses to put infrastructure development in the hands of experts and focus more on business-critical tasks.
- Platform as a service (PaaS) – PaaS has all the benefits of IaaS with the addition of operating system management. PaaS allows businesses to delegate tedious OS management tasks and focus on the tasks that matter most.
- Backup as a service (BaaS) – Backing up data is a tricky but essential part of any business. Instead of trying to tackle this in house, why not entrust it to a team of engineers who work with backups every day?
