Key Use Cases for IBM Power Systems in the IBM Cloud
CIOs and IT managers that use AIX and IBM i environments love the performance and reliability of their Power Systems infrastructure.
But that infrastructure requires a large capital commitment on-prem which makes their business less flexible than they’d like it to be.
What that means to you:
IBM Cloud gives clients the ability to quickly and easily spin up Power Systems resources in the IBM Cloud.
Clients that are looking for more flexible operating models (e.g., OPEX vs. CAPEX) and technical options can use this option to leverage IBM Cloud for POWER.
Test AIX and IBM i in the Cloud
A separate and secure sandbox environment for Power Systems users to test their own AIX and IBM i workloads, try out new operating system versions or the latest and greatest hardware generation.
Run enterprise POWER workloads in the Cloud
AIX and IBM i applications are no longer restricted to reside on-premise. Help clients build a hybrid cloud environment with the ability to host their AIX and IBM i apps in the IBM Cloud.
IBM Disaster Recovery without double commitment
Currently, AIX and IBM i clients need to build their own data center for DR. Now, with IBM Cloud, they get those options at a more affordable cost. IBM Disaster Recovery is critical for easy data recovery.
GPU-accelerated Linux for AI, Machine Learning and Deep Learning
Easily harness the power of Linux on POWER with the same user experience, services and operational support as x86-based Virtual Server Instances (VSIs) in VPC.
