Now Available on AWS Marketplace, Connectria’s IBM with AWS Hybrid Architecture

Our IBM Power Systems (i/AIX) and AWS Hybrid Architecture are now available in an AWS Marketplace listing. This listing will help enterprises seeking to securely run IBM Power Systems (IBM i and AIX) workloads in a high-performance hybrid architecture with ultra-low latency (<2ms) connectivity to AWS.
