IBM i Public Cloud Dreaming

St. Louis, MO – January 24, 2019

Public Cloud Dreaming For IBM i – IT Jungle, January 23, 2019, Alex Woodie

Connectria’s President & CEO, Rich Waidmann, was interviewed by IT Jungle and spoke to the IBM i community and their quest to join the likes of the public cloud vendors.

“What makes [IBM i] unique compared to a typical Amazon or Azure environment is when you get into different classes of the systems, P10 and P20 scenarios,” Waidmann tells IT Jungle. “There are multiple models and flavors of IBM i and it’s impractical to think that any of those providers are going to have all of those different systems out there.”

Connectria has been in the IBM i hosting business since the platform was called the AS/400, and it has a large collection of “vintage” IBM hardware. The St. Louis, Missouri, company keeps the old stuff around because one can’t run old operating systems on new hardware.
