IBM Power Systems and AWS

Our award-winning IBM Power Systems cloud.
Now available on-net with AWS.

Exit the data center

More than 80% of IBM Power Systems workloads rely on Windows, Linux, or other infrastructure in the same data center. With an IBM hybrid cloud on-net with AWS, you can significantly reduce your data center footprint and lower your TCO by migrating those dependent workloads to cloud native services that improve the scalability, cost, and performance of your infrastructure.

Enable new possibilities

Running your IBM Power Systems workloads on-net with AWS opens up a variety of new possibilities ranging from more reliable high availability (HA) configurations to improved disaster recovery, and enables access to modern data analytics, IoT, AI/ML, and other cloud services that can significantly increase the capabilities of your applications.

Leverage multi-region HA configurations and add IoT, AI/ML and other capabilities to your IBM workloads

Unify infrastructure management

Centralize and simplify IT management by bringing your traditional infrastructure and cloud resources together into a single vendor hybrid-cloud environment. By deploying your IBM workloads in a hybrid cloud architecture you can drastically streamline your operations and management.

How it Works

Achieve ultra-low latency between IBM Power Systems and AWS

Our IBM Cloud is hosted on-net with AWS cloud regions in US-East-1 and US-West-1, allowing for <2ms latency direct connections between your IBM i/AIX workloads and AWS instances.This low latency connection opens up new possibilities for your Power Systems investments with high availability deployments, advanced user experiences, and sophisticated data analytics with AWS cloud services. It also creates the perfect foundation for longer term cloud migration goals, without refactoring your IBM workloads.

“There aren’t very many options that still have a native IBM i platform support and a more modern dedicated cloud. What initially jumped off the page in terms of Connectria was just that. There are a lot of folks that can do one or the other, and others partnering to deliver a hybrid IT solution, but not very many that can do what Connectria can natively with their full-time staff onsite.”

Trey Willis CTO,
CTSI Global

“Our total experience in moving from an on-premise V5R4 system to the IBM i 7.2 Cloud was spectacular. Honestly it could not have gone any better. And the response from our end users was an immediate, noticeable improvement.”
