IBM i and Azure Hybrid Cloud

Fully managed hybrid cloud solutions to help you bridge the gap between legacy IT and the cloud

MANAGE

Centralized management

Bringing IBM i and Azure together helps you centralize and simplify the management of your infrastructure. You can streamline operations, reduce your data center footprint, and free up IT resources by leveraging our managed services for your IBM i workloads, your Azure workloads, or both.

Bring legacy IT and cloud workloads together in fully managed hybrid cloud environment

MODERNIZE

Enable new possibilities

Running your IBM i or AIX based workloads on-net with Azure opens up a variety of possibilities like improved reliability and HA configurations, improved disaster recovery, and 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

MIGRATE

Exit the data center

More than 80% of IBM Power Systems workloads are running on x86 infrastructure in the same date center. We’ll migrate both the IBM Power Systems and x86 infrastructure so you can reduce your data center footprint and lower your TCO by leveraging optimized cloud native services.

Accelerate cloud adoption with a comprehensive data center exit plan for your IBM i and x86 servers

How it Works

Connect your IBM i workloads directly to Azure

Our IBM Cloud is hosted on-net with Azure cloud regions in US-East and US-West, allowing for <2ms latency direct connections between your IBM i/AIX workloads and Azure VMs.

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 Azure cloud services. It also creates the perfect foundation for longer term modernization and cloud adoption goals.
