IBM i Services

A full range of services for your mission-critical systems

ibm i series

 

For years, IBM i (iSeries – AS/400) has been one of the most trusted platforms for mission-critical workloads in the world. But, as more companies are taking a ‘cloud first’ approach to their IT strategy, what does that mean for IBM i shops?

 

You Don’t Have to Give Up Your IBM i Environment

IBM iSeries is a tremendously robust on-premises platform. Connectria offers multiple solutions to help companies take advantage of streamlined IT operations and cloud computing, while keeping their mission-critical workloads in an IBM i environment.

Remote Administration

Realize higher uptime and reliability of your on-premises IBM systems while using your IT budget more efficiently. With remote administration, our staff takes on the responsibility for full administration of your environment, including OS management as well as backup and restore processes.

Remote Monitoring

Keep your IBM systems on-premises without compromising security, compliance, or performance. With our remote monitoring services, we’ll keep an eye on your infrastructure and alert your staff to any potential problems using your escalation policies and procedures.

Hosted, Private Cloud

Looking to offload even more overhead costs? Our dedicated hosting solutions allow you to deploy your workloads on IBM systems in one of our highly secure SSAE 18 SOC I and SOC II certified data centers. You get the benefits of cloud computing for your most mission-critical workloads.

Managed IBM Cloud with AWS and Azure

Many of the organizations we work with also house applications and data in AWS or Azure. We can help you determine the right environment for each of your workloads and even orchestrate workloads across environments with our Managed IBM Cloud with AWS and Azure.

“We were very impressed with Connectria’s IBM i pedigree and inclusion of the U.S. government among its customers. Given Connectria’s ability to satisfy this type of customer, we felt confident that they would meet our requirements as well.”

Paul Sarrapy, President and CEO, Grupo Porteo

“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.”

IBM i Disaster Recovery

For mission-critical applications with very short RTO & RPO objectives that also require ease of doing “role-swaps” from the primary environment to the DR environment (and back), we have utilized MIMIX® replication software from Syncsort for more than fifteen years. Connectria offers a range of IBM i Disaster Recovery options, with multiple price points, to address various Recovery Time Objective (RTO) and Recovery Point Objective (RPO) requirements.

Using Connectria’s industry-leading IBM i Cloud – the largest in North America – you can rent the capacity you’ll need in the event of a disaster, without having to pay the full cost – at significant savings.

Best of all, your DR capacity is guaranteed to be there when you need it, and is fully reserved just for you.  Unlike most other providers, DR capacity cannot be used by another customer that declares a disaster before you.
