Operate IBM System I – AS/400 applications in the Cloud — Astadia offers all options for clients moving IBM midrange applications to the Cloud
BOSTON, MA, UNITED STATES, February 23, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Astadia and Connectria announce a partnership to assist clients currently operating large Enterprise Applications and Databases on IBM System I (NYSE:IBM) midrange computers to migrate to the Cloud Platform of their choice. This includes the original AS/400 family of midrange systems. In today’s environment, many organizations have a “Cloud First” strategy for deploying business applications. Since most of the important business applications reside on midrange and mainframe systems, moving these applications and databases to the Cloud requires expert skills and technology. Astadia’s partnership with Connectria offers midrange clients a managed hosting and managed services platform.
“Astadia and Connectria offer clients using IBM System I a complete managed hosting and managed services solution. This enables organizations to get to an operational Cloud platform like Azure or AWS, while reducing IT operational staffing levels.” said Scott G. Silk, Chairman and CEO of Astadia.
“Astadia clients may choose to deploy on the Azure or AWS Cloud, with an option to move to a private IBM i Cloud. Mission-critical application workloads have the right profile for a migration and transformation to a Cloud platform” said Mr.Silk.
“With Astadia we saw an opportunity to work together on new customer joint pursuits, as well as existing customer referrals, with the leading mainframe modernization company. Connectria and Astadia have outstanding track records when it comes to delivering customer-oriented results utilizing IBM platforms, which makes this partnership a natural fit. This partnership allows us to offer management, modernization and migrations services to customers no matter what IBM infrastructure they utilize,” said Amar Patel, Connectria’s Chief Executive Officer.
