Why Choose AS/400 Cloud Hosting for Your IT Environment?

If your datacenter uses AS/400 hardware or software, cloud hosting is an important service that you may wish to consider to improve your company’s IT capabilities, especially since they are highly flexible in terms of how you want your environment to be hosted. You can choose to transfer your entire computing environment to a cloud-hosted infrastructure, thus removing the need for an onsite datacenter, or you could decide to keep your existing infrastructure and supplement it with cloud-hosted resources integrated through a hybrid cloud. There are many benefits that cloud computing has to offer for your IT environment, regardless of whether you prefer to have a hybrid cloud or a completely cloud-hosted system.

Particularly for legacy systems like AS/400, cloud hosting through infrastructure as a service (IaaS) eliminates the hassle of trying to find and maintain legacy hardware for your datacenter. That’s because the infrastructure is maintained for you, and scaling up resources is as easy as contacting your cloud provider, so there’s no excess time and capital tied up in procuring hardware that will likely not be used to its full capacity for years. Also, with a platform as a service (PaaS) solution, your IT department can focus on application development and production while your cloud provider manages your operating system and any critical updates.
