Businesses that use IBM i can benefit from moving to the IBM i cloud. First of all, cloud infrastructure is greatly flexible and much more efficient to scale than rigid, non-virtualized infrastructure. Scalability is a must for any business because as data grows, infrastructure has to keep up to reduce the chance that critical errors may occur. Cloud-based infrastructure is also completely host managed, which eliminates the tasks of hardware acquisition, installation, and maintenance from a company’s workflow.
These infrastructure-related benefits are only a small portion of what an IBM i cloud provider can offer. Platform management is another great feature of the cloud – by delegating the tedious OS management tasks that can often bog down developers, a business can streamline its workflow and focus more on business critical tasks. There are also services such as cloud backup and business continuity that can help you keep your data protected.
