Finding the Right iSeries Cloud Hosting Provider for Your Company’s IT Environment

iSeries cloud hosting is a helpful service for any company looking to improve scalability and flexibility in its computing environment. Hosting and maintaining your own datacenter entirely in-house can become unwieldy in terms of time, money, and labor, and you can quickly find that your company’s capital is tied up in rapidly depreciating hardware from trying to scale up your infrastructure. Plus, with all of the maintenance and procurement work that your IT staff has to perform for your infrastructure, they could end up with considerably less time for production and application development. With a cloud-hosted environment, all of your hardware and maintenance costs can simply be shifted to operating costs, and scalability can be as easy as contacting your provider to ask for the allocation of additional resources.

Of course, it’s important to make sure that you find an iSeries cloud hosting provider that can keep your company’s computing environment secure and up to date, but proper hosting services should extend above and beyond that. For instance, make sure the company you choose for cloud services can help you with your transition to the cloud, rather than leaving it up to your staff to connect to their infrastructure and transfer the necessary data. Also, not all hosting companies offer the same level of customer service and support, so it’s helpful to see how much technical support they offer for their clients.
