Abacus will own your relocation and migration to our cloud, and provide you the needed runway for an aging platform. Drawing from our years of experience, we will plan your relocation with you for the lowest possible business impact. Abacus will take your hardware as is and/or reconfigure where needed, while keeping serial numbers the same for third party application and business depreciation requirements. After the hardware has been relocated, we will provide power, ping, pipe, hardware maintenance, operations management, redundant network and management, and daily offsite backup management as contracted.
Abacus can shift you from production to various levels of archive state until the day you no longer have use for the data. Abacus provides the life support to keep your iSeries environments alive and well for as long as needed.
Storing data requires space, time, and money; and while we cannot eliminate all backup storage obstacles, we can drastically reduce them with a storage solution that scales to your budget and IT needs. As an IBM i focused cloud provider, Abacus is well versed in the importance of best practices backup policies, procedures, and infrastructure. Abacus parlays off this cloud experience and provides a one-too-many solution to the customer.
Abacus will provide a customer premise backup appliance, then work, with and for, the customer to setup disk to disk backups to the local appliance. Then, we'll establish a connection to the Abacus Backup Cloud for replication. Finally, we'll monitor and manage daily deduplication to the Abacus Backup Cloud. This data is available locally and offsite, and because of deduplication and compression technology, the storage and bandwidth requirements are typically low. The customer is responsible for the data being backed up, while Abacus is responsible for the backup to the local appliance and daily offsite replication.
