Things Power Systems can do on IBM Cloud

Data copy to cloud

Secure a Disaster-Recovery-as-a-Service site in the cloud. Help ensure your mission-critical applications, systems of records, DB2 transactions or ERP/CRM plans remain resilient with off-site, high-availability resources.

Development and testing

Help reduce costs with pay-as-you-use billing to accommodate the transient nature of development and testing environments. Begin projects without large, capital budget approvals, run multiple tests simultaneously, and spin up or down as needed.

Resource scaling

Bring more capacity to on-premises infrastructure when required. Take advantage of public cloud resources and pay-as-you-use to help deliver peak operational performance plus Opex savings.

Customer support

Work through non-production tasks in parallel to production environments. Troubleshoot, replicate and help resolve issues faster by using a virtually constant supply of LPARs for staging.


Leverage cloud native services and architectural patterns to help transform business models, including web applications, DevOps and DB2 workloads. Help drive mobility through modernization.

Access to AI

Connect your IBM Power Systems workloads to IBM Watson®. Help improve decisions based on real-time trends. Build truly cognitive applications quickly and more securely.

  1. Almost all of what you mention is supprisingly legitimate and it makes me ponder why I hadn’t looked at this in this light previously. Your piece really did turn the light on for me as far as this specific subject goes. Nonetheless at this time there is one point I am not really too comfortable with so whilst I attempt to reconcile that with the central idea of the point, let me observe exactly what all the rest of your visitors have to point out.Nicely done.
