Taking traditional apps to the cloud

Many organizations are challenged by how to migrate and run their traditional, business-critical applications in a cloud-centric world. Skytap removes this uncertainty, providing a quicker path to the cloud.

At Skytap our mission is simple: make it easy, fast, and safe for our customers to move and natively run their traditional systems in the public cloud with minimal change. Founded in 2006, we’ve spent over fifteen years working closely with enterprises globally to accelerate their journey to the cloud. During this time, we pioneered the path for IBM Power Systems to the cloud and partnered globally with Microsoft Azure and IBM Cloud.

Today, our customers use Skytap for running production, disaster recovery, virtual training labs, and development workloads. We are the best cloud service to support AIX, IBM i, and Linux on IBM Power together with x86 workloads. Learn more about our offerings here.
