It is possible to run your IBM Power on Microsoft Azure.
By using Skytap to move traditional workloads to Azure, you can extend the capabilities of applications that are crucial to the business, ensure business continuity, and spur innovation. Migrate entire IBM Power data center environments, including applications, data, and networking configurations, in as little as a few hours without rewriting or refactoring.
Your traditional applications running on IBM Power Systems are likely still stuck in the data center, making it difficult for you to take full advantage of the flexibility and powerful capabilities available in the cloud. With Skytap, your traditional workloads—AIX, IBM i, Linux on IBM Power, and x86—can run natively in the cloud on Microsoft Azure.
Once workloads are running in Skytap, core cloud infrastructure capabilities including capacity on-demand, self-service provisioning, and high availability make applications more broadly available, scalable, and resilient to unplanned downtime. And with Azure, developers can leverage the benefits of the cloud faster and innovate across traditional applications sooner through integration with Azure’s industry-leading services. With Skytap on Azure, your business-critical applications are on the latest IBM Power hardware, procured and maintained by Microsoft.
