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.

Fast and Flexible

Move at your own pace. Start with small workloads and migrate at the best pace for your business. With Skytap you are able to move your traditional IBM Power workloads without rewriting or refactoring helping you to eliminate capital intensive investments keeping your workloads on-premises, and maximizing your Azure investments.

Azure Native

Begin to transform your traditional workloads by moving them to Azure and integrating them with others already running natively in Azure. Once your data is in Skytap, begin to enhance it and extract more value using Azure advanced analytics, AI/ML, Azure SQL, and more. And, be able to close the latency gap between your data center and Azure native solutions.
