Migrate traditional applications without rewriting

Migrate traditional applications without rewriting

Moving to the cloud doesn’t have to mean re-factoring or re-architecting. Skytap lets you move complete environments – including VMs/LPARs, applications, network configurations and more – to Microsoft Azure or IBM Cloud. Migration is fast and simple, taking as little as a few hours.

Add new life to existing applications

Skytap gives you the power to upgrade traditional applications with cloud service capabilities and benefits, including secure, low latency connectivity to native services on Microsoft Azure or IBM Cloud. Upgrade applications incrementally, at your pace, rather than rewriting them from the ground up.

Success StoryModernize and protect your business

Veritas, a global leader in data protection needed to move all its compute resources, engineering, product support, presales, and training from multiple co-located data centers to a new location in just two months.

The company turned to Skytap and IBM. Moving to Skytap involved migrating nearly 700TB of data spanning 10,000 VMs and 1500 templates to the cloud in under 50 days – with zero downtime and without reengineering. The result was a self-service cloud infrastructure that provides full visibility and control over IT systems. Skytap not only matched the storage capabilities of the previous data center, but also increased Veritas’ IT agility and scalability across multiple departments.

Success StoryModernize and protect your business

When civil unrest erupted in South Africa, global retailer SPAR found itself in a precarious situation. At risk and without an immediate response, SPAR was in danger of losing its data, connection to its stores, and its ability to supply products to its customers.

To protect operations, SPAR engaged with Meridian to immediately begin migrating its IBM Power Systems workloads from the on-prem data center to Skytap on Azure. Since it was not able to physically access its local data center, this migration had to be managed remotely. Meridian and Skytap quickly deployed their expert engineers to develop a unique solution to address SPAR’s challenges. Thanks to the immediate response, the team quickly and successfully migrated 10 LPARs from its IBM Power Systems to Skytap on Azure.

We would be unable to provide food to our community without access to our data centers, which were at risk of being destroyed. We had one meeting (with Meridian and Skytap) and the next day our systems were being migrated.
