Give your traditional systems new life on Azure

Migrate entire IBM Power data center environments, including applications, data, and networking configurations, in as little as a few hours without rewriting or refactoring.

With Skytap, your traditional workloads — AIX, IBM i, Linux on IBM Power, and x86  — can run natively in the cloud on Microsoft Azure. This means your organization can take advantage of core cloud infrastructure capabilities, including capacity on demand, self-service provisioning, high availability, and disaster recovery (HA/DR). With Skytap on Azure, your business-critical applications are on the latest IBM Power hardware, procured and maintained by Microsoft.

With Skytap on Azure, you can minimize the latency between traditional workloads and those running natively on Azure. You also can enhance traditional applications to extract more value from your data with Azure services—including advanced analytics, AI/ML and Azure SQL—and more easily integrate traditional and Azure native applications.
