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 Azure Synapse, AI/ML and Azure SQL—and more easily integrate traditional and Azure native applications.
Skytap on Azure is also certified by SAP® for its cloud and infrastructure operations. With Skytap, you can migrate SAP® NetWeaver® workloads, regardless of operating system and without rewriting or refactoring, for production, disaster recovery, backup and archival, and application development and testing.
