Why IBM Power Systems on cloud?

IBM Power Systems have a strong reputation for reliability, security and longevity. There’s a very good chance that yours is still going strong after many years of faithful service. When choices have to be made about the renewal of this system, know that the cloud is an option! 

The IBM Power Systems platform is now available virtually, as a service, in Cloud2be. That means in a private, managed cloud offering, managed by EASI's specialists. 

It’s perfect for when your current infrastructure needs to be renewed, can’t keep pace with competitor and market demands, or if you want to offer products, services and solutions that require high computing power in a scalable model.

“Managing servers is not one of our core competences. Therefore, we like to call upon the service and support of EASI to manage our IBM Power Systems infrastructure in the cloud. This also allows us to master the sharp increase in the number of users of our applications.”
