Connectria's New Hybrid Cloud Solution Puts IBM Power Systems in AWS Regions

Connectria has announced the launch of a new hybrid architecture solution that brings IBM Power Systems to Amazon Web Services (AWS) colocation.

Connectria’s hybrid architecture, with IBM Power Systems communicating with AWS, is designed to enable businesses to migrate their traditional IT infrastructure into a fully managed hybrid architecture with low latency connection between IBM Power Systems environments and AWS. In doing so, companies can continue to maintain business-critical IBM i & AIX workloads, replace dependent x86 infrastructure with optimized AWS services, and reduce their data center footprint.

According to Connectria, low-latency direct connections between IBM i/AIX systems and AWS open up new possibilities for IBM workloads to leverage advanced data analytics, multi-region high-availability (HA) deployments, and other forms of augmentation with AWS cloud services.

"We've partnered with AWS to bring our industry-leading IBM i and AIX hosting expertise to AWS US-East-1 and US-West-1," said Rich Waidmann, Connectria president and CEO. "By combining our IBM and AWS capabilities, we're able to deliver the first end-to-end solution of this kind, starting with the migration of your existing IBM i/AIX environment, as-is, to our modern POWER environment (with full 24/7 managed services) and backed by our next generation multi-cloud management platform, TRiA. You can then build advanced capabilities in AWS utilizing your existing IBM assets as the base."
