ATS Expands Power Cloud
November 7, 2023

We are pleased to announce the expansion of ATS Power Cloud, a best-in-class cloud solution designed specifically for IBM® Power® Systems environments.

Following a successful service launch, this significant enhancement to the ATS Power Cloud offers many advanced functionalities that other vendors cannot provide and ultimately makes the cloud accessible for IBM Power environments of any size, whether small or large. With this new release, IT organizations can now take full advantage of the cloud for their critical AIX® & IBM i systems without paying exorbitant rates or risking performance or reliability.

IBM Power, running AIX, IBM i, and Linux®, is the engine that drives mission-critical workloads across the globe, yet their unique and critical nature has made them difficult to modernize. As a result, most organizations must choose between high costs, high risks, or both by outsourcing to people who don’t understand the platforms, overpaying for commoditized, ill-fitting cloud options from major cloud providers, or retiring the architecture altogether and executing a replatforming effort.

The expansion of ATS Power Cloud solves this challenge and provides enterprise infrastructure leaders with a new path to modernization. One that is rooted in technical proficiency, personalized, dedicated support, and data-driven optimization.

“The world’s top enterprises have trusted IBM Power Systems to run their mission-critical applications for decades,” says Tim Conley, Principal of The ATS Group & Galileo Suite. “But, finding qualified people to manage those environments is harder than ever.

“Take one look at the existing cloud providers claiming to understand IBM Power, and it’s easy to see that they fall short. We’re helping organizations daily to get cloud SMART through our deep IBM expertise, data-driven sizing and cost-optimization, and unrivaled service.”
