How does your IBM i System Support your Business?

The IBM i (AS/400, iSeries, System i) is one of the widest used general purpose business systems. With a long history the platform provides access to a large suite of business applications, with an enviable reputation for reliability and support. As iSeries resources and experts become harder to find, many organisations are finding it difficult to manage and maintain their IBM i infrastructure.

Advent One has over 20 years of experience in providing support to customers running the iSeries family of products and as requirements have changed we have continually updated our platform and environment to offer a world class IBM i managed service to clients.

We are hosting a lunch with our IBM i experts to discuss the challenges that IBM i customers are facing in managing and maintaining their infrastructure, in a secure way. 

Date:  Thursday July 15th, 2021
Time: 12:30 – 3PM
Location: The Imperial, 2-8 Bourke St, Melbourne VIC 3000

We are offering a free discovery workshop with our system experts to evaluate your requirements.

Using the latest hardware and software technologies available, with a focus on providing reliable automated processes, we will ensure your infrastructure is secure, available and performing as expected. In addition, our dedicated team can help alleviate resource challenges, allowing you to focus on running your business.

My IBM i infrastructure is aging and approaching end-of-support

The Advent One POWER as a Service uses the latest IBM Power9 server technology, providing greater performance, reducing software costs and improving security, availability and functionality.

I want to be able to review the performance and operations of my environment

Our PlatformONE Managed Service provides custom dashboards and real-time performance monitoring through our customer portal.

I need to have a robust and tested DR solution

Our solution is based on IBM Storage replication, providing a proven and reliable disaster recovery capability (without the issues of journal based software replication). Further, through our managed services platform, your data is replicated to a second secure data centre, with duplicate IBM Power System and Storage infrastructure.

I have a DR solution but am having difficulty in managing it and controlling costs

Advent One leverage the latest IBM storage technology to deliver storage based replication, over a high speed, low latency communication link. By removing expensive journal-based software replication, we eliminate the complexity of providing a highly reliable DR solution. Furthermore, Fail-Over to DR can be performed regularly and with total confidence.

I have a requirement to have 24/7 system availability

Your data is always replicated to our secure DR site, by utilising flash copy technology, we take an instant copy of your data and save to our secure VTL Tape library, eliminating any outage required for daily backup.

I am having difficulty in managing current backup solution

We leverage a proven FlashCopy based backup solution, with IBM storage, IBM BRMS backup software and VTL tape technology. We provide a reliable and automated solution, giving you confidence that all your data is securely managed, with 24×7 access.

Our auditors require data encryption

We implement data encryption at rest and in-flight for all disk and virtual tape backups.

I need to eliminate physical tape-based backup solutions

Our backups, using VTL (virtual tape lib technology), remove the risk associated with physical tape media or drive failure and eliminate the requirement and hassle of physical media handling.

I struggle with insufficient CPU/Disk/Memory capacity

Our solution has CPU, memory and disk capacity available which can be provisioned immediately, we can dynamically increase the capacity available for your business workloads. This provides a flexible and agile platform for your business.

I am experiencing poor system performance

Our specialists work with you to analyse your environment and identify any issues. Our solution is based on Power9 server technology, and IBM disk storage based on 100% NVMe flash to minimise and quickly resolve performance issues.

I want to move to a data centre, off-site

Our platform is located in Australian Tier 3 data centres with cost-efficient communication links.

I need to move to a supported IBM i Operating System level

We do migrate your application environment to a currently supported IBM software level i.e. IBM i 7.3 or 7.4 (if your application will enable this). Options available for support IBM i 7.1 and 7.2 if required
