Chicago, IL, United States, 2017/03/15 - Ensono offers a managed solution that enables clients to upgrade to the latest IBM i v7.3 system, providing its users with more support for running critical applications - Ensono.com.
The addition of a fully managed IBM i suite of services, including remote infrastructure management (RIM), Cloud and Dedicated, is a pivotal step forward in expanding Ensono’s hybrid IT capabilities.
Ensono walks clients through the process of shifting from older i/OS systems such as IBM i v5.4 to its fully supported IBM i service platform. By switching to the latest IBM i v7.3 system through Ensono’s managed IBM i services, clients are on an IBM supported platform while being in a flexible use environment. Ensono scales resources based on applications’ needs, offering processing power based on an organization’s application requirements.
For clients not ready to upgrade to the latest version of IBM i, Ensono can still support older versions and help clients upgrade as appropriate. For example, a client can start by using Ensono’s RIM capability having their existing environment managed in their data center. Ensono would then help the client optimize their environment and upgrade it to move to Ensono’s IBM i cloud environment using newer versions and taking advantage of the scalable capabilities of Ensono’s cloud offering.
“Our IBM i users continue to look to add increased value to their organization by deploying scalable and resilient solutions that give them the tools they need to move towards a hybrid environment,” said IBM Manager of Business Partner Programs for Power Systems Brett Flory. “Ensono’s products and services that support IBM i showcase how IBM i on Power enables higher performance and optimization for top-quality hybrid IT operations.”
Through Ensono, users can avoid making upfront hardware purchases, freeing up CapEx dollars for new business investments. Ensono’s support model offers IT teams more flexibility to focus on innovation to help their company tap into new opportunities.
“Reducing risk and driving higher efficiencies in infrastructure and applications is critical for businesses today working to self-fund new innovation projects,” said Tim Beerman, CTO at Ensono. “With IBM i offerings, Ensono can continue to help enterprise CIOs reduce cost and risk by enabling them to seamlessly operate and optimize their infrastructures. Ensono clients can leverage IBM i without the costs and manpower associated with running this mission-critical system.”
The combination of these services provides clients the flexibility to outsource IBM i without significant constraints
Ensono will also showcase its IBM mainframe solutions innovations later this month at IBM InterConnect in Las Vegas. Ken Harper, a director of mainframe services at Ensono, will present on March 22 at 8 am. PT for the InterConnect audience.
