Google Cloud offers IBM Power SystemsSyah Ismail
Google Cloud now offers IBM Power Systems as part of its cloud solutions. Customers can now run IBM Power Systems (AIX, IBM i or Linux on IBM Power) as a service on Google Cloud.
For organisations using a hybrid cloud strategy, IBM Power Systems are important tools. Because of their performance and ability to support mission-critical workloads such as SAP applications and Oracle databases, enterprise customers have been consistently looking for options to run IBM Power Systems in the cloud. IBM Power Systems for Google Cloud offers a path to do just that, providing the best of both the cloud and on-premise worlds. You can run enterprise workloads like SAP and Oracle on the IBM Power servers that you’ve come to trust while starting to take advantage of all the technical capabilities and favourable economics that Google Cloud offers.
IBM Power Systems on Google Cloud also offers:
- Integrated billing: You can deploy the solution through the Google Cloud Marketplace and take advantage of integrated Google Cloud billing. This means you can take advantage of this offering just like any other Google Cloud service and get a unified bill from Google Cloud.
- Private API access: Google Cloud’s Private API Access technology lets you access Google Cloud resources privately while enabling all IBM Power Systems resources (LPARs) to use private IP spaces that you choose. It’s secure by design and enables ultra-low latency between the IBM Power servers and Google Compute Engine virtual machines.
- Integrated customer support: Google Cloud manages customer support, giving you one point of contact for any issues.
- Rapid deployment: An intuitive new management console enables quick ramp and rapid deployment of the solution.
