Internet Initiative Japan Inc. (IIJ) announced the addition of the IIJ GIO Power-i Service to the IIJ GIO service lineup.
 
The IIJ GIO Power-i Service is a cloud service for running IBM i on the IBM PureFlex System which is integrated system with unified management of compute, storage, networking and virtualization resources.
 
Users only have to select the appropriate servers and networks from a menu to build an asset-less, low-cost system environment that is scaled perfectly to the operational capacity and needs of the client.
 
IBM i is renowned for its high-performance, reliable business-systems environment, which has been used by various companies all over the world for many years.

However, with fewer system-administrator replacements and other issues facing users recently, there has been a growing demand to move this system to the cloud to reduce the operational overhead and at the same time contribute to BCP.

With this system, clients can ensure the smooth continued use of existing system assets, optimize TCO through effective outsourcing, reduce operational overhead, and support BCP strategies.
 
IIJ Global will continue to provide high value-added solutions taking advantage of various synergies within the IIJ Group such as the IIJ GIO Service and while working with strategic partners with experience in building business systems using IBM i, we will provide one-stop shopping, from infrastructure to business applications, and support those clients who are moving their business systems to the cloud.
