IBM Legacy System Management at Baseline

Old books lined up on a bookshelf

November 3, 2015 Legacy System Blog Articles

While updating to new software can be a headache for many reasons, maintaining an older IT platform can make protecting your data a headache. That’s why finding the right expertise to manage your legacy system is critical, and why we provide system management for IBM Power, IBM i (AS400) and AIX.


If It Isn’t Broken, Why Fix It?

If your platform is effective for your company, you shouldn’t need to change it. Steve Will, the chief architect for IBM i, states that “a good strategy does not need to change very often, or very much.” Here at Baseline, we agree with that statement.

Switching to a new platform can be unnecessarily costly and cumbersome, only to deliver the same results you had before. That being said, it’s no trade secret that skills to manage older systems are becoming scarce. That’s where we come in.


Baseline Carries On Your Legacy

Legacy system users used to weigh the benefits of keeping an existing system with the risks of security concerns. This is no longer the case.

We have the skills you need to manage and secure your business-critical data – even on an older platform. We pride ourselves in ensuring that companies have disaster recovery (DR) solutions with a 100% success rate, without needing to make any excessive, inconvenient changes to their current IT environment. We make the longevity of your systems even longer, increasing your return on investment (ROI) and ensuring that your business operations are always seamless and secure.

For IBM systems, we provide:

Don’t waste your money on a second site of hardware and software as a recovery target, when you can still get secure and redundant systems while minimizing your capital expenditure. We can host your platform and manage it, so you aren’t at risk for downtime or data loss. Private cloud hosting also minimizes both planned and unplanned downtime, while maximizing your revenue and reliability.

We don’t just keep your data safe in the event of a disaster – we also get your applications back up and running immediately, helping you meet your established recovery point objective (RPO) and recovery time objective (RTO). There’s no reason you should be forced to toss your tried-and-trusted platform, or that your data shouldn’t be secure and continuous.
