TORONTO, ON, October 28th, 2016 – Data Integrity Inc. in partnership with TeraGo Inc. (TSX:TGO) has launched the AIX Cloud, a Canadian service offering that allows organizations to manage their AIX workloads from the cloud. Data Integrity is one of IBM Canada’s key Power-AIX systems partners, certified in the design, implementation, migration, and management of Power Systems environments. TeraGo is a leading Canadian- full service IT company that offers businesses cloud, IaaS, connectivity and colocation services, supporting over 3,000 workloads for medium and enterprise businesses.
“CIOs continue to face significant challenges surrounding the technologies that they are unable to shift to the cloud, particularly core production technologies such as AIX. For customers that currently use AIX and Power Systems as one of their operating system environments, there are a number of benefits to adopting the cloud or as-a-service model from a vendor like Data Integrity,” said Mark Schrutt, VP IT Services & Enterprise Application at IDC Canada.
Data Integrity’s AIX Cloud service offers two models – a multi-tenant and a single-tenant cloud, delivered in Canada from TeraGo’s Mississauga datacenter and fully managed by Data Integrity. It provides an easily accessible option for buyers to gain access to AIX skills and scale-out platforms based on IBM Power8 technology, with a robust network infrastructure, at a fraction of the cost of an on premise solution. Canadian customers of the AIX Cloud service can be reassured that their data privacy, governance, and management will be subject to Canadian regulations.
“We are thrilled to be in partnership with Data Integrity as we believe our expertise in offering cloud infrastructure and Data Integrity’s expertise in AIX Managed services will provide a unique and agile solution offering to our customers” said Daren Hanson, Vice President, Sales TeraGo.
“AIX is not going away anytime soon and we are confident the Data Integrity AIX Cloud will provide cost and resourcing benefits to our customers,” said Rob Seager, Vice President at Data Integrity.
