With the rapid rate of change in the IT space there can be many unforeseen trouble spots but there are also opportunities. The push to the cloud continues to gain momentum and that trend is not likely to end any time soon. In fact, it is most likely that some version of the cloud will be part of most IT infrastructures for a long time to come. We recognize this and help our customers take full advantage of these opportunities.

At Big Data Supply, Inc. we do a lot of different things and among them is cloud services. Where we are unique is our deep experience in the IBM space. Our history of implementing and supporting IBM Power Systems gives our customers a unique advantage when moving to the cloud. We work with IBM iSeries, AS/400, AS/400 running i5OS, AIX and Linux.

Working with these systems over time gives us a greater understanding of the environments that translate into an easier transition to the cloud for our customers. We host our own IBM cloud instance. As noted on our IBM cloud hosting section of our site:

The core resources are delivered using an IBM PureFlex Chassis and iSeries Nodes with IBM Storewize SANs for backend storage. This powerful combination provides the flexibility needed in a cloud environment for IBM i systems and the ability to quickly provision resources at an affordable price.


Cloud Credits

So while this is a great story to tell, it actually gets better.

Another important aspect of our business is regarding used IT assets. We purchase used IT equipement that is being replaced by companies, including hard drives, data tapes, servers, tape drives, and more. Many customers have found that the convenience of the service saves them time and money. In addition, they recoup some of the cost of the equipment in the process.

With IBM customers there is an added option that can be very attractive. While we would normally buy existing infrastructure, what we do for IBM customers who are making the transition to the cloud is provide cloud credits as part of the process. Simply put, we help our customers turn their existing hardware into a cloud environment. Having completed this kind of transformation for many customers we can turn a situation that can often be very stressful into one that is efficient and cost effective.
