With all the buzz about cloud computing, one might assume that traditional managed hosting is becoming obsolete. The reality is that managed hosting is a viable and growing market. Managed hosting serves an expanding range of solutions representing a fully-managed, IT-provisioned alternative to self-managed and cloud services.
Mainframe management for critical business applications
Many organizations continue to rely heavily on mainframe technology to support mission-critical and big data functions of their business. If that is true for your company, you may find yourself looking for ways to keep the mainframe lights on without risking the business interruptions, or incurring the high costs, that accompany redesigning your critical business applications. Simultaneously, you could be contending with a loss of internal skills to manage mainframe infrastructure, and be concerned about the prohibitive costs of replacing end-of-life mainframe equipment.
