The Challenge:

CIO directive to exit the datacenter and move 100% of workload to the “cloud”. We assisted the client with a POC of IBM Power on Google Cloud helping to plan, migrate and test a variety of LPAR/workloads into GCP.

Converge Solution:

The long-term solution would have been to migrate an initial 82 LPAR’s of AIX which make up the clients Non-Production environment from on-premise to GCP. The client did also review and evaluate Power on IBM Cloud concurrently.
