IBM Power Systems, historically known and trusted for their high-performing, secure and reliable operating infrastructure, have fueled mission-critical workloads for decades. Breathing new life into these systems with IBM Power Virtual Server Managed Services at FNTS opens up a world of speed, scale, self-provisioning and efficiency in the IBM Cloud, which offers 200+ modernization and integration subscription services.

An IBM partner for more than 20 years, FNTS is a preferred value-added reseller of IBM Cloud and is one of the few IBM service providers in North America that can design, deliver and manage Power Systems services in both private and public cloud environments.

“Finding the expertise needed to maintain these core systems is not only becoming harder to find, but the skills required to innovate into the future are limited,” said FNTS President Kim Whittaker. “FNTS ensures peak performance and the most value out of these investments by accelerating time to value with IBM Power Virtual Server Managed Services.”

A scalable, cost-effective method of running IBM AIX, IBM i, and Linux workloads, IBM Power Virtual Server Managed Services from FNTS offer the security and high performance of IBM Power Systems, while allowing organizations to modernize at their own pace and price.
With Power Virtual Server Managed Services, FNTS provides:

  • Assessment of business and technical requirements to identify the most efficient cloud subscription models. FNTS reduces planning complexity and operational costs while improving service and response times.
  • Development of a project plan for cloud migration that keeps critical business applications running until migration is complete.
  • Ongoing management of the cloud environment, including monitoring, patching, backup and other system admin tasks.
  • Networking expertise to meet latency requirements and integrate IBM Cloud with other public and private clouds for a true hybrid cloud experience.

“Migrating and modernizing Power Systems with Power Virtual Server Managed Services can be overwhelming, costly and time consuming without the right expertise in place,” said Keith Zblewski, IBM Hybrid Cloud Product Manager at FNTS. “At FNTS, we become a trusted advisor by monitoring cloud consumption to ensure it aligns with budget expectations. Our dedicated and highly skilled IT professionals have vast knowledge on the intricacies of mature IBM environments and provide the latest upgrades, implementation tactics and ongoing support that position businesses for operational excellence in today’s demanding, fast-paced work environment.”
