Maintenance and preventive support of IBM Power (Linux, AIX, IBM i) and Lenovo systems.

For Powe7, Power8, Power9, Power9, Power10, PureFlex, Storwize, Spectrum Scale and Elastic Storage systems

We are specialists in the maintenance and technical support of AIX, Linux (Red Hat, SUSE and Ubuntu) and IBM i servers. We focus on preventive maintenance services, anticipating problems and permanently monitoring the health of their computer systems so that our customers can focus on what they do best: their business. This service is offered directly by our system engineers, with more than 15 years of experience and certified by our main technology partners such as IBM and Red Hat.

What do we include in our technical support services?

  • We carry out an initial audit of the state of the infrastructure in order to detect shortcomings, areas for improvement and opportunities for technological transformation in the medium term.
  • We continuously propose and implement improvements, using our extensive experience as consultants and system architects.
  • We perform an annual upgrade of all systems: including firmware, hypervisor and card upgrades, operating system patch installation, HMC upgrades, etc.
  • We optimize the use of existing resources: performance (at VIOS and operating system level), backups (IBM Spectrum Protect), fault tolerance (redundant configurations in all PowerVM layers), resource virtualization (SR-IOV, NPIV, vNIC, SEA, vSCSI, SSPs, SPPs), high availability (PowerHA, VM Recovery, Live Partition Mobility).
  • We minimize licensing costs (for 80% of our customers, this service alone far outweighs the total cost of our support service).
  • High level support for the whole infrastructure: although we focus on the systems part (IBM Power Systems, Lenovo Pureflex servers, we have (and know in depth) the whole of the most common infrastructures, including DB2, Informix, Oracle databases, SAP and SAS environments, application servers (WAS, Tomcat), etc.
  • Ability to include maintenance and support of backup infrastructure (IBM Spectrum Protect / TSM) and storage (IBM Storwize, Flash Systems, DSx000)
