Litmis: All The Reasons, They’re Piling Up

by | Nov 7, 2017

The idea of cloud hosting on the IBM i (iSeries, AS/400) servers has become increasingly popular over the last year. Chances are if you have discussed cloud hosting options for the IBM i that “Litmis Spaces” has come up in the conversation.


Why are “IBMers” choosing Litmis Spaces to be their cloud hosting provider?

Reason 1: “I like your pricing” (starting at $157/month!)

People often tell us that they chose Litmis Spaces for their IBM i hosting needs is because of our no-nonsense, transparent, and low-cost pricing. We love hearing this because it is proof that our message is ringing true.  We were users of other Windows and Linux hosting environments and saw the great simplicity they offered.  We thought: Why not IBM i?

We don’t hide our pricing. Check it out here!


Reason 2: No Time To Do It Right The First Time  

We’ve  observed over the years that things like meeting regulatory compliance as it relates to facilities aren’t exactly what people want to worry about.  That’s where Litmis Spaces comes in with a state-of-the art, highly secure, commercial data center that is HIPAA, SOC 2, and PCI Compliant, gated, and staffed 24/7.  With Litmis Spaces, you can stop worrying about the facility that your IBM i (iSeries, AS/400) is hosted in. This is one more way to make your business more resilient to change.


Reason 3: Hardware Flexibility

Sometimes predicting your business’ growth is a guessing game and you end up buying more server than you need.  Having a hosted server affords the flexibility and convenience of only paying for what you use and adding more when you need it.  Just shoot us an email and we can add more CPW, RAM, or Disk in short order.


Reason 4: In-house Apps and New IBM i Versions

Litmis Spaces gives you access to the latest versions of the OS for testing purposes (both ISV and home grown software).  Not only does it meet the need of testing new IBM i OS features but it is also provides good exposure to what a hosted IBM i (iSeries, AS/400) experience can look like.


Reason 5: IBM Dropping 720 Hardware Support

In case you missed it, IBM announced End Of Service of Power 720 in 2019.  Learn more here.  That’s significant for those that want to continue having their hardware supported.  The year 2019 is closer than we think.  Maybe now’s the time to consider 3rd party hosting of your IBM i (iSeries, AS/400) .


Reason 6: Disaster Recovery

This is likely the most “no-brainer” part of having a third party host your IBM i (iSeries, AS/400) .  A Disaster Recovery scenario is defined by the necessity of having a machine in a separate location.  We can work with your existing DR software provider or if this is your first time doing DR we can make a recommendation of one of our partners.
