Tectrade IBM Power Cloud

Your data and your costs under control

The strength and reliability of IBM Power in a (hybrid) Cloud environment? Whether you opt for an on-premises environment or want to go to the Cloud, we can offer you seamless integration with the IBM Power Cloud.

The Tectrade Power Cloud consists of 3 layers namely, Data Centre, IBM Power and Storage/Backup:

Data centre
The Power Cloud is installed across two Tier4 data centres in the Netherlands. Each data centre has a dedicated Internet exchange with direct connections to hyperscalers as Azure, AWS and IBM Cloud.

IBM Power
The Power Cloud is installed with the latest IBM Power9 technology. Virtualization takes place on the basis of PowerVM & PowerVC Cloud. With the Power9 technology it is possible to efficiently host IBM i, AIX and Linux environments.

The Power Cloud has high-end IBM storage on the basis of Flash (SSD) and Spinning Disks (DASD) that is accessible on the IBM Power9 environment via the virtualization layer. Use is made of a disc-based virtual tape library (VTL) for backup and disaster recovery. Both storage as well as VTL is replicated to the secondary data centre.
