InfoSystems Achieves Certification for IBM System i Platform, Provides Critical Support for Businesses Needing Upgrades
CHATTANOOGA, Tennessee – October 10, 2012 - InfoSystems, one of the fastest-growing technology solutions providers in the Southeast, earned certification for IBM System i sales and support last spring. InfoSystems, an IBM Premier Partner, is fully certified to provide comprehensive support for the the entire family of operating systems on the IBM Power hardware platform, which also includes AIX and Linux.
With IBM System i Version 5, Release 4, approaching the end of support, businesses that may be behind on patches and updates will need to take action to ensure they are running a current, supported system version. InfoSystems helps businesses evaluate the upgrade path to a newer version that will allow them to maintain support for their systems. Upgrades may require the installation of Program Temporary Fixes (PTFs), which are released periodically to fix known problems, add new functions and keep systems operating efficiently. Some PTFs are required to be installed before systems can be upgraded to a newer version.
InfoSystems supports IBM System i customers with quarterly performance tune-up and patch management, boosting performance and efficiency through periodic maintenance. The quarterly tune-up service includes installing all PTFs, checking for low-level errors that may not show up in regular alerts, checking the backups and operating system and thoroughly cleaning all machines to keep them dust-free and looking new.
IBM System i customers that have not previously utilized support services can begin with a system evaluation that will identify the system version and patches that are currently installed. InfoSystems will then provide a roadmap of necessary PTFs and version upgrades to get the system to the desired version and most recent patch cycle. InfoSystems will then complete all necessary health checks, clean and polish hardware items and ensure all systems are at peak performance.
InfoSystems serves enterprise and small to medium-sized businesses in the Southeast. Major areas of expertise encompass data management, hardware, software and communications, and are backed by certifications in data storage, virtualization, cloud, server infrastructure, backup and disaster recovery, network security, software development, voice service and unified communications. iAssurance Managed Services are available for a proactive and predictable investment in 24/7 reliability and stability.
