As the supplier of the very first POWER8 processor-based servers in Europe, Northdoor remains at the cutting-edge of Power Systems solutions.

For companies that are looking to consolidate and update their existing Power Systems landscapes, Northdoor offers best-practice approaches around sizing, procurement, deployment and ongoing support. For companies aiming to extend their existing Power Systems landscapes – for example, by introducing high-availability solutions or by adding external storage – our extensive experience helps reduce risk and accelerate the transition.

The Fujitsu CS8000 is a unique platform that acts as a disk based target repository for backup, recovery, and archiving, supporting Mainframe (IBM z), Mid-Range (IBM i & p), and Open System environments either individually or all three simultaneously. It is an appliance that acts as a virtual management layer for these environments, allowing for significant consolidation opportunities. The benefits in deploying this solution are many, including high performance, massively scalable, agility, and large cost savings. Customers typically see a return on their investment in under 12 months.

The CS platform was first deployed for mainframe in 1997, so it has a long track record and pedigree. We introduce OPEN system connectivity in 2004, and S3 connectivity in 2014. It allows for tape to be used as a cost effective storage tier, while removing all the management overheads associated with tape. It is application agnostic and supports BRMS. It is widely deployed within the financial services sector throughout Europe, with many customers on 2nd or 3rd generations of the platform. A typical implementation within a complex environment can be as little as 4 weeks.
