  1. Hello all,
    a nice list :-) I just wanted to add that we at RZKH.de are located in germany, not in denmark.

    Best regards,

    Hi Joe

    I believe Bluechip might well have an IBM i cloud proposition, although it’s not explicit from the website. That said, Bluechip have been supporting the i platform for many years and I would be very surprised if they didn’t have a cloud offering.

    • Joe Hertvik says:

      Thanks, Steve. You’re right about their Web site not having much about IBM i. I went to their site and searched on “IBM”, “IBM i”, “iSeries”, and “AS/400″ and nothing came up. I went through most of their pages that might have anything to do with IBM i or hosting and they seemed focused on Microsoft, Citrix, Symantec, but no IBM products whatever.

      This is the same problem I’m having with Sungard. It seems like they are doing something with IBM i but when you look for it, there’s nothing there. It could be a case where they do it for customers who ask for it. However, the community list is for companies that advertise their IBM i hosting capabilities, it’s obvious from their Web site they have these capabilities, and it’s verifiable. There’s been a few companies we haven’t put on the list because we couldn’t verify their offerings.

      So with no offense to Bluechip or Sungard or any other vendor in the same boat, I’m going to leave them off the list until we can verifiably prove that they have IBM i hosting capabilities. However, if someone can point me to their Web site offering IBM i hosting services, I’m put them on the list that same day. Otherwise, we start filling up the list with people who can’t fill the communities needs.

      Thanks…Joe

      • Blue Chip says:

        Hi Joe,

        It appears you have the wrong Blue Chip. I came across this post after noticing Steve’s reference to us (thanks Steve!) and noticed your search for details on our IBM i offering. As you mentioned finding a lot of Microsoft, Symantec etc. it looks to me as though you have the ‘other’ Blue Chip, another IT provider under the same name. We can be found at http://www.bluechip.co.uk.

        We do indeed have an IBM i cloud offering and are currently updating the website content. You may find the following page useful as a reference however, as this looks at our overall IaaS offering; http://www.bluechip.co.uk/managed-data-centre-services/blue-chip-infrastructure-service-iaas-solutions

        As an Online Marketing Executive at Blue Chip, I won’t be best placed to provide further details, however if you would like me to put you in contact with someone here who can then please do not hesitate to let me know.

        Regards,

        Nick Gaunt

  5. We have IBM i hosting through our managed services practice here at Sirius.

    • Joe Hertvik says:

      Thanks, Patrick. Is Sirius Computer hosting your IBM I or is it another company? Wasn’t sure which Sirius you’re referring to: Sirius Computer or Sirius XM?

      If not Sirius Computer, are you able to say who’s hosting your IBM i setup?

      Joe

    Premise, Inc. Fast response, extremely knowledgeable. They were able to rapidly architect a solution for our company’s data center migration project to include replicating data between the old and new systems while maintaining replication on the current systems.
