ACS offers two levels of Remote Services for the IBM i platform: 24/7 IBM i Remote Monitoring and 24/7 IBM i Remote Administration.

IBM i Remote Monitoring

  • IBM i outages and problems that occur during off-hours can wreak havoc on your organization if they don’t get resolved before the next business day begins. ACS’s iBM i Remote Monitoring is a cost-effective service to ensure that IBM i problems are addressed in a timely manner, causing minimal impact and disruption the next business day. With ACS’s IBM i Remote Monitoring, our IBM i technicians are watching your environment 24/7 for errors and alerts. When problems occur, we escalate those to your staff using your custom escalation policies and procedures.

IBM i Remote Administration

  • ACS’s Remote Administration Services include 24/7 remote monitoring of your IBM i environment for errors and alerts. But in addition to Remote Monitoring, ACS’s staff is also responsible for problem determination, problem resolution, vendor management, change management, PTF management, backups, restores, batch jobs, and in general, full administration of the environment. Through advanced automation and economies of scale, we can provide these services very efficiently and cost effectively- typically at costs lower than hiring your own IBM i administration staff.
  • By having ACS remotely monitor or remotely administer your IBM i environment, you will be able to realize higher uptime and reliability at reduced support costs. As a result, you will be able to focus your staff on more valuable business activities other than monitoring message queues and job statuses. Our staff members average more than 10 years of industry experience and have exceptional skills in supporting IBM i environments for clients worldwide.
