      mindSHIFT Cloud for IBM i: Hosted LPAR – We offer mindSHIFT cloud services specific to IBM i Power Systems (including AS/400, iSeries and System i) customers. Logical partitioning (LPAR) is an innovative approach to server management that offers the benefits and efficiencies of server consolidation without sacrificing the flexibility and scalability of maintaining separate servers. We host LPARs (HLPAR) on servers owned and maintained by us in our data centers so you can take advantage of LPAR’s benefits without the hassle, time and cost of owning and maintaining your own equipment. Organizations also use mindSHIFT hosted LPARs to obtain a high-availability solution, in which a second LPAR provides backup, hot standby, load-balancing, and compliance for their primary production server.
