Today’s business environment demands continuous availability, no matter what. There is no time for downtime and no tolerance for data loss. Industry regulations and service level agreements stipulate increasingly strict performance requirements that carry penalties for non-compliance. Customers and partners demand continuous availability. Your business needs a strong defense to protect it from the threat of disaster, server or storage failure, user error, and even downtime for routine maintenance. MIMIX Availability is designed to keep your business running without interruption – no matter what.
The easy way to protect the availability of even the most complex IBM i environments
This Executive Overview offers details on how MIMIX Availability has evolved into an advanced solution that offers faster recovery, stronger data protection, and a smarter way to manage high availability for IBM i. When evaluating any availability solution, there are a handful of critical functions that must be considered. This paper offers an overview of seven of the most essential availability functions and how each is addressed by MIMIX Availability. Read More
How it works
MIMIX Availability transparently replicates critical data and applications in real time from a production server to a recovery server. Leveraging the IBM i operating system’s remote journaling functionality, along with other change, capture, and replication mechanisms, MIMIX Availability ensures that the recovery server is always a complete, ready-to-run replica.
MIMIX Availability monitors for issues related to replication and switch readiness, reporting any problems in its browser-based status display and through email notification. Any information necessary to diagnose the problem and rapidly switch to the recovery server, which can be located anywhere in the world, is also provided. It is also easy to switch operations to the recovery server to eliminate downtime during production server maintenance.
When the production server is available again, MIMIX Availability resynchronizes the two servers by replicating any changes made on the recovery server back to the original server. Then, when you are ready, it is easy to switch users back to the production server.
Your recovery system is always “switch-ready” and available to assume responsibility for running your critical operations at a moment’s notice.
