What’s New in MIMIX 8.1?

  • A new automated virtual switch procedure allows you to test applications on the backup server without impacting production operations. A virtual switch activity window in VSP allows you to monitor changes made to the backup server and the eventual return to normal replication.
  • Continuous autofix technology detects and intelligently repairs exceptions found during replication and audits. This can significantly reduce day-to-day management requirements, while also enhancing performance. Full visibility into all objects requiring repair is provided through VSP.
  • Replication performance has been enhanced to keep pace with growing transaction volumes. High throughput environments benefit from enhancements to the way changes are applied to the backup server, while performance is improved for highly constrained environments through more flexible constraint handling.
  • Greater control of audit statuses allows administrators to tune audit results for their environment, reducing the number of reported exceptions and easing the audit management workload.
  • A new customizable, automated procedure for point-in-time operations enables tape-based backups or other custom processes to be performed on data from a user-defined point in time.
  • Faster, easier problem analysis and resolution is facilitated by default actions that guide administrators through the best approach for resolving synchronization issues. Objects on the production and backup servers can also now be compared side-by-side on the same screen with differences highlighted.
  • Additional information is provided in MIMIX Data Protection Reports to support the creation of optimal replication configurations.

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.
