Companies often need more than tape backup to protect critical applications running on AIX operating environments. Learn options and strategies, including how continuous data protection (CDP) technology makes any point-in-time recovery possible and how EchoStream technology has significantly improved the recovery time and data recovery points for AIX.
Continuous member service is an important deliverable for credit unions, and. the continued growth in assets and members means that the impact of downtime is affecting a larger base and is therefore potentially much more costly. Learn how new data protection and recovery technologies are making a huge impact on downtime for credit unions that depend on AIX-hosted applications.
For IT departments looking to bring their AIX environments up to the next step in data protection, IBM's PowerHA (HACMP) connects multiple servers to shared storage via clustering. This offers automatic recovery of applications and system resources if a failure occurs with the primary server. But clustering only makes the server resilient, not the data storage. That is where real-time replication of the data store is essential. Learn all about how AIX data replication works and how it benefits HACMP clusters.
This information packed 29-page report reviews the technology spectrum of resilience and recovery solutions available for IBM i (i5/OS) and AIX environments running on IBM Power Systems, including the latest, next-generation solutions. The goal of the paper is to help prepare IT professionals to better evaluate and adopt appropriate AIX and IBM i technologies for disaster recovery.
Mail servers continue to deal with ballooning message volumes and management challenges. Email archiving software provides a viable solution, particularly when granular government regulations apply. Simply by retaining messages, all companies archive email whether they realize it or not. The real question is what policies your company should have regarding those archives -- and what technologies and techniques should be employed to ensure both regulatory compliance and a scalable, efficient mail infrastructure. InfoWorld contributing editor Logan Harbaugh offers concise advice based on long experience planning and deploying email archiving systems.
This whitepaper by Marc Staimer, Dragon Slayer Consulting, reviews urgent issues facing organizations such as the inability to recover and restore data when required and mounting financial and legal risks. It also covers an on-demand approach that instantly and cost-effectively solves these issues.
This paper provides an overview of the challenges businesses face today and how IT addresses the explicit need to manage network costs, provide choice and flexibility and reduce complexity. In addition, this paper highlights the difference between proprietary and standards-based networking and how innovative networking solutions that embrace a standards-based approach allow organizations to break free from restrictive proprietary networking solutions and enable better business outcomes.
In this new eBook: Strategies for Cloud Storage, Data Protection and Disaster Recovery, IT author and strategist, Don Jones, examines the new approaches and capabilities offered by cloud storage and cloud-based data protection solutions.
A rewind button for applications, files and transactions? That’s what continuous data protection (CDP) technology provides to managers of IBM AIX and i5/OS operating environments. CDP rapidly recovers accidentally deleted or otherwise corrupted data and provides many other valuable benefits.
Learn options and strategies, including how continuous data protection (CDP) technology makes any point-in-time recovery possible and how EchoStream technology has significantly improved the recovery time and data recovery points for AIX.
