Your business depends upon constant access to data and business applications, so you need to be able to recover from outages quickly—regardless of whether they’re because of scheduled system downtime for server upgrades, backups and batch processes, or unplanned outages caused by natural disasters.
During this session, you’ll learn how an effective high availability/disaster recovery (HA/DR) plan can lead to reduced downtime and easier management—causing fewer disruptions to the business.
Our customer had this to say about a disaster they experienced.
“This was about as massive an impact to an IT infrastructure as you can have. But our customers didn’t even realize we’d had an outage… Everything was destroyed just before the regular daily backup: if we were relying on tape backups, [WE] would have lost 24 hours of business data. As it was, we only lost a couple of minutes.”
Many of you are probably thinking…
“The IBM i (AS/400) never fails, why do I need HA/DR?”
We have seen many reasons that include:
- Power outages
- UPS failure
- Waterline leak
- Human error
- Hackers and cyber attacks
