MIMIX Global is part of the MIMIX Availability product family. Its purpose is two-fold. First, it extends traditional two-node HA topologies to multi-node environments where it simplifies switching between nodes while maintaining protection to all other nodes. Second, it extends and enhances PowerHA for IBM i technologies by providing protection for SYSBAS objects and applications and integrating PowerHA technologies into the Vision Solutions Portal (VSP) for simple, centralized management and monitoring from any device with a browser.

  • MIMIX Global - Base Edition supports 3 or more fully switchable MIMIX nodes and is offered as a companion to MIMIX Professional or MIMIX Enterprise.
  • The MIMIX Global - PowerHA Editions extend and enhance PowerHA for IBM i technologies. In addition to protecting SYSBAS objects and applications, they fully integrate PowerHA technologies under the VSP for simple, centralized management. Available standalone or as companions to MIMIX Enterprise, the PowerHA Editions of MIMIX include: MIMIX Global - IASP Edition (supports IBM i OS and V7000 based replication technologies) and MIMIX Global - SAN Edition (adds support for DS8000 SAN based replication to the IASP edition technologies).
