This product automates the apply of journal receiver data to a database on a remote server. The data is carried to the remote server via the IBM® Remote Journal technology, DR4i will apply the data from the receiver to the local database either on receiver change or on entry receipt.

This is not a replacement for the High Availability products but a Disaster Recovery Tool. As a service provider you could use this tool to provide data vaulting to your customers, you would store the data and provide services wrapped around this tool to backup the data or manage the environment for the customer. This product is aimed at the low end user who relies on tape back up or backup site recovery contracts.

DR4i has been packaged to allow easy deployment to a Pureflex™ system with a full PHP/Easycom interface already included with the package.
