MIMIX Availability transparently replicates applications, data and system values in real time from a production server to a backup server. Leveraging IBM i’s advanced remote journaling features, along with other change capture and replication mechanisms, MIMIX Availability ensures that the secondary system is always a complete, ready-to-run backup system. If you need to shut down the primary server for maintenance, you can rapidly switch operations to the backup server, which can be located anywhere in the world. In addition, MIMIX Availability can detect when the primary system is unexpectedly unavailable and, at your option, minimize business downtime by automating the failover to the backup system. When the primary server is available again, MIMIX Availability will resynchronize the two servers by replicating any changes made on the secondary system. Then, when you are ready, you can easily switch users back to the primary system. MIMIX Availability autonomously seeks out discrepancies in the replicated data and corrects any errors, without the need for operator intervention. Your backup system is always “switch-ready”—available to assume responsibility for running your critical operations in a moment’s notice.
