    • Profile and password replication

  • + Business problem

    Many believe High Availability is expensive and out of reach, our cost model and design will allow many more to reap the benefits of a High Availability solution without the expense many have come to expect. The cost of the hardware has reduced significantly which has removed the initial barrier to having a High Availability Solution. HA4i adds the next component which is affordable and simple to use software to keep the data and objects in sync.

  • + Business opportunity

    High Availability is a growing segment of the market especially in the SMB area. For too long it has been seen as too expensive and out of reach for the majority of the IBM i® users. HA4i is attempting to address this by being affordable and simple; the initial cost is reduced significantly by the simplistic approach the product takes. It installs in minutes and takes just a few hours to get up and running with the basic processes to provide availability. Ongoing maintenance is minimal and it can be carried out with normal operational level staff. Other products concentrate on the high end market which provides a high rate of return for each install but cuts out the smaller customer because its too expensive. Our approach is to make it affordable for the smaller customer which provides a lower return per install but offers a larger install opportunity. With Version 8.1 we have changed the product installation to allow installation on IBM® PureFlex™ Systems which will allow High Availability hosting companies to replicate a base installation environment with ease.

  • + Return on investment

    High Availability is seen as an insurance policy and out of the price range of the smaller company. Our approach is to make the cost of the insurance policy affordable. Once installed the ROI can be improved, by moving some activities from the source to the target system avoiding downtime and performance problems caused when everything is running on a single system. Having the ability to install a fully functioning HA environment ready to receive the customers application data and objects reduces the overall deployment time for a High Availability Solution.

  • + Competitive advantage

    HA4i

    Priced for the SMB market place has brought High Availability into the reach of everyone. Designed with simplicity at its core and using the IBM® Licensed Program Product technology it is installed and updated using the same IBM Licensed Program commands which are used daily by the IBM i® operations group. It does not take a consultant days to install or specialist to configure. Simplicity is important, an over engineered solution is not only costly to install but also costly to manage. HA4i concentrates on what is the most important asset of any company, its data!  Version 8.1 has been updated to allow installation on IBM® PureFlex™ Systems.
