Enterprises with mission critical applications are exploring the benefits of disaster recovery sites for their data centers to ensure business continuity. Special network technology is needed to ensure that site failover and failback occurs reliably and predictably. An ideal solution should provide reliable network connections, manage inbound and outbound traffic over multiple WAN links, failover to a secondary data center if all links at the primary data center are down, and eliminate deployment barriers and costs of multi-homing with BGP (Border Gateway Protocol).
For AIX IT departments looking to take the next step in data protection strategies, CDP is an essential consideration.

This white paper provides a basic understanding of the building blocks of IT and business continuity—from understanding the concepts of disaster recovery and information availability to calculating the business impact of downtime and selecting the right software solution.
Downtime and data loss pose intolerable risks to every business today. From IT departments to the Board Room, managers have seen the importance of business uptime and data protection to continued success, productivity and profitability.
This paper presents an overview of iSeries high availability to companies that are beginning to explore this powerful business continuity technology. The critical components of high availability solutions are detailed in this paper, including data replication engines, system monitors, role swap capabilities, and the importance of autonomic processes.
Until recently, System i high availability solutions were reserved mostly for large enterprises. Now that high availability is dramatically easier to use and less expensive to own and manage, the picture has changed.
Journaling? RAID? Vaulting? Mirroring? High availability? Know your data protection and recovery options! Download this information-packed 29-page report that reviews the spectrum of IBM i (i5/OS) and AIX resilience and recovery technologies and best practices choices, including the latest, next-generation solutions.
For IT departments looking to bring their AIX environments up to the next step in data protection, IBM’s PowerHA (HACMP) connects multiple servers to shared storage via clustering. This offers automatic recovery of applications and system resources if a failure occurs with the primary server.
This white paper describes how HP LeftHand SANs can help you deploy VMware Infrastructure 3 (VI3) software more effectively through volume snapshots, SmartClone volumes, volume migration, and high-availability features. With HP LeftHand SAN and VI3, organizations can reclaim valuable data center space and reduce their power and cooling requirements.
In June 2011, IBM commissioned Forrester Consulting to examine the total economic impact and potential return on investment (ROI) that enterprises may realize by deploying Storwize V7000.

This whitepaper looks at why companies choose Riak
over a relational database. We focus specifically on
availability, scalability, and the key/value data model. Then
we analyze the decision points that should be considered
when choosing a non-relational solution and review data
modeling, querying, and consistency guarantees. Finally, we
end with simple patterns for building common applications
in Riak using its key/value design, dealing with data conflicts
that emerge in an eventually consistent system, and discuss
In today’s global economy, innovation matters. For teams to innovate rapidly and with great frequency, they must be able to clearly communicate and closely collaborate.
Miscommunication, misunderstanding and misinterpretation only leads to costly errors, bottlenecked business processes and market misfires. Most of these issues are avoidable.
A convergence of low-cost but high-quality technology and a
highly competitive business environment is making video
collaboration a channel of choice for today’s information
workers and decision makers. The availability of relatively
low-cost technology—including high-quality video conferencing
equipment, high-bandwidth networks and easy-to-use applications
and tools—is bringing video collaboration within reach of today’s workforce.
The impact on innovation and productivity—as well as critical
business processes, from customer service to problem-solving—is only just starting to be felt.
