Traditional backup systems fail to meet the database protection and recovery requirements of modern organizations. These systems require ever-growing backup windows, negatively impact performance in mission-critical production databases, and deliver recovery time objectives (RTO) and recovery point objectives (RPO) measured in hours or even days, failing to meet the requirements of high-volume, high transactional databases -- potentially costing millions in lost productivity and revenue, regulatory penalties, and reputation damage due to an outage or data loss.
Mid-sized businesses have long struggled to protect their IT systems. Many firms are inadequately protected and mistakenly think that a disaster is rare and won’t happen to them anytime soon. This custom Yankee Group Report uses customer interviews, statistical data and Yankee Group SMB survey results to examine disaster recovery (DR) issues.
The Choices from many reputable suppliers of IT managed services can appear very much alike.

This paper serves as a field guide to help you identify key characteristics that set a critical managed IT service apart from even highly capable general-purpose offerings.
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.
Replication has become a catchall phrase that while gaining in allure is also gaining in confusion – especially in the mid-tier where data is just as important as the high-end, but IT staffing and budgets are far more limited. IT people as well as vendors have a tendency to lump all data movement functions together as replication, regardless of the method or the reason.
Virtualization is a revolutionary technology that has emerged as one of the hottest trends in the IT segment. If you are not already leveraging the server virtualization wave as a means to deploy cost effective Disaster Recovery, then use this paper as a catalyst to transform your business today: virtualization enables greater efficiencies, faster application and data recovery, and overall cost savings.
