Assure MIMIX for AIX®
Protect IBM AIX servers from downtime and lost data with easy, automated solutions for high availability and disaster recovery
Downtime hurts. For your business, any outage, planned or unplanned, interrupts business operations, disrupts delivery of goods and services, and damages relationships with partners and customers.
Assure MIMIX for AIX is a real-time, automated high availability solution for IBM AIX servers that can help eliminate downtime and enable data to be recovered from any point in time. It guards your business against unplanned and planned outages and lost data.
It works by paring efficient, real-time replication to a recovery server with continuous monitoring of cluster and application resources.
If an outage is detected, applications are failed over to the recovery server – releasing storage resources, managing IP addresses, reestablishing replication, mounting file systems, and switching your application.
System availability is about more than keeping operations running after major disasters, planned or unplanned outages.
“Micro” disasters, such as database corruption or data loss due to human error, can cost your business just as dearly. Which means affordable, manageable real-time disaster recovery protection for AIX applications and data is essential.
Assure MIMIX DR for AIX uses real-time replication and true continuous data protection (CDP) technology to deliver near-instantaneous data recovery from any point in time and enables production server rollback to recover from rolling disasters.
It supports the recovery needs of any AIX environment, with efficient replication across any distance, between mixed storage and operating system versions, and between physical, virtual and cloud platforms.
“A huge benefit is the peace of mind that comes with knowing that our data is being replicated in real-time and we can easily bring it back very quickly if necessary.”
IBM PowerHA SystemMirror for AIX is trusted by organizations around the world to provide high availability for their AIX application server.
Assure MIMIX DR for AIX integrates with IBM PowerHA for AIX to add point-in-time data recovery and offsite protection against regional or site outages to their PowerHA solution.
It works by efficiently and securely replicating AIX data and applications to a local or remote recovery server in real time. The recovery server may be physical, virtual or in the cloud with any storage or AIX version.
It also provides an always current, read/write-ready copy of your AIX data, and is ready for data recovery or failover whenever needed. True Continuous Data Protection enables data to be recovered from any point in time at the push of a button.
“How do we value our data? It is essential to our survival. If the systems go down at our primary productions site, all business units globally would not be able to perform transactions and the business stops. At DKSH, having a top quality disaster recovery capability is not negotiable.”
Migrations play an important role in keeping your AIX servers up to date, efficient and productive, whether you need to refresh AIX hardware, reorganize storage, consolidate your data center or adopt a new cloud service.
