Adventist Health - Migrate While Active

Adventist Health licensed Migrate While Active to reduce downtime 

The computing load placed on an aging IBM AS/400 model 730 caused response times to swell, so a powerful new IBM System i model 570 was acquired to take its place.

All of the healthcare facilities supported by this system operate on a 24/7 basis, with Adventist employees accessing and updating patient charts continuously. A conventional migration from the AS/400 to the new System i model 570 was going to result in an unacceptable amount of downtime— potentially more than 20 hours.

To reduce the amount of downtime incurred during the migration process, and lessen exposure to unexpected startup problems, Adventist Health licensed Upgrade/Migrate While Active, offered by award-winning System i software vendor, Precisely.
