Assure MIMIX HA for AIX®

Assure MIMIX HA for AIX® is the industry’s most straightforward HA/DR solution for IBM Power Systems running AIX.

Easy, automated high availability with point-in-time recovery

Full-featured, with automated failover and continuous data protection (CDP) for point-in-time recovery, Assure MIMIX HA for AIX provides true high availability for physical, virtual and cloud AIX environments.

Assure MIMIX HA for AIX: How it works

Assure MIMIX HA for AIX provides high availability and disaster recovery for AIX applications and data using powerful replication technology, cluster health monitoring, and true continuous data protection (CDP). It provides continuous, 24-hour surveillance of your cluster topology via LAN and WAN heartbeat monitoring technology, and of storage and application resources via resource-specific monitoring methods.

When Assure its heartbeat monitoring detects a failure, it moves applications from the failed server to the recovery server, keeping services available. You can configure the solution to perform all failover activities—including release of storage resources, IP address switching, reestablishing replication, file system mounts, and application switching—automatically or in a prompted but automated fashion.

Its easy-to-use, browser-based graphical interface minimizes the time and resources required to manage the solution. Email notifications, SNMP notifications, and customizable user exit methods afford high levels of lights-out operations, helping you to meet SLAs no matter the time of day a failure is detected.

Integration of Assure MIMIX HA for AIX with your applications, along with the service IP and storage resources those applications depend upon, ensures that all components of a business service, including storage, network, database, and application resources, are made available on a recovery server for your staff, customers, and partners in the event of any planned or unplanned outage.
