It is not uncommon for a system failure to occur, and system failure is a business nightmare and can prove to be exceptionally costly. With IMS you can rest assured that in case of a disaster, your business is in safe hands.
To ensure you are getting the best possible expertise in ensuring High Availability to your system IMS work with Blue Chip. Blue Chip are recognised market leaders in IBM System i hosting, support and managed services. Working together, we are now able to fully support your System 21 (Infor software and Aurora) and IBM Power8 servers (iSeries).
High Availability includes the replication of your system data onto a second machine. This can be based at one of your sites, or situated in Blue Chips highly secure datacentre. The data can either be on a dedicated system or placed in Blue Chip’s shared environment. In either case data is fully managed by IMS, eliminating the need for expensive training or specialist resources.
High Availability is an ideal solution for customers with limited RPO (recovery point objective) or RTO (recovery time objective) as it provides minimal downtime.
High Availability solutions will typically include access to additional system resource for role swaps and invocations with two role swaps per year recommended.
