On February 19th, a panel of IBM experts answered questions on WebSphere MQ high availability and disaster recovery, including requirements, clustering, platform technologies (for example, High Availability Cluster Multiprocessing, Geographically Dispersed Parallel Sysplex), and failover testing. This chat was a spinoff from last month's (January 2009) popular chat on MQ best practices. To learn more about WebSphere MQ, see the developerWorks WebSphere MQ zone.
This online chat is for developers and administrators who are interested in WebSphere MQ.
