Business continuity is one of those areas that customers consider not to be a necessity or priority until disaster strikes. Just imagine and picture your business out of service for a few hours due to unforeseen causes. Even a short lapse on services can destroy the business reputation completely. Although with many businesses gone today due to absence of business continuity plans, there are many businesses still gambling their subsistence without a business continuity plan.
IBM Power Systems customers are not exempt from business continuity challenges. However, there are options that can help with these business continuity (high availability and disaster recovery) requirements. Power Systems customers can benefit from solutions such as PowerHA SystemMirror for AIX and Linux, IBM Geographically Dispersed Resilience, IBM Flash Storage solutions, IBM Storage solutions, and others.
