I would like to announce the opening of the next IBM PowerHA residency to continue architecting, exploring, and developing content on high availability and challenging business continuity requirement scenarios. The goal for this residency is to continue to develop technical content to:
1. Convince you, if you have not adopted PowerHA yet, to consider it for your next IBM Power System and applications high availability requirements.
2. Help you understand, use, deploy and manage your PowerHA environments, convince you to think about upgrading your PowerHA version to take advantages of the latest features.
3. Provide you with the most comprehensive technical documentation, complementing the IBM PowerHA manuals to help you keep your environment highly available.
The residency announcement including time table, requirements, and nomination form can be found at the following website:
Note: Your feedback is welcome. Thus I am collecting feedback for the residency team on high availability topics that lack documentation taking into account the current line up of IBM PowerHA Redbooks and Redpapers available at the IBM Redbooks website: http://www.redbooks.ibm.com/
