The Pulse 2012 workshops including VMware images (IBMers only) are available:
F05 DB2 High Availability and Disaster Recovery
In this lab exercise, you learn how the IBM DB2 High Availability and Disaster Recovery feature works with automatic failover using IBM Tivoli System Automation for Multiplatforms to make DB2 highly available.
Three virtualized Linux hosts are preinstalled with the appropriate software packages (DB2 production installation without instance, db2_install).
However, no other configuration has been applied to give you a realistic setup experience from start to finish.
F06 SAP High Availability
In this lab exercise, you learn how to make SAP highly available. You use the updated SAP wizard of Tivoli System Automation for Multiplatforms 3.2.2 to define automation in your own cluster. You learn to start and stop an entire SAP cluster with a single click. You perform a critical outage scenario of the SAP central instance and watch Tivoli System Automation for Multiplatforms recovering your SAP application.
Note: IBMers can download the VMs for this workshop at SPLL

Tivoli System Automation Application Manager 3.2.2 has released its first pre-canned End-to-end policy. This policy is called "End-to-end Disaster Recovery with DB2 HADR" and is available on the ISM Connect library:
It is a disaster recovery (DR) solution with System Automation Application Manager as single point of control for operating and disaster recovery actions. Application data is replicated software-based with IBM DB2 high availability disaster recovery (HADR) across data centers. Because this generic solution is policy-based, it can be customized to your application landscape.
You should check this out if you are looking for a DR solution for your application that stores its data in a DB2 data store. You can even combine this solution with a high availability clustering in one site or extend a System Automation for Multiplatforms high availablity setup with this DR capabilities.
