When talking about IT infrastructure nowadays, you will have to think about high availability as well. Especially when you work in a sector where data security and integrity is of very high importance such as banking and insurance. Law restrictions and competitive pressures force every business to think about how to keep their data safe. Therefore, high availability is not just a trendy word, but essential to you and your clients. Think about it, high availability not only keeps your things running, it also can help to prevent you from spending huge amounts of time and money on disaster recovery.
As you can see, with the IBM MQ Appliance a new, high availability configuration is now possible with a pair of appliances that mirror messages and enable seamless takeover upon failure of an identified primary appliance. This solution includes failure detection for hardware and software problems. In addition, it supports manual failover for rolling upgrades and it is easier to set up than other high availability solutions due to the fact that among others shared file systems and discs are no longer needed. To ensure 100% fidelity, replication is synchronous over ethernet.
