By configuring a highly available system, you can be prepared to handle both hardware and software failures. Service is quickly restored when a system, a component, or an application fails. A highly available system gives your organization the assurance of minimal downtime and creates the opportunity for savings when the cost of downtime is high.
You can now learn about how to configure your system for high availability in the IBM® Maximo® Asset Management Version 7.5 information center. The Implementing highly available systems section contains useful planning information and examples of common topologies, such as warm standby and load balanced configurations (pic.dhe.ibm.com/infocenter/tivihelp/v49r1/topic/com.ibm.mbs.doc/gp_highavail/c_ctr_high_availability.html).
