IBM GDPS is family of disaster recovery and resiliency software for zSystems. It manages the storage subsystem and remote copy configuration across heterogeneous platforms, automates IBM Parallel Sysplex operational tasks and performs failure recovery from a single point of control.
To ensure IT resiliency, you need to rapidly recover from any outages with no or minimal impact. To help achieve this, IBM brings you GDPS® – a collection of offerings that uses clustering, server management, storage replication and automation to minimize downtime of the IBM zSystems® platform.
Maintain availability of your applications by masking disk outages caused by disk maintenance or failures.
Enable zero or minimal data loss in the event of a disaster with continuous 24x7 data replication.
During an outage, seamlessly move production to an alternative site with minimal human intervention.
Automatically identify and recover your business in the event of a data breach or cyberattack.
Situate your data centers anywhere in world to avoid reliance on a single location.
Easily demonstrate regulatory compliance by moving production between data centers.
Use synchronous replication, asynchronous replication or a combination of both to address your business needs.
Remove error-prone manual processes by automating operational tasks with simple, yet powerful, orchestration.
Monitor your mainframe resiliency posture in real-time from a single point of control to detect any deviations.
Create secured, tamper-proof backups stored in a security-rich, isolated environment to enable automated recovery from cyberattacks or data breaches.
Support for multiple, geographically dispersed, active data centers in an ‘active-active’ configuration with workload balancing between sites.
Support for full IBM zSystems platform, including z/OS®, Linux® on Z, z/VM®, KVM and guest virtual machines.
Provides automation, synchronous replication (Metro Mirror), HyperSwap and is tightly integrated with Parallel Sysplex.
Orchestrates the recovery of systems that are using asynchronous replication (Global Mirror).
Combines the local near-continuous availability of GDPS Metro with the unlimited distance recovery options provided by GDPS Global.
Near real-time replication to update data to a second instance of a workload and to manage the distribution of work across both.
Enables secure point-in-time copies of the critical source data and helps restore corrupted or deleted data.
This automated and highly customized application availability solution helps to manage the storage subsystem(s) and remote copy configuration; automate Parallel Sysplex® operational tasks and perform failure recovery from a single point of control.
IBM specialists help you plan, configure, customize, test and train for the GDPS solutions.
