PowerHA SystemMirror for AIX Standard Edition

IBM PowerHA for AIX Standard Edition features cluster-aware AIX, which provides a strategic foundation for Power Systems software. It enables kernel level messaging, event management and monitoring in coordination with AIX. PowerHA monitors soft and hard errors within the cluster from various event sources including problems that are severe enough to immobilize the system. With monitoring and event management functions, scheduling or other OS related issues can be prevented.

PowerHA SystemMirror for AIX Enterprise Edition

PowerHA V7 Enterprise Edition enables you to extend your traditional data center cluster to incorporate a remote location environment for disaster recovery. The V7 cluster makes disaster recovery testing relatively simple while putting the operator in charge of managing failover policy and procedures.

PowerHA pureScale

PowerHA pureScale and DB2 pureScale on Power Systems provide unlimited capacity, continuous availability and application transparency. It is designed to meet the most demanding transaction processing needs, both now and in the future. Breakthrough levels of availability are ensured thanks to uninterrupted processing during node failures and a redundant architecture. Adding capacity is painless because DB2 pureScale does not require application changes or database tuning.
