Boost system recovery

In order to enhance your customer’s digital experience, an automated, low-touch recovery solution can be utilized to help boost system recovery. You can restore service seamlessly and efficiently to deliver a customer experience unimpaired by disruptions, while additional processing capacity gives you a temporary boost after an outage so that you can meet the most demanding service levels.

New system recovery technologies

IBM Z Instant Recovery

Return to your pre-shutdown SLAs in up to 50 percent less time, process your transactional backlog by up to 2 times faster, and process your batch backlog by up to 2.5 times faster – with no increase in IBM software licensing costs or MSU consumption. IBM Instant Recovery technologies, exclusively available on IBM z15™, include the following:

  • Speed Boost enables general-purpose processors on sub-capacity machines to run at full-capacity speed in the boosted image(s).
  • zIIP Boost provides capacity and parallelism by enabling general-purpose workloads to run on zIIP processors that are available to the boosted image(s).
  • GDPS® enhancements increase the speed at which GDPS drives hardware actions, such as reconfiguration and orchestration.
  • Recovery process boost minimizes disruption and maximizes sysplex resiliency when applied to a range of sysplex recovery processes.

*99.99999% disclaimer: Internal data based on measurements and projections was used in calculating the expected value. The z15 servers must be configured in a parallel sysplex using z/OS 2.3 or above; GDPS management of data and middleware recovery across Metro distance systems and storage, including GDPS Metro Multi-site Workload and GDPS Continuous Availability; and DS888X with IBM HyperSwap. Necessary resiliency technology must be enabled, such as System Managed CF Structure Duplexing, Sysplex failure management and Capacity Provisioning Manager. Other configurations may provide different availability characteristics.
