Application System/400 (also known as AS/400), now System i (also known as iSeries), is a type of minicomputer produced by IBM. It was first produced in 1988. It was then renamed to the eServer iSeries in 2000 as part of IBM's e-Server branding initiative. Now with the global move of the server and storage brands to the System brand with the Systems Agenda, the family has been renamed to System i in 2006.
The Nimsoft for Server Monitoring solution supports iSeries AS400, Netware, Linux, Windows, and UNIX from a single, easy-to-use console. The solution monitors core server resources (CPU, memory, disk, event logs, counters, etc.) and enables centralized management of remote processes and services (automated and manual start/restart/stop).
The role of servers in your organization has changed substantially-with their uses, requirements, and complexity all increasing dramatically in recent years. Many of the traditional tools and techniques that worked in the past don't suffice any more. Consequently, server monitoring presents several critical battles in today's demanding environments.
Achieving effective and efficient high availability protection for larger IBM i environments requires careful thought and clear understanding of the technology options. This white paper describes what you need to know in order to make an informed decision about IBM i high availability strategies so that your business requirements for Recovery Time Objective (RTO) and Recovery Point Objective (RPO) are not compromised
The newest edition of this unique report is filled with survey findings from over 4,000 individuals responsible for the resilience and protection of AIX and IBM i (i5/OS) environments. Discover if and how your peers are meeting recovery-time and recovery-point objectives, disaster recovery plans and more.
Journaling? RAID? Vaulting? Mirroring? High availability? Know your data protection and recovery options! Download this information-packed 29-page report that reviews the spectrum of IBM i (i5/OS) and AIX resilience and recovery technologies and best practices choices, including the latest, next-generation solutions.
For IT departments looking to bring their AIX environments up to the next step in data protection, IBM’s PowerHA (HACMP) connects multiple servers to shared storage via clustering. This offers automatic recovery of applications and system resources if a failure occurs with the primary server.
This white paper shows how information availability solutions ensure the availability and accessibility of data and applications, regardless of planned or unplanned interruptions. They transform costly unproductive downtime into value producing uptime and help IT managers solve the challenges of automated patient care and compliance.
This white paper explores how the power of an information availability solution can unlock the latent potential of your IT environment and deliver new value for your organization. It includes an Action Worksheet to use in discussions with your IT executives.
Journaling is a powerful feature, one that IBM has continued to develop and improve over the years. Yet, depending upon your business requirements, you probably still need more protection against downtime than journaling alone can provide. This white paper will cover what you need to know about journaling, what it can do and how it supports and cooperates with high availability software.
This white paper provides a road map to the most effective strategies and technologies to protect data in AIX environments and provide fast recovery should data be lost or corrupted due to accident or malicious action. The paper also outlines the benefits of continuous data protection (CDP) technologies for AIX.
If you need more than tape backup to protect your critical applications running on AIX operating environments, download this white paper and learn your options and strategies, including how new technologies have significantly improved the recovery time and data recovery points for AIX.
Until recently, System i high availability solutions were reserved mostly for large enterprises. Now that high availability is dramatically easier to use and less expensive to own and manage, the picture has changed.
Continuous member service is an important deliverable for credit unions, and. the continued growth in assets and members means that the impact of downtime is affecting a larger base and is therefore potentially much more costly. Learn how new data protection and recovery technologies are making a huge impact on downtime for credit unions that depend on AIX-hosted applications.
For AIX IT departments looking to take the next step in data protection strategies, CDP is an essential consideration. Analysts agree that businesses will be incorporating this strategy in the next few years as part of an integrated solution. CDP enables you to reverse data corruption in a fraction of the time and labor required for recovery from tape.
This white paper provides a basic understanding of the building blocks of IT and business continuity—from understanding the concepts of disaster recovery and information availability to calculating the business impact of downtime and selecting the right software solution.
Downtime and data loss pose intolerable risks to every business today. From IT departments to the Board Room, managers have seen the importance of business uptime and data protection to continued success, productivity and profitability.
This paper presents an overview of iSeries high availability to companies that are beginning to explore this powerful business continuity technology. The critical components of high availability solutions are detailed in this paper, including data replication engines, system monitors, role swap capabilities, and the importance of autonomic processes.
This paper explores what cross-channel transparency looks like through the consumer's eyes, the costs retailers incur by maintaining the status quo, and key steps retailers need to consider as they undertake cross-channel initiatives.
SOA is a set of architectural and design principles that are probably new to most iSeries people. SOA considers an enterprise as consisting of many processes and services. SOA comes with the expected set of acronyms and jargon, such as "loose coupling" and "granularity" and is typically implemented with Web Services.
