PowerHA SystemMirror and VM Recovery Manager – the strategic solution for high availability and disaster recovery software – make downtime a thing of the past.
Aricent is proud to announce the latest enterprise software release in our partnership with IBM’s High Availability (HA) and Disaster Recovery (DR) solutions. VM Recovery Manager HA provides even more business resiliency for Power Systems. Another IBM offering, Geographic Dispersed Recovery for Power Systems™, will be renamed as VM Recovery Manager DR and combined by Aricent with the HA edition. VM Recovery Manager supports the AIX, Linux and IBM i operating systems.
These releases expand the HA/DR portfolio for IBM Power Systems previously established with the PowerHA SystemMirror clustering solution for AIX and Linux. With the current 7.2.2 version, Aricent has added significant capabilities to provide greater automation and higher levels of resilience, resulting in increased value for customers. Not only does the latest version cut cost of ownership by integrating IBM Power® Enterprise Pools and elastic capacity on demand (CoD), but with greater degrees of automation, operational costs are lowered by minimizing dependence on IT operational procedures with advanced capabilities such as non-disruptive upgrades.
“The challenges are around keeping things smooth, keeping things running, keeping everybody using your products, while having business contingency plans built for people, not just the technologies.”
– Steve Finnes Worldwide Manager for Power Systems, HA/DR Solutions
