‘Flash for i’, ‘Control for i’ and ‘Recover for i’ give you extra time:
- to do daily backups
=> is it possible to perform daily backups with nearly no production interruption?
Yes! Just around 1 minute is needed… then your users can again access to their application !!!
- to perform Save21
=> Save21 is a System backup needing to be in restricted mode to be made! No users at all during many hours 🙂
Still 1 minute needed with our solution!
- to refresh test environments
=> your Dev team wants to refresh frequently their Test/Acceptance/Preprod environments… but you cannot so easily !
Again: just 1 minute to clone your Prod Database and Applications and then just the IPL time => your UAT partition is on line with all the system and app values needed !
- to recover from data-loss, data-corruption or crypto-virus
=> a bug spoils all your database, an absent minded deletes tables, a hacker or malware destroys your data or corrupt your IFS :-(((
Could you imagine to restart less than 1 hour after the corruption with one healthy full disks copy ? (one of your 12 or 24 daily recovery copies…) .
Or could you imagine to restart with a Data loss of only 5 minutes ?
- to make HA roll-swap exercises
=> HA roll-swap exercises are heavy to perform and very often postponed :-((
What about doing an exercise when you want on a ‘clone’ of your real HA partition !
- to react after an incident
=> How often do you discover an IBM i system or application incident too late? Or a bad check ? Or an alert sent to an absent person or …
Discover a high speed and proactive monitoring solution, WITHOUT ANY development, integrated in your existing solution (Nagios, PRTG, SolarWinds, etc, …) and able to automate responses to alert messages …
