How It Works

 

MIMIX Process

MIMIX Availability transparently replicates data and all essential application objects in real time from a production server to a recovery server anywhere in the world. Hardware independent technology supports replication between different IBM i versions and storage types and scales to handle the transaction volumes of businesses of all sizes.

Leveraging IBM i’s remote journaling features, along with other change capture mechanisms, MIMIX Availability ensures that your recovery server is always a complete replica of your production server. Advanced continuous auditing processes seek out discrepancies in the replicated data and correct any errors. Your recovery system is always ready and available to assume responsibility for production operations at a moment’s notice.

MIMIX’s browser-based graphical interface facilitates easy configuration, management and monitoring. Unexpected issues are reported in MIMIX’s at-a-glance status display, as well as through email or SNMP alerts.

Built-in automated procedures make it easy to switch operations to the recovery server, and later switch back to the production server, eliminating downtime due to both unplanned outages and planned server maintenance. An automated virtual switch procedure allows your HA/DR plan to be tested on a routine basis, without impacting production server operations.
