Business resiliency has been on the minds of leaders of businesses from small to enterprise. Be it driven by regulatory compliance requirements, by the organization’s board, or at times by the need to deliver on more stringent service level agreements during planned and unplanned downtime in a globalized business environment, business resiliency and associated risk management strategies for mission-critical IBM AIX systems have become a mandate for IT departments in recent years. This evolving requirement led to the need for solutions beyond traditional tape-based backup and disaster recovery, for ones that can deliver measurable financial impact and value to the business.
Join the presenter for a discussion on business resiliency and disaster recovery best practices on the AIX platform. The presenter will provide an overview of the business drivers and factors to be considered on the road of business resiliency, followed by a survey of high availability, disaster recovery and virtualization solutions currently available on the market for AIX, as they relate to business resiliency.
By the end of this session, attendees will be able to:
Risk management and disaster recovery concepts as they relate to the AIX platform
Describe the categories of various HA and DR options available for AIX and the technology behind each
Describe the solutions’ features and benefits, as well as tradeoffs
IT managers, system administrators, database administrators, solution architects who wish to gain or improve their familiarity with business resiliency solutions for AIX.
