IBM Worldwide Server Manufacturing is operating on 19 IBM Power Systems running IBM i, supporting manufacturing facilities in China, Ireland, Hungary and the US. This 24 x 7 environment replicates production data between 10 systems and used a business partner's product called MIMIX for ten years. This environment has recently been enhanced to use external storage and Metro Mirror technology to replicate most of the data. Some of the data which cannot be replicated by Metro Mirror is being replicated by another IBM product called iCluster. This presentation will share our success story.
