13DC HA for IBM i - What Could Possibly Go Wrong??

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

You have all seen the sales pitches about High Availability and Disaster Recovery for the IBM i. Each vendor tries to explain why their solution is better than the others, and how easy it is to install and maintain. At no fault on their own, they all have things in common though that will make your backup system FAIL when you need it most. This session is going to talk about the pitfalls when implementing HA and how to deal with them. I will discuss many of the challenges you will encounter when running an HA solution on a daily, weekly, monthly, and annual basis. I will also cover some of the negatives of Hardware replication (IBM PowerHA) and Software replication (logical). When failure is not an option this session will prepare for the best failover.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Impact on IT Staff running an HA solution, i.e. two systems
  2. What to look for in a solution to lessen the impact on IT
  3. Why your network admin/team is a critical part of the HA plan
  4. Why your first (and second, and third,..) Failover will most likely fail
  5. Should you transfer the responsibility of HA to a cloud provider?
