Avnet, Lakeview Partner on iSeries High Availability
January 30, 2006 Timothy Prickett Morgan
High availability software maker Lakeview Technology and Avnet Partner Solutions, the master server distributor arm of electronics supplier Avnet, have teamed up to help their respective partners sell Lakeview’s MIMIX high availability and disaster recovery solutions on various IBM platforms.
Under the partnership, Lakeview and Avnet will partner to push the MIMIX high availability software on all of the operating systems that either run on the iSeries platform itself–i5/OS, AIX, and Linux–or on the Integrated xSeries Server and Integrated xSeries Adapter co-processors–which run Windows. Avnet and its downstream partners will be able to peddle MIMIX dr1 for i5/OS; MIMIX ha1 for Linux, Unix, and Windows; and the new MIMIX Vault, which is a high availability and disaster recovery service recently announced by Lakeview. This latter item will be resold by Avnet as APS Vault, and downstream resellers will be able to peddle the services under their own brands if they so choose. Avnet will be providing the backend data center that the managed services provided to customers plug back into.
