MIMIX Plays the Backcourt at Wimbledon
July 10, 2007 Alex Woodie
While the outcome of the Wimbledon men’s final Sunday at The All England Lawn Tennis Club was undecided, there was one thing that was nearly a certainty: the availability of the AELTC’s i5/OS-based business information system, which was protected by the MIMIX high availability suite from Vision Solutions.
Vision says the AELTC implemented MIMIX to ensure the availability of its critical computer systems, including its ticket management system, ballot scanning, debentures, and System 21 financials, in the event of an emergency. The club replicated data between two System i Model 520s.
This isn’t the first time that the AELTC has used MIMIX, according to Vision, which acquired MIMIX’s original developer, Lakeview Technology, less than a month ago. REAL Solutions, an IBM business partner based in England, has worked with the AELTC since at least 2004, according to a case study on its Web site.
Despite losing a set early to Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer won his fifth straight Wimbledon title, matching a record set by Bjorn Borg.
