SafeData White Paper Discusses iSeries Rapid Recovery
March 23, 2009 Timothy Prickett Morgan
iSeries data protection specialist SafeData wants to help you get your data protected better, and for that reason it has put together a white paper that is aimed as much at the owner or manager of your company as it is aimed at the IT department.
The white paper, which has the unwieldy title Best Bets for iSeries Rapid Recovery with Virtualization: An Executive’s Guide to Affordable IBM iSeries Recovery in 12 Hours or Less, lays out the different levels of availability that are available using its SafeData/HA (recovery in 15 minutes or less) or SafeData/DR (10 hours or less) for the OS/400, i5/OS, and i applications. Rather than try to set up HA or DR software, SafeData wants you to outsource the problem to its company, which has the expertise to make it all happen.
“Protecting your data and applications hosted on your iSeries platform does not have to be expensive or a drain on your IT resources,” explained Peter Briggs, president of SafeData, in a statement announcing the white paper. “By outsourcing your virtualized recovery services to experts you will have an affordable backup and recovery solution that will keep your data safe, meet your aggressive recovery time objectives and will alleviate headaches for your IT team. In today’s market, you can’t afford downtime. Having a solution that enables your systems to be available in 12 hours or less will help you maintain your competitive edge.”
