MIMIX Move is a cost-effective solution that virtually eliminates the downtime associated with system upgrades and migrations. MIMIX Move rapidly copies data to your new IBM i server and keeps it synced with your production system. Users and processors are online minutes after validation.
It's always a race against the clock when performing server migrations, desperately trying to minimize the hours or days that critical business applications must be offline. Rushing through the process only makes it much more error-prone and can lead to costly and disruptive mistakes. MIMIX Move allows you to employ a more cautious approach, while virtually eliminating application downtime.
Simply install the new server, and then let MIMIX Move synchronize your new system with the old one. Then, you take your time to validate the new system while users work normally on the old one. While you’re doing expert and careful validation, MIMIX Move keeps the new system current by migrating changes from the old system as they happen. Finally, when you’re ready to flip the switch, operations will pick up on the new system exactly where they left off on the old one.
MIMIX Move mirrors data, user profiles, authorities, data areas, data queues, IFS files, programs, spool files and all other objects needed for a successful Power Systems upgrade or migration and leaves absolutely nothing behind. Migrations can be trying and complex. Fortunately, with MIMIX Move you’re not in it alone. From start to finish, Vision personnel work closely with you to install and configure the software, enable and monitor synchronization, and perform the final switch.
If you are considering a major system or application migration on your IBM Power System ®, MIMIX Move offers the following important business benefits:
• Perform essential system upgrades and migrations while continuing normal processing.
• Perform upgrade and migration work during the normal work week rather than scheduling it for a long weekend.
• Eliminate the enormous downtime traditionally associated with system upgrades and migrations.
• Increase the accuracy of a migration by allowing you to test and re-test the newly migrated environment before rolling into production.
• Dramatically reduce costs of your migration/upgrade by reducing migration and upgrade downtime from days to minutes.
Downtime resulting from planned and unplanned system maintenance is disruptive to any user or process that requires machine access. With availability requirements that extend around-the-clock, opportunities to perform maintenance tasks are few and far between. With MIMIX Move, migrations don't necessarily have to be scheduled on weekends, holidays or during early morning hours. They can be performed during regular work hours.
MIMIX Move uses Vision’s advanced high availability technologies to rapidly copy business-critical data to your new Power Systems server and keep it synchronized with your production system in real-time. To ensure that you’ll have a ready-to-run server, MIMIX Move mirrors all of the data and objects needed for a successful upgrade or migration.
