    Pattern Overview


    MIMIX DR is a complete, affordable disaster recovery solution for Power Systems running IBM i. Real-time replication to a backup server residing on-premises, off-site or in the cloud ensures that mission critical data and applications are protected up to the point of failure and are fully recoverable. Leveraging the world-class technology found in MIMIX Availability, MIMIX DR delivers:

    • Comprehensive, real-time replication including files, data areas, data queues, IFS, programs, user profiles, device configurations, spool files, triggers, constraints and more

    • Easy monitoring, configuration and control with the browser-based Vision Solutions Portal interface

    • Robust auditing of replicated data for confident failover and recovery

    MIMIX DR enables businesses to meet a wide range of regulatory mandates and service level agreements related to data loss. When delivered in a managed services or cloud hosted model, MIMIX DR is an ideal solution for small businesses that desire real-time disaster recovery protection without the capital investment in a second system.

    Business Case

    The ability to ensure business continuity by providing disaster recovery protection for critical applications and data is a requirement for success in today’s business world. Organizations are not only faced with the costs and consequences of data loss and downtime from unexpected server and site failures, but also the associated cost of damaged relationships with customers and supply chain partners, as well as the impact of failing to meet regulatory mandates related to data loss and downtime.

    MIMIX DR solves these issues by providing a comprehensive, affordable, entry-level disaster recovery solution that ensures that data and applications are protected up to the point of failure and are fully recoverable. MIMIX DR solves the challenges facing businesses by protecting data from loss and reducing the impact of downtime. It helps satisfy regulatory data protection mandates such as Sarbanes-Oxley, Basel II and HIPAA, and it helps to meet obligations to customers and partners as part of an integrated supply chain or SLA.

    Whether it’s protecting medical records for a healthcare organization, orders for a manufacturing company, or transaction records for a financial services business, MIMIX DR protects data and applications from loss and makes sure they are fully recoverable, thus helping businesses to achieve their goals.

    Business Problem

    It has been estimated that 25-40% of small businesses do not reopen after a disaster or long-term outage. They are subject to the same regulatory mandates as enterprises, and their customers, partners and staff require 24 x 7 system access. Yet most have not fully protected their business from data loss and downtime. MIMIX DR protects applications and data in real time so that they are recoverable to the point of failure.
