Whether you run your business critical systems on Intel, Linux, AIX or IBM iOS – the myriad of HA and replication solutions available can be daunting. Do you choose Vision’s MIMIX for POWERi HA, or Rocket’s iCluster? POWER HA is most organisations ‘go to’ for AIX, but could you replicate data at a disk level with IBM or EMC and still meet your business objectives?
And the challenges are not necessarily limited to just replicating the data. Getting performance over distance, or with a modest link, can be a head-ache, which is where SteelHead can prove critical. Sometimes the data is just too sensitive to replicate to a unsecured remote office, but you need that remote office to operate if a comms link fails, which is perfect for SteelFusion – ‘No Servers, No Storage, No backup’, enabling you to rethink branch IT.
