Cloud based Disaster Recovery for IBM i

As one of the UK’s leading experts in the provision of Disaster Recovery (DR) solutions for IBM i series, Life IT likes to ensure that we remain at the forefront of technological developments and industry trends.

Looking ahead to the trends for 2016 with our DR partner Maxava, Allan Campbell (CEO at Maxava) says: “We see a large shift in DR strategy occurring in the SMB areas as IBM i customers look to upgrade from tape to save time and to avoid having to re-key lost data in a disaster scenario. The challenges of avoiding further CapEx investment plus the growing maturity of cloud services probably explains why we see a major increase in DRaaS, which we predict will easily eclipse traditional license sales for new DR customers this year.”

“Cloud is going mainstream for the IBM i with customers mixing and matching in-house and cloud based services as their needs dictate. ‘No-down-time-migrations’ are becoming the norm as customers use their real time replication solutions to run parallel production environments for upgrades.”

Developed using Maxava software, Life’s DraaS solutions for System i, offers secure, reliable & cost effective protection for critical business information on System i. For more information or to discuss your specific Cloud based DR requirements please contact us on 01625 548111.
