Disaster Recovery for IBM AIX

Disaster recovery protection for critical AIX applications and data

MIMIX® DR for AIX replicates your critical data and applications in real time to a recovery server and leverages built-in Continuous Data Protection (CDP) to allow you to recover from a system failure, rollback your server to a previous point in time, or restore lost or corrupted data. Near-instantaneous recovery, with push-button simplicity, allows you to meet a wide range of recovery point and recovery time objectives in physical, virtual, and cloud environments.

Real-time replication

MIMIX DR for AIX’s replication technology provides superior performance for a high level of scalability and support for aggressive Recovery Time Objectives.

  • Continuously replicates changed data in real time to a local or remote recovery server
  • Ensures data integrity by maintaining write order consistency of replicated data
  • Optionally compresses data before transmission to minimize bandwidth usage
  • Provides the option to encrypt replicated data
  • Provides the ability to compress or encrypt replicated data
  • Intelligently and efficiently re-synchronizes production and recovery servers in the event of lost connectivity
  • Replicates between any combination of hardware, storage, or OS version on physical, virtual, or cloud servers
  • Supports 1-to-1, many-to-1, or 2-node broadcast replication configurations
  • Allows the recovery system to be leveraged for tape backup, reporting, testing and more

Achieving Rapid Data Recovery for IBM AIX® Environments

Businesses of all sizes must plan for recovery. The core challenges when implementing an HA/DR plan include fully protecting against data loss and application downtime, and doing so in a way that ensures you can meet Recovery Point and Recovery Time Objectives (SLAs). Your plan must cover a wide range of risks: inadvertently deleted files or records; viruses or hackers that cause data corruption or deletion; and natural disasters that put much more than just your data and applications at risk. So, the question is, do you have a plan that meets your recovery requirements to your satisfaction across these areas?
