Maxava, a global leader in IBM i high availability (HA) and disaster recovery (DR) software for both Traditional and Cloud markets, is staking its claim to being the Number One provider of IBM i Disaster Recovery and High Availability software in the Cloud.
For more than half a decade, hundreds of private and public Cloud customers have been relying on Maxava HA to protect their business using a Cloud environment. Over that time Maxava has worked closely with its Managed Services Provider (MSP) and Independent Software Vendor (ISV) partners to fine tune its software for maximum performance in multi-enterprise environments. The culmination of this is the latest Maxava HA product, Enterprise+ which is optimized to meet the needs of the largest and most complex multi tenanted scenarios and specifically those required for both fully-hosted and semi-hosted Disaster Recovery Cloud offerings.
Maxava provides a range of IBM i HA/DR solutions allowing Managed Services Providers (MSP’s) to efficiently and cost effectively deliver superior Cloud based disaster recovery for IBM i around the globe.
Maxava believes its software replication model provides the best solution for hosted DR in the IBM i environment and cites low bandwidth, industry leading speed, performance, replication integrity, ease of use, proven pricing and partnering models and experience, as key advantages it has over competitive offerings. Technical features of the Maxava solution also avoid the need for independent ASP’s, allow use of the back-up database for reporting purposes and accommodate multiple customer hosting on a single machine or even single LPAR.
“Our persistent development focus on building for extreme performance and ease of use, which are both critical for successful Cloud offerings, provided Maxava HA with the ideal architectural foundation for our Cloud solutions,” says Allan Campbell, CEO of Maxava. “Add to that many years of real experience working with partners to deliver what is now called Cloud services, puts Maxava at the forefront of the IBM i HA/DR Cloud market,” he added.
The Maxava HA Suite is well suited to the rigorous demands and performance requirements of Cloud providers looking to maximize customer/machine ratios, with the platform having been originally developed to ensure it could support the unique ‘big data’ needs of large Telcos and their complex data protection requirements.
Maxava provides MSPs an array of options to monitor replication status via a variety of monitoring and management tools including green screen, pc widget, GUI and maxView Mobile. Maxava HA also delivers an option allowing end customers to monitor the status of their cloud based DR environment.
With hundreds of customers already enjoying the benefits of Maxava HA in the Cloud, the company is continuing to ramp up its relationships with Managed Services Providers (MSP’s) and Independent Software Vendors (ISV’s). “We’ve really noticed a dramatic uptick in interest over the past six months amongst Cloud providers looking for proven solutions from a company that understands the Cloud business model and economics and has the ability to be flexible in its approach” said Simon O’Sullivan, Executive VP of Maxava with special responsibilities for Cloud, MSP and ISV business development.
