Vision Solutions, a leading high availability (HA) solution provider for IBM systems, has announced release 3.0 of MIMIX for AIX. The new release has completed beta testing and is in the process of being installed at selected customer sites. This upgrade includes innovative performance and automation enhancements increasing ease of use and product flexibility while reducing total cost of ownership.

"MIMIX for AIX adds tremendous enhancements to deliver nonstop, automated protection that keeps applications and servers working hard for businesses," says Vision Solutions Chief Technology Officer and Executive Vice President Alan Arnold. "This latest release represents several MIMIX high availability innovations that provide maximum protection against data loss while integrating easily into AIX environments."

Key new features of MIMIX for AIX 3.0 include:

  • Failover Enhancements provide enhanced Disaster Recovery capabilities for supporting failover between systems geographically distant from one another.
  • New GUI interface providing better integration between replication and clustering/failover components.
  • Enhanced notifications and logging that makes troubleshooting and management much easier.

"We're using MIMIX for AIX to protect our critical food tracking system and are very pleased with how easy it was to install and maintain on a daily basis," says Mike Burruss, the system administrator for Georgia-based Tip Top Poultry. "With the 3.0 release, we plan to enhance our environment by taking advantage of the impressive remote failover abilities."

Targeted at IBM System p and AIX environments running on System i, MIMIX for AIX replicates the production environment to a backup server in real time eliminating data loss (should planned or unplanned downtime occur in the production environment). Continuous self-monitoring, automated failover, and continuous data protection (CDP) ensures that business-critical AIX applications are protected and available.

"MIMIX for AIX includes a true continuous data protection solution that delivers nearly instantaneous recovery of data and applications at the push of a buttonùenabling easy recovery of data from any point-in-time," says Bill Hammond, director of product marketing. "MIMIX CDP is the definitive solution for recovery from data corruption issues because it provides the widest range of available recovery points."

Other critical features of MIMIX for AIX:

  • Constant monitoring and automatic failover delivers 24/7 availability without the time or expense of manual IT labor.
  • Ensures business continuity by automatically performing all aspects of failover in only seconds.
  • Individual applications can be separately failed over without disturbing other applications for faster, more efficient recovery.
  • Smart network connection management automatically re-routes during communication failures to avoid unnecessary failovers.
  • Cluster "heartbeat" server-status communications are conducted via a dedicated Ethernet connection for assured, continuous communications.
  • Fast, point-and-click switching enables you to easily move users to a backup server while you perform maintenance on the primary server.

Easy-to-install, manage, and requiring only minutes a day of administration, MIMIX high availability is used by companies worldwide to ensure business continuity and boost productivity by eliminating both planned and unplanned IT downtime.
