Disaster Recovery, DRaaS, IBM, IBM Power

Recovery Point DRaaS for IBM Power is a Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) offering that works with IBM’s Global Mirror, Dell EMC’s SRDF, and Pure Async replication technologies.  It works to maintain identical data in both the source and target volume(s) in order to provide data protection and disaster recovery for all IBM Power workloads and supports both AIX and IBM i.

This service replicates the data between two sites, over extended distances, and also forms consistency groups at regular intervals allowing a clean recovery of applications. Recovery Point’s DRaaS for IBM Power provides a scalable, storage replication solution that provides data integrity and data consistency with minimal performance impact on the applications at the primary site. It is implemented using IBM FlashSystem, Dell EMC PowerMax, or Pure FlashArray (for AIX only) storage systems at both sites and can be augmented with replicated Virtual Tape Library (VTL) solutions such as Cybernetics and Dell EMC Data Domain. Additionally, Recovery Point’s Managed Resiliency for Power Systems provides automation and orchestration to ensure rapid recovery of your critical LPARs.
