Secure High Availability Replication Processor is a managed service offering from IBM Global Services (BCRS division: Business Continuity and Resiliency Services) specifically conceived for the iSeries marketplace. It uses the latest iSeries technology combined with leading edge High Availability software from Vision Solutions and managed services expertise from IBM Global Services. Secure High Availability Replication Processor is charged on an annual or quarterly service charge basis over three or five years. It is easier to budget for and to cost justify to the Board.
As business critical processes increasingly depend on technology, reaction to any disruption in operations or services needs to be swift and effective to protect both revenues and reputation. Volumes of data continue to expand while the time available for data back up shrinks. Add the growing number of standards and regulations that dictate constant availability of information and organisations urgently need to find an alternative to traditional, 'cold standby' disaster recovery.
Many are turning to high availability solutions. These support 24-hour operation but only with considerable investment in infrastructure, skilled operational staff and specialist software.
IBM has a cost-effective alternative. Secure High Availability Replication Processor is a unique, fully managed solution providing a secure high availability and recovery service for the iSeries. Secure High Availability Replication Processor allows access to the computing power of IBM together with a wide range of data protection and business continuity options that are, for the first time, affordable for all iSeries users.
