Achieving Rapid Data Recovery for IBM AIX Environments
An Executive Overview of MIMIX for AIX
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. IT personnel generally face several challenges when implementing an operational plan that protects both data and applications:
- How can I ensure my applications and data are recoverable, without impacting business operations?
- Are there any data protection approaches that meet my recovery point and recovery time objectives or must I lessen my objectives?
- Can I afford to implement a comprehensive plan that covers both my local and remote (disaster) recovery requirements?
- Are there cost-effective alternatives that meet my requirements?
Operational requirements are not the only mandates that may drive the design of your recovery plan. Various industry-specific regulations, including, among others, HIPAA, Sarbanes-Oxley and HITECH, specify requirements for data retention and recoverability.
To meet these requirements, businesses have to deal with a variety of data vulnerabilities: inadvertently deleted files or records (operator error), viruses or hackers that cause data corruption or deletion, and natural disasters that put much more than just your data at risk. Distributed or branch offices may also have ease-of-use needs that may not be an issue in larger, more centralized businesses.
So, the question is, do you have a plan that meets your recovery requirements to your satisfaction across these areas?
