What’s New in MIMIX DR?

  • A new virtual failover procedure allows you to test a failover to the backup server without impacting production operations. A window in VSP allows you to monitor changes made to the backup server during the test and the eventual return to normal replication.
  • Prioritized audits are now available to allow unchanged objects to be audited less frequently for faster audit completion and more efficient use of resources.
  • Continuous autofix technology detects and intelligently repairs exceptions found during replication and audits. This can significantly reduce day-to-day management requirements, while also enhancing performance. Full visibility into all objects requiring repair is provided through VSP.
  • Greater control of audit statuses allows administrators to tune audit results for their environment, reducing the number of reported exceptions and easing the audit management workload.
  • A new customizable, automated procedure for point-in-time operations enables tape-based backups or other custom processes to be performed on data from a user-defined point in time.
  • Faster, easier problem analysis and resolution is facilitated by default actions that guide administrators through the best approach for resolving synchronization issues. Objects on the production and backup servers can also now be compared side-by-side on the same screen with differences highlighted.
  • Addition information is provided in MIMIX Data Protection Reports to support the creation of optimal replication configurations.

Business challenges

Business of all sizes are subject to stiff penalties associated with regulatory mandates and demands for 24/7 access to critical data and applications by employees, customers and partners. If disaster destroys your data and applications, or causes significant downtime, the survival of your small or mid-sized business can be threatened.

Nightly backups or periodic snapshots are inadequate because data entered between backups is unprotected. Finding a maintenance window for backups can even be a challenge. Worse yet, it is a struggle to restore successfully from tape, and the time to retrieve tapes from storage and restore data is measured in hours or often days.

MIMIX DR is designed specifically to provide complete and affordable disaster recovery for entry-level IBM i servers, protecting your data and applications in real time and providing a faster recovery that you can count on.

How it works

MIMIX DR replicates changes in real time to a recovery server residing on-site, off-site, or in the cloud. In the event of an outage, mission-critical data and applications are protected right up to the point of failure and are fully recoverable. Checklist-driven failovers significantly reduce recovery times when compared to tape.

MIMIX DR can be deployed in a cloud-hosted environment as a solution for small businesses that want real-time disaster recovery protection, without the need to make a capital investment in a second system.
