System i High Availability Keeps Companies Running Seamlessly

With System i High Availability as a Service (HAaaS), you can ensure that your IT environment is always up and running, even in the event of a disaster. That’s because the best HAaaS solutions make regular replications of your local environment – or “production” environment – and keep them in a remote, cloud-hosted “target” environment. The two environments are kept synchronized so that during any major event that would otherwise disable your datacenter, you can simply continue working on the target environment until a convenient time for the production environment to be brought back up and swapped in.

There are many different ways that high availability can be very useful to your IT department, especially when the target environment is hosted remotely via cloud computing. The most obvious, of course, is that if any sort of disaster should occur that might cause unexpected downtime in your system, it can remain available for your employees to use. Another, however, is that important updates can be performed on your system without affecting the uptime – without high availability services, many companies will ignore these updates in order to avoid downtime.
