Create an iSeries Disaster Recovery Plan for Your Datacenter by Partnering with Abacus Solutions

Having an iSeries disaster recovery plan in place is vital to keeping your datacenter operational in the event of a planned or unexpected declaration. Abacus Solutions – a leading supporter of iSeries and other IBM platforms for several decades – offers a robust selection of disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS) packages to fit the unique needs of your business. Whether your backup data is stored in the cloud or on traditional tapes, your operations can be restored in as little as 48 hours or sooner.

The recovery time objectives (RTOs) of our DRaaS services are as follows:

  • < 48 hours – Abacus will provide you with 30 days of unrestricted access to hardware that will allow you to recover your tape-based data.
  • < 24 hours – Abacus will work with you extensively to test and document a recovery plan for your tape-stored data. In the event of an unplanned declaration, we provide 100% hardware coverage, no matter who else is down, and 30 days of unrestricted access to a vendor-provided environment.
  • < 12 hours – Abacus will provide a daily deduplication backup of your data to the Abacus i Cloud where it can be quickly restored to similar or better hardware for your production.

When you partner with Abacus Solutions, we will be fully invested in your disaster recovery efforts and will provide all the technical resources necessary to ensure your environments are restored as quickly as possible. For 24/7 operations that require minimized downtime, we also provide high availability as a service (HAaaS), wherein we will recover your data in less than one hour using a vendor-hosted target environment.
