3 Compelling drivers for implementing HA Solutions on an IBM i Cloud

Until recently, high availability solutions for IBM Power Systems servers running IBM i were reserved mostly for larger enterprises with on-premise or dedicated hosting solutions.  Given the emergence of the IBM i Cloud, high availability is now dramatically easier to use and a less expensive alternative for organizations of all sizes. Today, just about anyone running and IBM i environment can now afford the “luxury” of real-time, offsite data protection, as well as rapid and complete data recovery in the Cloud.

There are three compelling reasons for this shift.  First, IBM i Cloud solutions are more affordable than ever before due to decreased costs in hardware, communications and HA software that a hosting provider may pass on to customers.  Second, HA Solutions are readily available to help eliminate downtime during migrations.  Third, rising costs of downtime can cost your business dearly and can even spell doom for a business. A hosted IBM i Cloud with HA can help you avoid costs and unwanted consequences of downtime.
