companies have focused on how
to handle disasters with disaster
recovery (DR). DR plans focus on
continuing operations, identifying
required backup data, establishing alternate sites, examining
the geographical characteristics
required for a backup site, calculating how much data loss and
downtime a company can tolerate,
and more.
The ultimate goal is to have
systems with continuous availability
(CA)-those that are always on and
available, at least within the bounds
of the requirements of the business.
Systems that deliver CA must be
available no matter what planned or
unplanned outage might occur.

The combination of
IBM Z hardware and
software features makes
Z resiliency tops in the
industry, and helps
businesses bounce back
from outages and
prevents them from ever
happening.
IBM Z Provides CA
IBM strives to provide CA for the
IBM Z mainframe system, to the
point where IBM named mainframe systems "Z" to represent
"zero down time." The IBM Z
server has been known for years
as a "five nines" system-one that
can achieve 99.999% availability. Many hardware and software
features make this possible. Some
are inherent to the hardware,
OSes and other system software.
Others must be implemented by
clients apart from already built-in
functionality.

IBM Z processor and storage
hardware offer a vast number of
functions and features that are
focused on providing high availability (HA). For example, processor
cores are dedicated as spares that
can be used if another core fails.

IBM Z memory uses a redundant
array of independent memory to
protect from memory failures.
And multiple I/O device channels

Black Friday in July?

FEATURING:

Top Performance Strategies
for Black Friday, Cyber Monday,
and other Peak Periods
For many mainframe sites, Black Friday
and Cyber Monday are their two highest
transaction days.

Brent Phillips
Managing Director, Americas
IntelliMagic Inc.

Even if you know when your biggest peaks
are coming, it's difficult to know if your
infrastructure can deliver the required
availability. You need an automated
way to derive valuable and accurate
intelligence about availability risks, so
that you can show the performance and
capacity teams what's most important
in all the RMF (or CMF) and SMF data for
the end-to-end infrastructure.

Todd Havekost

We'll discuss design requirements for
this kind of solution and demonstrate it
with real-world examples.
