Resiliency Is Key
in an 'Always on'
World

Jude Buffum

R

esiliency is important for a number of reasons. It enables us
to bounce back during difficult situations, it helps us maintain balance and it protects us from seemingly overwhelming
circumstances.
The importance of resiliency goes beyond character traits, too.
Having resilient computer systems that spring back and recover
quickly when a disaster occurs is critical. In today's digital economy, resiliency is a key business imperative for enterprises and their
customers.
In a perfect world, systems should always be available and have
the ability to avoid disasters before they happen. Luckily, we have a
system with those exact capabilities, along with 99.999% availability:
IBM Z*. Learn how IBM Z hardware and software maximize resiliency
on page 10.
IBM strives to provide continuous availability for IBM Z, and is
doing so in several ways. The IBM Resiliency Maturity Model, for example, maps progression for mainframe clients with different levels of
resiliency requirements. Learn more in "How Resilient Is Your IBM Z
System of Record?" on page 14.
On page 51, you'll learn how IBM GDPS solutions are raising the
bar for IBM Z resiliency. GDPS solutions take into account the nature
of the data replication in place, protect clients' systems of record from
logical data corruption and more.
IBM Z solutions also helped the Department of Treasury of Puerto
Rico implement a more comprehensive disaster management system.
Read "Fail Safe" on page 20 to learn more.
Three new IBM Z offerings-Tailored Fit Pricing for IBM Z, IBM
z/OS* Container Extensions and z/OS Cloud Broker-are strengthening
security, resiliency and open development for hybrid cloud infrastructure. Read more in "Elevating Hybrid Cloud" on page 28.
In today's "always-on" world, resiliency is everything. In this issue,
you'll learn how the IBM Z platform maximizes resiliency, enables
comprehensive disaster management, heightens security and more.

Jude Buffum received his Bachelor of Fine
Arts in graphic arts from the Tyler School
of Art and went on to teach design and
illustration classes both there and at the
University of the Arts. His work has received
awards from Graphic, Communication Arts,
American Institute of Graphic Arts, 3x3, Print
magazine, the Society of Illustrators and
American Illustration. His fine art has also
been exhibited internationally. Jude's art is
featured in "Fail Safe" on page 20.

Mark McGinnis
"Inspiration for projects that
come my way happen from all
sorts of spaces and things. And
being an illustrator means not
always being glued to my work
space. Some of my best thinking
comes from swimming laps,
running errands or even riding
on the subway. The important
thing is to be prepared when an
idea strikes, so having an iPad
or my sketchbook with me at all
times is important. Only when
I have collected a bunch of
ideas do I make my way to
my studio to develop them
into tight concepts."
-Mark McGinnis, illustrator
