Easy, automated availability for critical AIX data and applications

What's New in Double-Take Availability for AIX 4.1?Double-Take Availability for AIX delivers simple high availability for physical, virtual and cloud-based AIX environments. Powerful real-time replication, combined with full-featured continuous data protection (CDP), replicates all your data and applications to a local or remote recovery server. Constant monitoring of your production server can trigger automated failover to the recovery server in the event of failure, providing true high availability in physical, virtual, cloud and mixed environments. The benefits are clear:

  • Protection from all forms of downtime based on heartbeat monitoring and automated failover in the event of failure
  • Defence against data loss and corruption through fast, flexible point-in-time recovery options, including full server roll-back capabilities
  • Low-touch, convenient management with thorough extensive automation and alerts that enable unattended monitoring
  • Flexibility to support mixed hardware, storage and AIX versions in physical, virtual or cloud environments

Not only will you achieve a rapid return on your Double-Take Availability investment by recovering the time and expense normally lost to downtime, you’ll add to your ROI both as you meet compliance regulations and as you perform maintenance, upgrades and even test new applications without interruptions to business operations.

  • Snapshot your data at a specific point of time and use replicated data in a variety of ways
  • Eliminate backup windows by performing your tape backups on replicated data with no production downtime
  • Testing new or modified applications on the secondary system poses no risk to production processes
  • System maintenance can be performed on the production server while system users work on the secondary system
  • Easily test and validate your failover – without downtime – to ensure your DR readiness
  • Use recovery system for queries, reports, training or offload processing
  • ROI is enhanced through flexible use of replicated data

Double-Take Availability for AIX expands on the replication technologies and continuous data protection capabilities of Double-Take RecoverNow for AIX by including cluster-health monitoring; lights-out notifications and customisation; and application integration.

Continuous, 24-hour surveillance of the cluster topology via LAN and WAN heartbeat monitoring technology, and of storage and application resources via resource-specific monitoring methods, allows you to take timely recovery actions.

For example, if a production system or one of its critical resources fails, you can quickly restore availability by transferring the application’s resources to the secondary system. When Double-Take Availability’s heartbeat monitoring technology detects a failure, it moves applications from the failed node to the operational node, keeping services available.

You can configure Double-Take Availability to perform all failover activities – including release of storage resources, IP address switching, re-establishment of continuous data protection replication, file system mounts, and application switching – automatically, or in a prompted, but automated manner, depending on business requirements.

Customisable user exit methods afford improved levels of lights-out operations – helping you to meet service level agreements – no matter what time of day a failure condition is detected.

The integration of applications, along with the service IP and storage resources those applications depend upon, ensures that all components of a business service, including storage, network, database and application resources, are made available on the most suitable server to serve business users.
