Recovery Point IBM i DRaaS is a Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) offering that uses IBM’s Global Mirror replication technology to provide data protection and disaster recovery for your IBM i environment between two sites, over extended distances. The service includes continuous data protection (CDP), cloud storage and on-demand IBM Power Systems recovery infrastructure to deliver near zero Recovery Point performance. This is a highly scalable, asynchronous storage replication solution that provides data integrity and data consistency without performance impact on the applications at the primary site. Recovery Point IBM i DRaaS with Global Mirror can be enhanced with IBM’s PowerHA SystemMirror to enable a fully automated failover and failback for your IBM i workloads.

Our flexible managed services options let you select the level of management you need, always supported by 24×7 direct access to Recovery Point’s highly credentialed staff. You can even select Managed Application Recovery services and we’ll orchestrate your recoveries completely and hand you back your applications, ready for login. And the best part is you don’t have to take any risk – we offer a no-cost proof of concept test so you can try before you buy.
