BUS4i - the modern high availability for your IBM i Business Server!
The requirements for business continuity as we know it, are changing more and more. New challenges such as cloud and hosting mean that failover concepts must be constantly reviewed and adapted.
There is a need for greater flexibility and scalability, while at the same time being as easy to use as possible. Worldwide on premise locations or multi-cloud operation as well as operation by service providers should be possible without complications. But even planned downtimes such as server upgrades, backups, batch processes, etc. are no longer affordable for many companies today.
The solution - our Business Continuity System BUS4i!
While high availability was often seen as an insurance policy in the past, today it is much more of a tool that is indispensable for day-to-day business. Be it for maintenance tasks, for the possibility to create new backup windows or even for cloud migrations during operation.
