Vision Solutions, a leading provider of business resilience solutions for IBM Power Systems, announced today the availability of MIMIX for AIX 5.1, formerly Double-Take for AIX. The MIMIX for AIX family of products, including MIMIX Availability, MIMIX DR and MIMIX Move, offers the most straightforward, full-featured solutions on the market for high availability, disaster recovery and migration for AIX.
According to Vision’s 2017 State of Resilience Report, 33 percent of businesses that experienced a failure requiring the use of their HA/DR solution lost up to an hour of data, and 37 percent lost a day or more. MIMIX Availability for AIX, an easy, automated high availability solution, and MIMIX DR for AIX, a reliable, affordable disaster recovery tool, both deliver near-zero data loss in the face of disaster. They also provide continuous data protection, enabling data and server recovery from a past point in time.
MIMIX for AIX’s platform-independent replication supports a mix of hardware, storage and AIX operating system versions on physical, virtual or cloud servers. As a result, MIMIX Move for AIX provides risk-free migration of AIX applications and data with near-zero downtime.
“MIMIX for AIX 5.1 offers businesses relying on AIX servers the most robust solutions package on the market with features unavailable elsewhere,” said Alan Arnold, EVP and CTO of Vision Solutions. “IT professionals can ensure their business’ most valuable data is always available and accessible, even when a would-be disaster strikes.”
