If you are in a position where an upgrade or refreshment of equipment is due and you are considering your DR plan we can help you.
We have completed several of these types of installations recently and with the right planning it is very easy to manage. Each situation is of course different.
We ensure the customer has considered things such as
- where the DR site going to be,
- power requirements,
- application software readiness for V5R4,
- anticipated role swapping etc.
A whole project including upgrade, CBU and *noMAX is easily achieved. The CBU offerings from IBM have made your DR and High Availability a very cost effective solution.
The latest site we have completed was up and running within 4 weeks of the new equipment arriving, including the 2 day installation and implementation of *noMAX HA software.
The financial controller and IT manager agreed when they saw the total cost of ownership was reduced – software maintenance (from P30 to P20 machine), hardware maintenance reduced, CBU box priced well below the normal production box pricing.
There were also some parts left over from the upgrade. We purchased the parts, which was an added bonus for the customer.
