Managed Availability for Signature

Managed Availability for Signature® from Fiserv is a full-featured system and data availability solution that is simple to use and easy on your budget, putting nonstop operations well within your grasp.

 


Overview

Downtime is inevitable. Disasters are rare, but they happen. Frequent system and data maintenance may impair your operations or even shut them down. The cost can be staggering. Fortunately, you can avoid it. Managed Availability for Signature, powered by Vision Solutions, maintains a real-time backup that can quickly take over as the production system when required. In addition, you can run tape backups on the secondary server, eliminating their impact on operations.

Using the most efficient replication method available for IBM i servers, remote journaling, Managed Availability for Signature works relentlessly to maintain a complete, accurate backup of your vital data and applications. It then stands ready to switch users to that backup whenever the primary system becomes unexpectedly unavailable or you need to perform system maintenance.

Built from the ground-up on a remote-journaling foundation, coupled with highly efficient apply process, Managed Availability for Signature replicates data and objects lightning-fast with little impact on the primary system. The result is a consistently up-to-date backup server without sacrificing production performance.

Managed Availability for Signature's self-configuring, self-monitoring and self-healing features free IT staff to do what they do best— design, build, maintain, manage and support your systems—while it monitors and manages itself.
