The AS/400 and RS/6000 platforms have evolved greatly over 20 years, and now IBM has brought them together to create the Power Systems server line. The technologies and methods for data protection and system optimisation for both platforms have seen great changes as well.
Even as transaction and data storage volumes have increased, ensuring that the right data protection and management practices are in place has moved up from a line-level responsibility to a core boardroom mandate. This white paper, provided by Vision Solutions, reports the results of surveys conducted with more than 2,000 technical professionals and executives involved in the management of IBM i and AIX environments. Among the many findings of the survey, readers will learn:
- How well data protection and recovery solutions measure up to the expectations of IT and executive management
- Whether the task of keeping data and applications continuously available is being addressed as fully or consistently as protecting against catastrophic data loss
- How much technologies that recover individual files from accidental damage or deletion are maturing and gaining support
