Overview of IBM VM Recovery Manager

Here are some key points:

  • Deployment Model: The solution uses a controller system (KSYS) to monitor the entire virtual machine (VM) environment.
  • Flexible Failover Policies: Recovery Manager DR provides flexible failover policies and storage replication management
  • Cost Savings: Unlike traditional cluster-based solutions, VM Recovery Manager DR does not require deploying backup VMs for disaster recovery. This reduces software licenses and administrative costs.

Benefits of IBM VM Recovery Manager:

  • Economical Solution: VM Recovery Manager is an easy-to-use and economical high availability (HA) and disaster recovery (DR) solution for AIX, IBM i, and Linux on Power Systems.
  • Avoid Duplicate Licensing: With the active/inactive configuration, production VMs can be moved to a cold standby configuration without requiring software licenses on the target system.
  • Automated Compliance Testing: VM Recovery Manager enables “single-click” automation of DR compliance testing.
  • Unified Solution: VMR is operating system agnostic, providing a uniform HA/DR solution across AIX, IBM i, and Linux environments.
  • Storage Replication Management: VM Recovery Manager DR manages storage replication and gracefully brings down production VMs for restart at the DR site.

If you’re looking to safeguard your critical databases, applications, or entire systems, consider leveraging IBM VM Recovery Manager. It equips you with reliable disaster recovery tools, ensuring business continuity even in challenging situations.
