Abstract: The IBM i and its predecessors the iSeries and AS/400 are known for their legendary reliability. However, a single computer system, no matter how resilient, may no longer be sufficient in providing the level of availability required in today’s demanding business environment. As companies continue to increases their reliance on computer systems and the mission critical data that these systems store and process, availability is of utmost importance. Companies must prepare for unplanned outages, resulting from disasters or other unforeseen circumstances, and planned outages, resulting from regularly scheduled maintenance or other planned activities. Regardless of whether the outage is planned or unplanned, companies must be prepared to handle any outage and keep downtime to a minimum.

High availability solutions can include elements of data resiliency, device resiliency, and application resiliency. This paper explores the use of PowerHA for i and more specifically the Solution Based GUI in simplifying the implementation of a cross-site mirroring with geographic mirroring solution for SAP environments on IBM i.
