Abstract: The IBM® i™ and its predecessors the iSeries® and AS/400® are known for their legendary reliability. However, one computer system 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, system availability is of utmost importance. Companies must prepare for unplanned outages resulting from disasters or other unforeseen circumstances and planned outages due to 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.

A high availability solution can include elements of data resiliency, device resiliency, and application resiliency and allow you to meet requirements for handling both planned and unplanned outages. This paper focuses on 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 Lawson M3 environments on IBM i. Even though we chose to focus on cross-site mirroring with geographic mirroring in this paper we also describe the other solutions that are available to you so you are aware of all the options that are available to you.
