The Power Systems Capacity BackUp (CBU) offerings are designed to support our client's disaster recovery and high availability needs. The Capacity BackUp offerings recognize that true high availability or disaster recovery solutions require at least two systems. If one system is not available the other one "takes over". The CBU offering is designed to give our clients flexible and economic options for deploying business continuity operations.
The IBM i CBU with PowerHA solution combines the strengths of IBM Power Systems, IBM i, PowerHA SystemMirror for i 7.1 and CBU Editions. When the CBU and PowerHA for IBM i are purchased together, you are entitled to a service voucher good for three days of services applied toward the architecture, setup and install of your new cluster infrastructure. For North American customers there is also an affiliated rebate on the CBU server.
