IBM PowerHA SystemMirror for AIX

PowerHA Smart Assists streamline implementation and configuration
The PowerHA Smart Assist program simplifies implementation and configuration of PowerHA in DB2®, Oracle® and WebSphere® environments by reading the application configuration data and configuring PowerHA accordingly; the Smart Assists also provide all the necessary application monitors and scripts. All three Smart Assists are included in the PowerHA Standard Edition and the Enterprise Edition.

In addition to the Smart Assists, PowerHA includes a number of configuration assistants which streamline the configuration process for simpler configurations. PowerHA Standard Edition includes configuration assistants to help configure a basic 2 node cluster with any application using an IP address and shared storage, as well as an assistant for configuring NFS version 4 crossmounts for high availability.

The Enterprise Edition includes all the Assists from the Standard Edition, as well as a configuration assistant for configuring a 2 node, 2 site Disaster Recovery solution using PowerHA's Goegraphic LVM (GLVM) replication technology.
