There is a lot of buzz at this time of year about what technologies will be “hot” for the new year. In a conversation I recently had with Peter Briggs, president of DSC, he talked about the growing popularity of fully managed high availability services.
“DSC has continued to see steady growth in the adoption of its fully managed high availability service for the IBM “power” systems,” explained Briggs. “We are able to deliver a stable and tested solution for high availability and data recovery for less than what it would cost an organization to build and manage its own solution internally.”
Briggs further explained how DSC’s managed HA service works. “We have a team of high availability experts that maintain stability and functionality of our clients’ replicated systems utilizing HA software solutions from Visions Solutions Inc. DSC takes full responsibility for the replication, which is monitored and maintained 24/7 x 365. Our certified staff will correct errors, run audits, perform role swaps and provide detailed reporting all under a subscription basis. Almost all of our HA clients have moved to the fully managed service and rely on us for the availability of their data.”
