Traditional disaster recovery can involve hundreds of jobs, requires precise setup and an exact run sequence. The management of this process under the best circumstances is tedious. The DB2 BACKUP SYSTEM and RESTORE SYSTEM commands offer potential relief. For those who can afford it, Geographically Dispersed Parallel Sysplex (GDPS) provides an optimal solution. But what about recovery of the myriad of other applications you must integrate with? This session will explore the 21st century world of remote replication as an enterprise-wide solution for disaster recovery. It traces the experiences, lessons learned, and pitfalls of a mega hospital as they migrated their DR program into 21st century technology.
