The high-availability concept behind Fujitsu BS2000/OSD business servers is unrivaled when it comes to providing maximum reliability in missioncritical environments:
With ”State-of-the-art“ high availability for mainframe guest systems and applications the HighAvailability (HA) features of the Business Server SQ series is providing ”Always-on“ availability of mainframe applications thanks to LiveMigration (LM)
”Always-on“ availability of mainframe applications thanks to LiveMigration (LM)
LiveMigration (LM) is the world’s first and only feature on mainframes to offer the customer through downtime elimination a maximum degree of availability for the users of these ”business-critical“ applications. Application areas are e.g. server/infrastructure maintenance slots or optimal workload management through the uninterrupted relocation of mainframe guest systems and applications during ongoing operation.
”Best-in-class“ business continuity through HighAvailability (HA)
HighAvailability (HA) is an innovative solution for mainframe infrastructure that minimizes unplanned downtimes (e.g. due to power outages, operating errors, etc.). Implementation is through the automatic restarting of systems and applications in a cluster failover solution. The availability of individual mainframe guest systems and applications can be automated and prioritized according to customer requirements. HighAvailability stands out here due to its very easy configuration and ease of use.
Solution administration is quite simple using the system’s web-based SQ manager – this is true for monitoring HA scenarios and failover, as well as for system migrations during productive operations (LM). Administration is also supported by secure, automated processes. The SQ Manager is the central tool for configuring and managing the entire mainframe environment. "The dashboard provides a status overview for all components, such as servers, units and peripherals, not to mention the operating and guest systems and the applications. Event-driven alarm management ensures that the system administrator is always well-informed."
BS2000/OSD business servers with unmatched resiliency for decades
Service tasks are very seldom required
When maintenance is necessary, e.g.software updates or upgrading hardware, most of this work can be done when systems are in productive operation thanks to LiveMigration and other innovative functions.
Prevent potential outages
BS2000/OSD business servers prevent outages that could be caused by operating error or workload problems at various levels
Simplified system management reduces the risks of operating error
The high level of automation also contributes to stable operations
A large number of rule-based tasks are carried out by the system itself, along with continuous system status and evaluation reporting.
Minimize the impact of unplanned outages
The availability of BS2000/OSD business servers can be increased up to 99.999 percent
Intelligent clustering of several servers
Optimized operability, capacity utilization and availability
Very efficient and low-cost solution for reducing downtime to an absolute minimum
