Top 3 Benefits
Maintain Business Continuity
When an emergency or disaster strikes, role swap to your on-premise or cloud backup server so your business can continue within minutes.
Use your secondary system to perform nightly backups, queries, and planned maintenance activities without impacting your production system.
Refine Data Replication
Replicate all of production or only select libraries and programs. Your data is available on your target server instantly.
Bring IBM i High Availability within Easy Reach
Automation minimizes ongoing, manual maintenance efforts for your admins
Affordable pricing makes HA accessible to IBM i shops of all sizes
Hundreds of organizations rely on this technology for business continuity
Key replication components created automatically for implementation in hours, not days
Protect data with instant replication
Using remote journaling and a high-speed apply routine, Robot HA can replicate 188 million journal transactions per hour across any distance—physical or virtual—and apply the data the moment it is received, which means that your hot backup is always a real-time copy of production.
Audit role swap readiness
Get peace of mind by confirming that you are ready to role swap at any moment. Manually trigger a role swap audit as needed or set it up to run at regular intervals. You can configure the audit to examine the objects that are most important to your data center. Robot HA can even help you automatically recover some of the issues the audit may reveal. After the audit runs, you can see at a glance if your system passed or escalate the results via email or by using Robot Alert or Robot Network.
Simplify role swaps
Robot HA makes it easy for you to test using different role swap scenarios to verify that replication is done correctly. Even test while users are still using production to minimize business disruption. The process of switching to your on-premise or cloud backup system is automated, so you can achieve your mandated recovery time objective (RTO) when disaster strikes.
Monitor your high availability environment
Robot HA automatically monitors all aspects of replication—including replication tasks in error, excessive transport or apply lags, user-defined conditions, and more—and sends notification for any issues that need attention, so you can quickly confirm that your hot backup system is ready for a role swap.
Automatically resync production and backup data
Robot HA is self-healing. It continuously audits and repairs objects and integrated file system (IFS) directories to ensure they match production. This synchronization process ensures that your data is up to date on the hot backup system and frees up your operators to focus on more important tasks.
Implement with ease
Robot HA is quick to install and easy to use. The appropriate journals, subsystems, and transport layer are created automatically, minimizing the manual efforts involved in implementation. Additionally, this IBM i high availability solution can be adjusted from the default settings, allowing you to refine the way it runs in your environment.

Data Replication Done Your Way
IBM i high availability doesn’t have to be all or nothing. Whether it’s all your user data and applications or just a few libraries, with Robot HA you decide what to replicate. Go granular or get it all, either way you are maximizing production uptime by replicating your irreplaceable business data to your on-premise or cloud backup site.
Proven Business Continuity in the Cloud and On-Premises
Hundreds of organizations rely on this technology for business continuity on IBM i. Robot HA delivers the ease-of-use you need to establish high availability at your organization plus advanced features—including trigger programs, physical file constraints, library rename capabilities, and bi-directional synchronization—to accommodate even the most complex environments.
Robot HA supports your IBM i cloud initiative by replicating data in real time to both local and cloud servers. Don’t have a DR site? Our disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS) offering helps you get to hybrid cloud faster. You can replicate to our cloud server, perform cloud backups, and even do cloud recovery all on a subscription basis.
Looking to the future, HelpSystems is committed to infusing Robot HA with mobile-friendly dashboards, helpful product integrations, and additional functionality that meet our quality standard on the IBM i platform, which is nothing short of exceptional.
