Key Features

Protect data with instant replication

Data replication with Robot HA

Using remote journaling and a high-speed apply routine, Robot HA can replicate 188 million journal transactions per hour across any distance and apply the data the moment it is received, which means that your hot backup is always a real-time copy of production.

Simplify role swaps

Simplify role swaps with Robot HA

Robot HA makes it easy for you to test five 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 hot backup system is automated, so you can achieve your mandated recovery time objective (RTO) when disaster strikes.

Monitor your high availability environment

Robot HA is self-monitoring IBM i high availability software

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 high availability software

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 easy to install and establish IBM i high availability

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.
