The other day, I met with a customer who had recently been promoted to senior administrator for a company serving the auto industry. His old boss had retired, and now that he was in charge, he was on his way to Rochester, MN from the company’s west coast offices to learn more about IBM Power Server VIOS technology.
It seems like we can never offer too many security options in the applications we deliver to the market, and Robot/SCHEDULE Enterprise is no exception. This solution helps you build an IBM i-centric schedule for controlling batch processes and monitoring across IBM i, UNIX, Linux, and Windows—all controlled from your most reliable system, IBM i.
Wondering about best practices for automating your IBM i processes with Robot systems management solutions? Take a look at this list and get off to a good start.
IBM i users have grown accustomed to the convenience and performance of a homogenized storage environment. After all, who better to supply the disks tied to Power Systems servers than IBM engineers themselves? With the introduction of the POWER7 series, however, customers now have some interesting new options to investigate.
The three Vs of big data are volume, velocity, and variety, but in order derive value from big data, IT departments need tools to store massive amounts of data (volume) and make sure it is always available for quick analysis (velocity).
IT departments and line-of-business employees now expect unfettered access to key corporate data from their smartphones and tablets.
Sustainability planning is always on the agenda for data center managers as they decide what combination of skills and technologies will be required to manage the digital workloads and business expectations of tomorrow.
Let’s be honest. Finding good training for your staff and instructors who really know IBM i can be an issue. Luckily, HelpSystems offers essential training on IBM i operations from experts with over 20 years of experience.
Did you know that Robot SCHEDULE can be installed directly into an independent ASP from the product maintenance wizard? Learn more about how Robot supports IASPs.
Last month, Chuck Stupca (retired IBMer) and Chuck Losinski (HelpSystems) presented a webinar discussing FlashCopy for IBM i . Based on the attendance, it looks like this is a very important topic for many of you so I wanted to explain how FlashCopy ties to Robot products.
Even though IBM i has proven its worth for more than 30 years now, there are still numerous ways to maximize its use. Application modernization is one initiative worth pursuing to gain the most value from the operating system.
It was great to see Infor vending at COMMON last year. I took the opportunity to talk with Ross Freeman, IBM i Strategy Lead at Infor, and hear why they are passionate about IBM i—as you know, it’s something we have in common.
How can IBM i applications be modernized and brought in line with evolving enterprise expectations for user experience and extensibility? Much of the software for the platform still runs code from the 1990s, which is understandable given binary compatibility, but the truth is that the standard “green screen” isn’t state-of-the-art anymore.
Have you recently adopted an IBM server running IBM i and don’t know where to begin with system operations? You are not alone.
As time marches on, your business grows and your Power Systems running IBM i grow with you. You add processors, disks, an external SAN, virtual partitions, and all of the latest technology that keeps your end user’s systems available. And as it expands, your system remains competitive both in processing power and cost with any enterprise class system in the world.
The concept of high availability has been on the minds of IT decision makers in the last several years. As the recent IBM Top Concerns survey revealed, comprehensive high availability is the second highest concern among IBM i users, with only keeping current skill sets coming ahead.
As IASP technology continues to grow, so will its uses for high availability (HA) and backups. The result of that will be shrinking hardware costs and complexity and increased redundancy.
May 2, 2014 marked another milestone for the IBM i OS. IBM continues to expand its technology support with its latest release, IBM i 7.2. Take a closer look at the new features you’ll want to know about.
VTL can be faster than LTO if you take advantage of the virtual features, but if your backup rules stay the same, you may be disappointed. Read on.
