High Availability As A Service

Joule Tech’s High Availability-As-A-Service (HAaaS) offering provides IBM i customers with a subscription-based HA solution that gives them the protection they need, at a much lower cost and a reduced workload, while ensuring that they have exceptional professional support throughout implementation, role-swap testing, and in the event of an emergency.

While many companies appreciate the benefits of implementing a high availability solution, for many it comes at a cost, and a distraction from their business as usual, that they would rather avoid.

Joule Tech’s HAaaS offering enables companies to deploy an HA solution for their IBM i environment that comes at a lower entry cost, and a reduced headache level, by offloading much of the requisite work to a team of experienced professionals. Joule Tech’s offering is also flexible in its hardware deployment models – with the options of using your own hardware (onsite), leasing hardware (onsite or off-site), or running your HA IBM i server in the cloud.

Value Proposition

Setting up an effective high availability solution for your IBM i systems requires an investment in money and effort. And admittedly, it is an investment that can be quite costly. Furthermore, many organisations may find that they have neither the experience nor the bandwidth to implement such solutions themselves, or simply do not desire the headache involved in doing so.

For such organisations, outsourcing their HA implementations can be an attractive alternative to managing it entirely in house. And there are multiple benefits. First off, it means that they do not need to skill up their team in yet another skill set – they can remain focused on their primary jobs.

In addition to allowing them to focus on business-as-usual, engaging in an HAaaS model makes for a big change on the budget – moving the costs of an HA deployment from a CAPEX model to an OPEX one. While for many organisations, holding all your production data on-premise (even your backup data) is a requirement, there are some organisations who will be able to take advantage of moving even their HA server to the cloud, as many IBM i companies are beginning to explore and do … further reducing their CAPEX costs.

In summary, the direct benefits of Joule Tech’s HAaaS Offering are:

  • No capital expenditure
  • A simple annual figure, that covers of all services (implementation, testing, support, role swap testing)
  • Option for IBM i on-prem or in cloud
  • 24x7x365 support
  • Allows you to focus on your BAU, while Joule Tech manages the HA systems

Joule Tech has a great deal of experience in implementing HA and DR systems on the IBM i. Drawing from this, we are able to work with companies to design a High Availability service agreement that meets their organisation’s unique requirements –  while reducing their workload and requiring no upfront investment (CAPEX).
