High Availability in the Cloud

This is the last post in this four-part series on high availability (HA). The focus of this post is HA in the cloud, which is challenging to discuss because the cloud is different depending on many factors. The cloud is different as it varies widely by service provider, i.e., IBM SoftLayer is significantly different from Amazon Web Services. The cloud is also different if you do it in house yourself with your own hardware and software integration or use ready-made Infrastructure as a Service like IBM PureSystems offerings designed to be up and running out of the box in as little as four hours.

Excel and RPG: Sometimes Things Just Don't Add Up!

This post was prompted by an email from a reader asking for assistance with a problem trying to duplicate an Excel spreadsheet in RPG. The method being used was to extract the required data using SQL and then pass the raw data to Excel to perform the calculations. Rather than have this extra Excel step, the thought was to have RPG produce the report directly from the extracted data. Only one problem--the reader couldn't make the RPG version match the Excel one.

RPG and IBM i Programming Languages

One of the most frequent questions I get when I discuss the future of IBM i is a very open-ended question about IBM’s commitment to RPG. This is natural, I suppose, because when many people think of our platform, they think of RPG, which has historically been the most commonly used programming language on IBM i and its predecessors.

Physical Data Modeling Using IBM Data Studio

I haven't written about IBM Data Studio in awhile, so I thought I'd dig into the latest version. In addition to downloading version 4.1.1, I also downloaded the current version of DB2 Express-C (V10.5) so I could have a working database.
