Business Continuity Specialists Group Helps Disaster-Proof Your Company’s Critical Systems

Share |

Nearly every organization depends on key applications and data to do business. That data has to be available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, no matter what. If business-critical systems go down due to a natural disaster or other outage and the data is lost or unavailable, the impact on customers and the bottom line can be huge.

With high-availability (HA) and disaster-recovery software from Traders S.A., BCS Group provides a robust, cost-effective solution to these challenges, enabling companies to keep data safe while keeping IT costs down.

With more than 20 years of experience in providing high-availability solutions, BCS Group provides a powerful, cost-effective set of applications for IBM i environments. The company’s core product, Quick-EDD/HA, helps ensure business continuity by replicating data in real time from a production server to a recovery server, helping guarantee 24-7 service access to data. Companies can quickly failover to a backup system or remote location in the event of a primary site outage. BCS Group can slash failover time compared with traditional, tape-based solutions, providing faster access to critical data. And the ease of use of the Quick-EDD/HA solution enables even businesses with limited IT staffing to benefit from an HA environment. Quick-EDD takes minutes to manage each day, allowing system administrators to focus on other business activities.

To curb the cost of data transmission for remote backup, Quick-EDD/HA provides built-in deduplication and other technologies designed to dramatically reduce bandwidth requirements. Bandwidth reductions ranging from 50 percent to 90 percent, depending on the customer’s applications, without requiring any compression devices or other appliances, are common. And built-in data encryption is a basic feature of Quick-EDD.

Quick-EDD/HA also makes role swaps fast and easy while allowing administrators to have control over the process, using fully customizable scripts that utilize full pause-and-play functionality.

In addition, BCS Group offers Quick-EDD/DR for replication between IBM i servers, Quick-EDD/DRm for replication between IBM i servers and heterogeneous databases, and Quick-EDD/CSi, a full audit and security suite.
