New partnership provides unique solution for IBM i Customers
Des Moines, IA (October 4, 2016) – LightEdge Solutions, an enterprise grade cloud, colocation and managed services provider, announced today its partnership with Vision Solutions, a leading provider of high availability, disaster recovery and migration software and services. The partnership centers heavily around Vision’s MIMIX real-time replication tool and LightEdge’s Power Cloud solution, both designed specifically for IBM Power and IBM i OS systems, providing a unique backup and disaster recovery solution to the iSeries world.
By creating near real-time replication of an organization’s data with MIMIX software, customers can now perform data backups to LightEdge’s Power Cloud solution to offsite, secure LightEdge data centers. This solution allows for companies to resume business nearly instantly in case a disaster occurs.
In order for an enterprise currently operating on IBM i to create a similar, highly reactive and efficient process, it would need to purchase and co-locate an additional IBM Power Server. The Vision Solutions MIMIX and LightEdge Power Cloud solution eliminates the cost of acquiring a second AS400 assigned solely to disaster recovery.
“We are pleased that our MIMIX solution has been chosen by LightEdge to power its cloud solution,”” said Edward Vesely, EVP and Chief Marketing Officer of Vision Solutions. “Powered by MIMIX real-time replication, LightEdge’s Power Cloud is a cost-effective and unique DR solution for IBM i users.”
The partnership is part of LightEdge’s continued effort to provide the most forward thinking, cost-saving solutions to organizations looking to enhance and advance its overall technology strategy.
“Blending Vision Solutions and LightEdge creates a solution set that’s never before been available to the iSeries market”, said Jim Masterson, CEO of LightEdge. “LightEdge’s Power Cloud provides a cost effective disaster recovery option for iSeries users. Vision Solution provides the real time replication tools that allow customers to leverage Power Cloud to meet their Recovery Time and Recovery Point objectives.”
