Resiliency is the ability to rapidly adapt and respond to any internal or external opportunity, demand,
disruption, or threat, and continue business operations without significant impact. This includes:
- Continuous / near-continuous application availability
- Keeping your applications up and running throughout planned and unplanned outages
- Disaster Recovery (DR), which concentrates on recovering a site from an unplanned event.
Business resiliency is not something which just happens, but rather must be througly planned for and tested. This IBM Redbooks publication gives a broad understanding of resiliency on the IBM Z platform and explains why it is importance. It describes the technology and built in resiliency capabilities of the IBM Z platform at various hardware and software levels and discusses what to consider when pursuing higher levels of resiliency.
