The Value of Active-Active Sites with Q Replication for IBM DB2 for z/OS An Innovative IBM Client's Experience
Information Management

Redpaper, published 23 Jan 2015

Any business interruption is a potential loss of revenue. Achieving business continuity involves a tradeoff between the cost of an outage or data loss with the investment required for achieving the recovery point objective (RPO) and recovery time objective (RTO). Continuous system availability requires scalability, as well as failover capability for maintenance, outages, and disasters. It also requires a shift from standby to active-active systems. Active-active sites are geographically distant transaction processing centers, each with the infrastructure to run business operations and with ... [more]
