In today’s global environment, more organizations must reduce their downtime to the minimum possible and achieve continuous availability of their systems. Products that are based on the IBM® Tivoli® Process Automation Engine, such as IBM Maximo® Asset Management, IBM Maximo Industry Solutions, and IBM SmartCloud® Control Desk, often play a role in such environments, and thus also have continuous availability requirements. As part of this situation, it is important to understand the high availability (HA) and disaster recovery (DR) capabilities of IBM SmartCloud Control Desk and IBM Maximo Products, and to ensure that all the components of an HA/DR solution are configured and tested to handle outages. In this IBM Redbooks® Solution Guide, by outlining some of the topologies that we tested, and the documentation that we created, we hope to demonstrate how robust the IBM SmartCloud Control Desk and IBM Maximo infrastructure can be.
