    This IBM Redpaper publication provides an overview of the current business continuity solutions for applications running on IBM Power Systems.

This book provides an overview of the High Availability and Disaster Recovery solutions that you can take advantage of to keep your business up and running with minimal interruption if an outage were to occur and then describes the features that have been introduced with the most current version of those products.
