Our education session :

Day 2 (Wednesday June 8th) at 8am:  Learn how to use from IBM i the SnapShot/FlashCopy ‘magic’ function (and reduce daily work).

Learn how to configure and (automatically) manage your IBM i and your external storage to take advantage of the FlashCopy/SnapShot technology. 

This ‘magic’ function can save plenty of daily work to IBM i users, by transforming many hours operations into a few minutes, e.g. : Pre-prod or UAT environments refresh, easy roll back to a clean Database (or IFS) after incidents (corruption, errors, loss), daily backups (and even Save21) performed in less than 2 minutes.

Learning Objectives:

– Understand this external storage technology and discover many interests by using it.
– Learn how to start and use it for and from an IBM i partition, manually or by program.
– Get the list of elements, tips and gotchas to take care of when cloning a partition.

Our products :

Our partners and customers testify that our 3 products are extremely easy to install and operate ! Here they are:

(1) “FLASH for i” : manages from IBM i the INSTANT-COPY of your IBM i Production partition. The generated “clones” will be used to make hot backups (including Save21 and BRMS backups) or to refresh tests, preprod environments, or to perform extractions or to generate daily several recovery disks copies.

(2) “CONTROL for i” : enriches your monitoring solution (Nagios, PRTG or plenty others) with 150 “checks” to control EVERYTHING running on your IBM i partition. Done without a single Line of Code

(3) “RECOVER for i” : allows you to automatically make “incremental hot-backups” of your data (e.g. every 5 min.) and to export them offsite so that they can be automatically applied back in case of a crash or database corruption.
