The biggest advantage of using Apache Geode is DB like consistency. So for applications whose data needs to be in-memory, accessible at low latencies and most importantly writes have to be consistent, should use Apache Geode. For our application quite some amount of data is static which we store in MySQL as it can be easily manipulated. But since this data is large R/w from DB becomes expensive. So we started using Redis. Redis does a brilliant job, but with complex data structures and no query like capability, we have to manage it via code. We are experimenting with Apache Geode and it looks promising as now we can query on complex data-structures and get the required data quickly and also updates consistent.

MIMIX is clearly the best IBMi solution for most high availability and disaster recovery situations. It provides rock-solid replication and agile ability to switch quickly. In its earlier days, some organizations used it as a primary daily system backup method. With the advent of Ransomware, this is no longer advisable. The strength of MIMIX real-time replication becomes a weakness if IBMi data becomes infected. As in any real-time replication product, at that point, two systems are infected.

Pros
Apache
  • Super Fast data pull/push
  • Provided ACID transactions, so it works like a SQL Database
  • Provides replication & partitioning, so our data is never lost and extraction is super fast. NoSql like properties

  • Redundancy - needs to be available at a moment's notice.
  • Protection - the business would be greatly impacted, therefore protection of production systems is key to the business succeeding.
  • Usability - needs to be user-friendly, easy to navigate and operate, as it will be required at any given time.

Cons
Apache
  • Needs more supporting languages. Out of box Python, Nodejs adapters would be wonderful
  • Currently it supports just KV Store. But if we could cache documents or timeseries data would be great
  • Needs more community support, documentation.

  • Possible false sense of security for ransomware attacks.

Still Experimenting. Initial results are good. we need to figure out if we can completely replace Redis. Cost wise if it makes sense to keep both or replacement is feasible.

MIMIX is software built for availability. By its nature it is must be available. As long as the underlying system and communication network are available MIMIX is working. And if there are failures in either of those, MIMIX is designed to allow for a quick and resilient recovery once underly systems or communications are restored

I have never seen MIMIX itself be a performance bottleneck. However it is important to consider the network in overall performance of any remotely replicated systems. MIMIX can only replicate as fast as the network allows. But a strong capability of MIMIX is its ability to "buffer" its replication, so it can be sent without error as the network allows

Support is available and efficient. Response time is good and likelyhood of a quick resolutiion is high. However the mature solid product and proactive management tools, fortunately make support requirements relatively rare. The support for version upgrades is also strong, but again the basic upgrade process is usually straightforward and well documented.

Still Experimenting. But looks promising as it has query capabilities over complex data structures

We used MIMIX for its role for iSeries high availability. We used Double Take by Vision Solutions for our production Windows environment. MIMIX is designed for iSeries, and Double Take was designed for Windows. We had VMware virtual environment, running multiple VMs for production ERP Lawson M3, now Infor. Both MIMIX and Double Take played the role well for what needed to be done. Without either MIMIX or DoubleTake, the business would have been impacted.

MIMIX works to its intended functionality. It provides real time data replication across multiple partitions and systems as defined. I have never witnessed any problems with MIMIX in scaling to larger systems or adding new data groups. In conjunction with the inherent scalability of IBMi scalability and configuration flexibillity are rather quick and easy.

Return on Investment
Apache
  • Still experimenting so difficult to quote
  • For a small size project/teams might be an overkill as it still has certain learning curve
  • For Medium to large projects with complex Data Structures that need to be queried with a fast o/p it definitely works

  • MIMIX had a positive impact, as the organization has had to rely upon the unplanned switch.
  • MIMIX definite must if organization is running i Series, and business needs are 24/7.
  • Without MIMIX in place, the downtime impact to the business would have been great.
