MIMIX Availability was being used by my organization across the whole organization. MIMIX's role was to provide high availability to the iSeries systems running the production ERP, Lawson M3, known now as Infor. MIMIX was installed on two similar iSeries systems, one located in the MDF, the other iSeries in the HA data center. MIMIX addresses the problem of having high availability in a business which requires close to 24/7 iSeries system up time. The warehouse is online 24/6, but the business website is near 24/7, with the only downtime due to tape backups at night. Bottom line, if the primary data center was to go down impacting the iSeries, the business would suffer, the labor force would be put on hold and the greatest impact would be on the retailers, the customers, whom drive the business.
  • 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.
  • Web interface needs some improvement. I can't recall the exact issue, but I do remember having to refresh the screen every now and then to see the update results as expected.
  • Overall, there were some known bugs in the version the organization was utilizing. These were reported and know to be bugs and hopefully resolved in future release.
MIMIX is well suited when the organization requires a PLANNED Switch.

MIMX will also work for any unplanned switches. However, this is not the most ideal situation and we have had to perform at least once when the older iSeries hardware failed, and the business transactions were on hold, impacting the business. MIMIX support was required to be called upon to assist. We were able to get the new iSeries online within an hour, so thankfully the outage to the business was miminal. It is important that any organization utilizing MIMIX schedule, prepare, and plan for the PLANNED Switch, at least once per year, if not twice per year.
