Find all you data prior to an incident, even with a single Power i

Levering the IBM i operating system’s journaling functionality, CDP4i is a Continuous Data Protection solution (CDP) compatible with any local and remote FTP Storage:

  • Minimize your data loss down to 2 minutes or less (RPO) in case of a disaster or an incident
  • Restore files and libraries in previous versions with the Version Control System (VCS)
  • Increase availability of the server by safely reducing the frequency of standard backups
  • Complete an existing replication solution and fully control the RPO and RTO

Human error or bugs: CDP4i can restore objects potentially right up to the point of error or with a maximum gap of 2 minutes.

Disaster Recovery: CDP4i automatically recovers all the modified data since the last standard Backup with a maximum gap of 2 minutes.

 

CDP4i with standard Tape or Disk Backup

There is typically a 24-hour interval between Backups, which means that there is a potential for 24 hours of data loss!

Compared RPO and RTO : standard Backup vs. standard Backup + CDP4i

 

CDP4i with a HA Solution

Your RPO and RTO under control in 100% of IBM i unavailability causes 

High Availability Solutions offer good protection against Hardware/System problems or disasters on the production site.

CDP4i, our CDP Solution, includes Version Control System which also covers all other types of incidents such as human errors or Application bugs.

Replication architecture with CDP4i

Compared RPO and RTO: HA Solutions vs. HA + CDP4i

CDP4i: RTO under control in 100% of IBM i unavailability causes

Example: Disaster on the production Power i

        All the data produced on the Backup server
can be lost (single machine)

CDP4i continues to protect the data produced
on the Backup Power i

Example: Human error or bug

The corrupt data is replicated on the Backup server.
The last correct version is only available
on the last Backup

 

The corrupt data is replicated but the CDP4i VCS recovers the
objects in its version prior to the incident

Why use CDP4i

  • Reduce data loss (RPO) to 2 minutes even with a single IBM i

  • Recover faster and more reliably after an incident or a disaster

  • Restore files or libraries in previous versions

  • Reduce costs and improve reliability of Backups

  • Very low operating costs

  • Complete an existing replication solution and fully control the RPO and RTO

It’s nice to be able to recover to a point right before the data was corrupted!
