This IBM Redbook provides an example of the "ideal" Parallel Sysplex
environment (one that is configured to deliver the highest levels of
application availability), and describes the features and functions used
in this environment. For each function, we describe briefly what it does
and what its benefit is, and refer to the appropriate implementation
In this document, we discuss how to configure hardware and software,
and how to manage systems processes for maximum availability in a
Parallel Sysplex environment. We discuss the basic concepts of
continuous availability and describe a structured approach to
developing and implementing a continuous availability solution.
This document provides a list of items to consider for trying to achieve
near-continuous application availability and should be used as a guide
when creating a high-availability Parallel Sysplex.
Information is provided in recommendations lists and will help you
configure and manage your IT environment to meet your availability
This publication is intended to help customers’ systems and operations
personnel and IBM systems engineers to plan, implement, and use a
Parallel Sysplex in order to get closer to a goal of continuous availability.
It is not intended to be a guide to implementing or using Parallel Sysplex
as such. It only covers topics related to continuous availability.
