Logicalis IT Forum : Wroxall Abbey : Tues 6/Wed 7 July : Update on HA strategies for IBM i and Power Systems / Solid State Drives

The next IT Forum meeting will be on Wednesday 7 July at Wroxall Abbey, West Midlands, with dinner/overnight stay on the Tuesday night 6 July.

The topic will be 'Update on HA strategies for IBM i and Power Systems'. We are aiming to cover the full range of remote journalling and internal/external storage options. their dependencies, practical implications, and operational complexities. We will also, following our brief discussion of Solid State Drives at the meeting in March, look in more detail at the advantages of using SSDs with IBM i, including a discussion of analysis techniques.

I am delighted to announce that our speaker will be David Tulloch, a senior Power Systems/IBM i Specialist from IBM UK with many years' experience of high availability deployments. David has spoken at the Forum in the past and has worked directly with many Forum members. I look forward to an insightful and very valuable session.
