Why Cloud?

The Benefits of Cloud Availability

The Cloud is a means of delivering computing power as a service rather than as a product, meaning it is ideally suited to Business Continuity. Offering an affordable alternative to customers without sacrificing performance, makes Cloud services a highly attractive option for organizations that can find a balance between security and financial requirements and do not require a strong in-house technical team of IBM i experts.

Maxava Cloud solutions come in two main models:

  • Customer premise-based production system to Cloud-hosted DR system (hybrid Cloud)
  • Cloud-hosted production system to Cloud-hosted DR system

Within hybrid Cloud we offer full role swap-capable High Availability and also our lower cost Real-time Vaulting™ solution.

Conventional in-house Disaster Recovery (DR) and High Availability (HA) solutions are preferred in some business sectors such as banking, where major security concerns are paramount or where customers have a strong in-house IBM i technical team. Maxava fully supports these organizations through both Enterprise+ and SMB Maxava software.

Maxava’s Cloud-based models are also known as Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS), Software as a Service (SaaS) and Recovery as a Service (RaaS), the benefits of which can be found below.
