MIMIX Review

Remote journaling allows us to put the load on the target system as opposed to the source, but it lacks prosing support for multiple journals per data group.


What is most valuable?

The remote journaling and audit functions.

How has it helped my organization?

By implementing remote journals, we have put the load on the target system as opposed to the source.

What needs improvement?

Prosing support for multiple journals per data group would be nice.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've used it on and off for 18 years.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

No issue encountered.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

No issue encountered.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

No issue encountered.

How are customer service and technical support?

Customer Service:

Customer support is good but they do try to squeeze out those service dollars.

Technical Support:

They know their products well.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I've used DataMirror but it was sold to IBM and we got a better deal from Vision.

How was the initial setup?

We have a complex environment, so it depends on your particular environment which will be custom based on your business, typically.

What about the implementation team?

We did it in-house.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Negotiate hard.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

IASP and hardware based solutions but the business would not go for the spend.

What other advice do I have?

Make sure you have a good understanding of your environment and how replication can affect it.
