MIMIX Review

It is fairly easy to add data groups and/or files to the intended replication group


What is most valuable?

The built-in remote journaling and the comparison tools.

How has it helped my organization?

We used it solely for IBM AS400 replication for disaster recovery/failover purposes.

What needs improvement?

Could make it easier to fix object errors.

For how long have I used the solution?

Six to seven years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Nothing out of what we expected for object replication.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

No, fairly easy to add data groups and/or files to the intended replication group.

How is customer service and technical support?

A nine out of 10.

Which solutions did we use previously?

At a previous installation, we used external storage for the AS/400 and did a complete hardware disaster recovery, which was a great DR strategy but provided very little HA.

How was the initial setup?

Can seem complex for new product users.

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

Just tell them you're looking at a hardware-based DR solution and they should come back with a lower cost.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

No.

What other advice do I have?

Make sure you have at least two people learn it inside and out, so replication and object errors, when they occur, can be managed.
