What is High Availability
High Availability is an automated process for minimizing business
function downtime associated with planned or unplanned outages.
Typically utilizes replicated hardware platforms to eliminate single
points of failure. The business function fail-over normally occurs
between two or more physical frames within the same data center using a
single shared storage system.
- Elimination of single points of failure (SPOF's) are a necessary part of HA.
- The goal is to minimize downtime for business functions, not systems.
- This is NOT non-stop computing, downtime will be experienced during fail over.

is now offering it's customers a new and improved self-service
capabiltiy to modify their AIX LPAR leases on an as needed basis and
Previously the AIX self-service automatic deployment system allowed
customers to select a lease period on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis.
And it allowed the customer to select the number of CPU's and amount of
memory to assign to their LPAR. Then if the customer wanted to renew the
lease, they had to renew using the original lease period, cpu, and
The new enhanced AIX self-serve automatic deployment system allows
customers to renew LPARs and select different lease periods, number of
CPUs, and amount of memory.
So if a customer had originally leased an AIX LPAR as follows:
- 2 CPUs
- 4 GB memory
- 2 Week Lease Period
The new enhanced capabilities will allow the customer to renew their
LPAR leases and choose different values for the LPAR resources, for
example, thru the self-service interface they could change the lease to
- 4 CPUs
- 8 GB memory
- 1 Day Lease Period
This additional capability provides the perfect AIX development
environment for those who need to perform software development on a
limited budget and only want to pay for the exact resources they need,
when they need them.
