Adding another clustering solution to its AS/400 product suite, Lakeview Technology (Oakbrook, Ill.) has announced the release of MIMIX ClusterServer for AS/400. This new solution has been validated as a Cluster Server Middleware product for the AS/400.

A completely integrated solution, MIMIX ClusterServer combines software products and services with the cluster resource services functions available in OS/400 V4R4 and ClusterProven ISV applications. This combination delivers high-availability clustering for continuous access to data and applications, during planned application switchovers or unplanned application failovers.

“Downtime is costing U.S. businesses billions per year and the needs for data and application availability has quickly accelerated in the market. Customers are looking for solutions to meet this need,” says David Wegman, VP of marketing at Lakeview Technology. ”What makes MIMIX ClusterServer so different than other solutions available, is that it enables a fully integrated solution that will cluster enable applications, provide a Java-based cluster manager and afford a single point-of-contact for worldwide support. This is the best-of-breed clustering solution our customers have been asking for.”

The MIMIX ClusterServer includes MIMIX Cluster Manager for AS/400, MIMIX Cluster Optimizer for AS/400, MIMIX ACE for AS/400, MIMIX ACT for AS/400; MIMIX Replicator for AS/400 and follow-the-sun support.

“Lakeview Technology’s new cluster middleware products supporting V4R4 Cluster Technology is another major step in our efforts to deliver the best high-availability solutions to our customers,” says Mike Tomashek, director of AS/400 System Software Development at IBM. “With MIMIX ClusterServer capabilities and ClusterProven for AS/400 applications, together we hope to deliver a solid framework for building solutions that meet tomorrow’s demands for 24X365.”
