Active Ingredient - Companies looking to implement High Availability for the IBM Power Systems i or have implemented but never failed over to a second system.
How to Use - Select an HA Product suitable to your Company needs
Side Effects - Someone in your company has decided upon / prescribed an HA Solution for your IBM Power System i (AS/400, iSeries) because he or she has judged that the benefit to your company is greater than the risk of side effects.
