coverage, and
accelerate
DevOps adoption
with on-demand
application
environments.
Virtual Labs
• Educate and train
customers and
sales teams with
on-demand
virtual training
labs.
Demos and
POCs
• Rapidly create
functioning demos
and proofs of
concepts that
prospective
customers can
test drive without
IT support.
2024 trends in HA/DR in the cloud
• Cloud providers will invest
heavily in automating
disaster recovery
workflows.
• This includes automated
failover, failback, and
testing procedures,
minimizing human
intervention and ensuring
faster recovery times.
Focus on Automation and
Orchestration
• Organizations with
complex IT environments
will adopt multi-cloud or
hybrid cloud DR strategies.
• Replicating data and
applications across multiple
cloud providers or a
combination of on-
premises and cloud
infrastructure for added
redundancy and flexibility.
Multi-Cloud and Hybrid
Cloud DR Strategies
• Cloud providers will
prioritize robust security
features within their DR
offerings.
• Encryption of data at rest
and in transit, multi-factor
authentication, and
vulnerability management
tools to ensure data
security during disaster
recovery scenarios
Enhanced Security Measures
5
• We may see the use of
AI/ML for predictive
analytics within DR
• Enables proactive
identification of potential
issues, automated resource
scaling during peak
demand, and faster
recovery times through
intelligent decision-making
Rise of AI and Machine
Learning
• As data privacy regulations
continue to evolve, cloud
DR solutions will need to
adapt to meet stricter
compliance standards.
• Includes data residency
options and comprehensive
audit trails for recovery
processes.
Evolving Regulatory
Compliance Requirements
• Cloud providers will offer
more granular control and
flexible pricing options for
DR services.
• Businesses will pay only for
the resources they use and
optimize costs based on
their specific disaster
recovery needs
Growing Emphasis on Cost
Optimization
• Growing focus on disaster
prevention strategies.
• Includes proactive
infrastructure monitoring,
vulnerability management,
and comprehensive
security practices to
minimize the likelihood of a
disaster occurring in the
first place.
Focus on Disaster Prevention
6
2024 trends in HA/DR in the cloud
• Leverage the scalability,
cost-effectiveness, and
ease of deployment offered
by DRaaS solutions.
• Pre-configured disaster
recovery infrastructure in
the cloud, eliminating the
need for extensive upfront
investment and in-house
expertise
Increased Use of of Disaster
Recovery as a Service
Downtime is expensive
• Ironically, avoiding planned downtime for
necessary bug fixes and security updates results in
a greater risk of unplanned downtime
• On average, unplanned downtime costs 35%
more per minute than planned downtime**
• The cost per minute for small businesses lands
around $427 … for larger businesses, it'll be closer
to $9,000*
• The average revenue cost of an unplanned
application outage can exceed $500,000 per
hour for large enterprises in any sector
* SolarWinds Pingdom Blog – Average Cost of Downtime per Industry - 2023
** Forrester-The Real Costs Of Planned And Unplanned Downtime report – 2019
Cloud HA 101
Cloud Basics for Power Systems
Cloud Environments are Virtual Environments
• IBM i and AIX runs on virtual LPARs (a.k.a. VMs) configured
via cloud software consoles provided by the Cloud provider
• It is all about the LPAR, not the hardware!
• The LPAR will run on different hardware within the cloud
• Serial number may change, or Virtual Server Serial
Numbers (IBM i) may be in use
• Limited access to physical tape devices
• Limited access to hardware
• Performance fundamentals still matter!
• Cloud LPARS must have underlying processor, memory
and storage resources to support the application
processing requirements
SYS 1
LPAR A
SYS 2
LPAR B
Primary Backup
LPAR C
Cloud Environment Basics
Software Licensing needs to accommodate
cloud operating environments
• LPARs are Mobile within the cloud
• Physical Serial numbers will change
• Hardware features will change
• Capacity is the new licensing metric
Primary Backup

LPAR A
Sync-by-Wire
Physical Tape devices scarce in the cloud
• LPARs may be scratch loaded with an OS/TR/Cum level
• OS Maintenance is done by the user
• Full system restores take longer
• Shipping tape for restore operations may be impractical
• Start up the scratch installed LPAR and bring everything
over though the network!
HA/DR for IBM Power Systems
