The Best Way to Keep Twinax
Is With a Pure TCP/IP Controller
most disaster recovery scenarios these days TCP/IP is the protocol of
choice for switching between machines. Most solutions to switch users from
the primary AS/400 to the back-up AS/400 require that the IP address under
which the AS/400 appears be changed. For example, say that the production
AS/400 has IP address 10.1.1.10, while the back-up AS/400 normally uses
10.1.1.20. In the event of a disaster, the back-up AS/400 switches to
10.1.1.10. All the PC users using TN5250 do not have to change their
settings; they simply restart their sessions and sign back on.
What Happens to Twinax Users?
the same scenario, Twinax users suffer a harsher plight. During disaster
recovery the local Twinax users can be left without any access to the
back-up AS/400. Remote Twinax users usually can be switched over using
some scripts on the AS/400, however is often a challenge.
Is There a Better Way?
Twinax controllers like the
I-O Corporation Xip+ Twinax
Controller and the
BOSaNOVA eTwinax Controller can easily switch between
AS/400?s because they treat Twinax users the same way they treat the PC
users, once the session is reset. Once the
Xip Controller is connected
to the back-up iSeries, the users can sign right back
What About Locally Attached Twinax Users?
locally attached Twinax users can work in this fashion, using the
Controller or the
eTwinax Controller series. These
controllers are designed to work in a local Twinax environment.
local Twinax cables connect to either of these
Twinax Controllers in place of the local
Twinax controller resident in the AS/400. The Twinax
connects over the Ethernet network to the Power8, Power7 or any model
with their integrated 10/100 MHz Ethernet
connections, ensuring fast response times.
You simply switch the Twinax Controller to the
