This IBMAr RedbooksAr publication presents an overview of the IBM Geographically Dispersed Parallel SysplexTM (IBM GDPSAr) offerings and the roles they play in delivering a business IT resilience solution.

These topics are considered within the framework of government regulation, increasing application and infrastructure complexity, and the competitive and rapidly changing modern business environment.

Also covered are the features that simplify and enhance data replication activities, the prerequisites for implementing each offering, and tips for planning for the future and immediate business requirements. Tables provide easy-to-use summaries and comparisons of the offerings, and the additional planning and implementation services available from IBM are explained. Then, several practical client scenarios and requirements are described, along with the most suitable GDPS solution for each case.

The subsequent chapters provide more technical details about the GDPS offerings, and each can be read independently for those readers who are interested in specific topics.
