Disaster Recovery & High Availability

Blue Chip offers a wide range of shared and dedicated disaster recovery for IBM Z Mainframes, so you can find a solution that meets both your budget and the criticality of your recovery requirements.

We offer standard, leveraged disaster recovery (DR) services that are available as an independent service or in conjunction with Managed Mainframe Services (MMS).  Our standard services include facility, mainframe and storage hardware and software recovery options.  Unless otherwise specified, resources included within these standard DR services will be shared, which means they will be available on a first-come, first-served basis for testing and at time of disaster.  We supplement our DR solutions with a standard set of IT Service Continuity Management (ITSCM) services and optional application/data backup and restore services.
•  Core          

A cost-effective service that ensures the recovery of your business-critical, IBM Z mainframe systems at a cost in line with the risk.  Our specially trained personnel will ensure that you will have recovery hardware commissioned and a starter system loaded within 4 hours of disaster declaration.


•  Critical     

Your IBM Z mainframe environment will be recovered to one of Blue Chip’s business recovery centres by a team of business continuity and recovery experts, with assistance from the mainframe system and storage management organisations that support your production environment.  We offer either 24- or 48-hour system-level (OS and Interactive Software) recovery options.


•  Tolerant    

If you require recovery of their OS and Interactive systems in 24 hours or less, Blue Chip offers a standardised Disaster Tolerant solution using data replication solutions.  


We’ll work with you to understand your organisation’s unique recovery requirements, and if our standard suite of DR services don’t meet your needs, we can create a bespoke solution for you.
