AN61DG - IBM PowerHA Administration Fundamentals (Digital version)

This course is designed to prepare students to install and configure a highly available cluster using PowerHA SystemMirror. A high availability solution ensures that the failure of any component of the solution, be it hardware, software, or system management, does not cause the application and its data to be inaccessible to the user community.
