The one highlight of IBM’s Tuesday announcement yesterday was Mimix, a hot standby facility for AS/400 and System 38, which is not from IBM but was picked up from Lakeview Technology Inc, Peekskill, New York. Mimix is designed to provide hot-standby working by constantly maintaining an exact copy of the main system database or nominated application files on a second system. The secondary database can be accessed in read-only fashion so that queries, reports and printing can be offloaded onto the second system – as can the taking of back-ups. It needs a 4Mb, 630Mb disk AS/400 or 2Mb, 400Mb disk 38, and is a one-time $26,000 on any 38, $15,000 on AS/400 B10, 20, $26,000 on B30 to 45, $37,000 on all the rest, now.
