Faster disaster recovery in IBM Business Process Manager
This article describes an infrastructure topology for IBM® Business Process Manager that includes elements that reside in distinct data centers that may be geographically separated from each other. Such a topology can be useful in achieving disaster recovery objectives in certain circumstances, especially when recovery times faster those offered by traditional approaches are desired. Additionally, the strategy described in this paper uses Oracle®'s Data Base File System (DBFS) to enable the database manager to control replication of the WebSphere® transaction and compensation logs, as well as traditional IBM BPM database content. This content is part of the IBM Business Process Management Journal.
Because business process management plays a very important role in an enterprise architecture, it's critical to make sure that BPM is an integral part of any enterprise disaster recovery plan. This article introduces a disaster recovery strategy for customers who are using Oracle® Data Guard for disaster recovery on existing systems and want to extend it to include IBM® Business Process Manager.
Asynchronous replication of WebSphere Process Server and WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus for disaster recovery environments
This article describes an environment that is based on using a disk replication system in asynchronous mode. You can include this environment in a disaster recovery plan that includes a secondary data center using IBM WebSphere Process Server or WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus.
Few things are more stressful and frustrating than an unplanned outage. This is especially true when the unplanned outage is the deployment manager of a large Network Deployment cell. This article walks through examples of some features available in IBM® WebSphere® Application Server Network Deployment to help you prepare for an easy recovery from such an outage.
IBM® WebSphere® Application Server Network Deployment provides for failover and recovery of application workload, but how do you provide for failover of the management workload in a Network Deployment cell? The WebSphere Contrarian explains the steps you need to take to achieve this, whether you're using WebSphere Application Server V6.x or V7.0. This content is part of the IBM WebSphere Developer Technical Journal.
How to resolve Transaction- and Partnerlog recovery issues in WebSphere Process Server (WPS) and IBM Business Process Manager (BPM)
WebSphere Process Server or IBM Business Process Manager does not start (completely) due to Transaction- and Partnerlog recovery issues. How do you resolve the issues and get the server up and running again?
Storing transaction and compensation logs in a relational database for high availability and disaster recovery in IBM Business Process Manager
Learn how to leverage the latest WebSphere® Application Server feature by configuring an IBM® Business Process Manager transaction and compensation logs into a relational database for high availability and disaster recovery purposes. This content is part of the IBM Business Process Management Journal.
This article explains an important task in WebSphere® Process Server administration - restoring the deployment manager after a non-recoverable crash.
This is an aside from my normal BPM/WAS HA reading, but something with which I'm playing - on the side :-)
