New Webinar Will Show High Availability Is Imperative for Manufacturing

Vision Solutions' Executive Vice President and Chief Technology Officer Alan Arnold Will Join Sept. 25 Panel to Present Five Keys to Ensuring Information Availability for Manufacturing Companies

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwire - September 11, 2007) - Vision Solutions, the leading high availability (HA) solution provider in the IBM System i and System p markets, is sponsoring an upcoming Manufacturing Business Technology magazine Executive Broadcast seminar on the imperative of HA for manufacturing companies. The live webinar is also sponsored by IBM and will be held on Tuesday, September 25 at 1 p.m. EDT.

"Manufacturing companies of all sizes must have secure and pervasive access to all data relevant to their business, customers, and suppliers -- in essence, electronic collaboration that's available 24/7 is the rule for companies of any size," says Alan Arnold, CTO for Vision Solutions, and one of the presenters in the webinar. "For lean and innovative companies, the impact of systems downtime is more far-reaching and harmful than ever."

The informative event will highlight how high availability solutions ensure application failures don't interrupt users or disrupt business operations. Focused on continuous operations and quick, automated server failure recovery, they help manufacturers eliminate costly planned or unplanned downtime in plant production, supply chain collaboration, and customer management.

Industry Analyst Julie Fraser, Principal of Industry Directions, will also speak at the event and the moderator is Sidney Hill, Jr., executive editor of Manufacturing Business Technology (MBT). "Innovation and responsiveness are critical to manufacturers -- in their products, services, plant operations, supply chain, distribution and customer-facing activities," says Ms. Fraser. "Because business is complex, employees rely on application software to work which means technology must be available 24/7 to stay competitive."

To better understand the costly issues related to planned and unplanned system downtime and to learn how to evaluate HA as a justifiable component to backup and recovery strategies in manufacturing companies, be sure to tune in to the September 25 event.
