It all started very quietly: a couple of people wanted to be able to read emails on their newly owned tablet or smartphone, just as they were told it was possible when receiving the device as a Christmas present. As they were all, of course, VPs and their direct reports, you kindly obliged and setup an IBM Notes Traveler server. Just a peripheral service for a couple of users, or so you thought at the time.
That was then. By now, it is servicing several hundred users, everybody loves it, the activity of the whole company depends on it, and when it is down, you get angry calls faster than when the mail server is down. From all the VIPs, of course...
Sounds familiar ? So it does for many of our customers. Access to emails, calendar and contacts via smartphones has become, want it or not, a key service, which the IT department must provide on a continuous basis.
And so, redundancy has now become "de rigueur". Can it be applied to IBM Notes Traveler ? Certainly yes ! It's called Traveler High Availability, or Traveler HA, and it is available from version 8.5.3 up 1, or version 9. How does it work ? Within a pool of Traveler servers, when one fails, users automatically fail over to the other servers to access emails from their smartphones.
Is it difficult to deploy ? Not really. EASI can help ! We have all the tools and know how necessary to help you implement an IBM Notes Traveler HA solution, be it on premises, on virtual machines, or even in the cloud. Do not hesitate to contact us for advises !
