The Greater Vancouver Area, home to BCIT's main campuses, is in an earthquake zone. Consequently, business continuity concerns are critical to this institution. Obviously, protecting the availability of critical data and the applications that manage them is a major component of BCIT's disaster recovery plans. BCIT wanted a disaster recovery solution that would work solely within a single environment, namely AIX. Some of the disaster recovery alternatives that the institution considered copied data to other platforms. EchoStream replicate all critical data from an IBM Power 570 AIX server located in the main data center in Burnaby to an IBM Power 550 AIX server at BCIT's downtown Vancouver campus.
