IBM Grant

By trtjj ·
we are applying for an IBM grant. Our grant writer asked if I needed equipment or software. Do I ask for Tivoli software, such as Netview and config manager or IBM Total storage? What would you ask for?

re Grant

Depends on the size of your organisation and how many Technical Support Staff you have. ie

Ask for equipment and Software.

Always ask for more than you need as well and then it makes the budget look better rather than worse.

If you have a large organisation and require stringent DRP and 24 x 7 operation you may need to go for HACMP ( High Availablility Cluster Multi-Processing ). The downside of this is it can be complex and require maintenance.

Cheaper options using IBM AIX are using LVM ( Logical Volume Mirroring ) using a FASTt Storage Arrays ( which is simplier to implement and maintain ).
