Mirrored SCO Server

By opuskrocus ·
I have a SCO Unix 5.7.0 Server that is very important to our company. I need a way to either mirror the entire server or atleast the data to a hot stand by server. My company can't afford any down time or loss of data. As it stands I'm running twice a day backups to a hot swappable hard drive. Is there something built in or is there software I can purchase to accomplish this. Forgive my ignorance, I'm a Windows guy with a little bit of Unix experience. Thanks in advance.

I think you mean SCO OpenServer 5.0.7 and you want to mirror to another server. ReliantHA is for UnixWare. You need SavWareHA available from SCO Unix resellers. This is easy to install in an active - passive configuration and will provide the redundancy you want.
