High availability for your business

Sterling Global Mailbox helps companies address demands for high availability operations and redundancy with a robust and reliable data storage solution available across geographically distributed locations.  The solution supports active-active communications for disruption resiliency and disaster recovery in near real-time. 

Global Mailbox is available for IBM Sterling B2B Integrator and IBM Sterling File Gateway and designed to work with IBM Sterling Control Center.

Companies need to exchange a variety of business files and documents across a wide variety of use cases – and do so in real-time. These demands put enormous pressure on IT departments to architect a B2B integration platform that is highly-available and can execute just-in-time exchange of critical business information and documents.

Complicating this issue is the fact that many companies operate regionally disperse data centers for both performance and disaster recovery purposes. Companies go to great lengths and expense to ensure 24x7x365 availability, often deploying redundant software and hardware. IBM recognizes the challenge companies encounter trying to meet the demands of high-availability operations – and prepare for any potential disruption or disaster recovery.

To help companies meet these challenges, IBM Sterling Global Mailbox is an optional component of its IBM Sterling B2B Integrator and IBM Sterling File Gateway solutions. This high-availability mailbox capability enables geographical distribution and data replication capabilities that leverage active/active communications. Sterling Global Mailbox makes use of functionality built into other IBM Sterling B2B Collaboration portfolio architectures, as well as other technologies, to deliver a high-availability solution across multiple data centers.

Key highlights

Using IBM Sterling Global Mailbox, companies that operate regional data centers for customer service and performance purposes can now design and deploy a high-availability architecture. Sterling Global Mailbox provides data storage across geographically distributed locations. Data is regularly routed to the nearest available regional data center and then replicated across centers in near real-time. Enabled applications can listen for mailbox events to trigger application- level actions, such as initiating further processing. Companies looking to deploy IBM Sterling Global Mailbox can leverage the solution to:

  • Enables always on operations
  • Disaster resiliency and recovery
  • Easy to use and intuitive UI
  • Configurable geographic distribution
