SSA seeks data recovery software

The Social Security Administration is seeking information about disaster recovery software for the IBM zSeries mainframe.

“The software product needs to minimize data loss and service outage time in the event of a disaster by logging database system update information in real time at another site,” according to a notice the agency published today.

“The product should also duplicate log or journal data and other recovery information at an alternate site and use that data to recover databases to within seconds of the disaster,” the notice states.

In addition to collecting data and recovery information as it is created by an IBM zSeries mainframe, the recovery software must handle temporary communications outages by saving the data to a different file. It must also be capable of automatically recovering data from a sending or receiving site.

SSA is seeking information on the type and cost of such products within the next 15 days.
