We have 25 LPARs of which 8 are development/sys test. These are on a good size 740 (terabytes of DASD). We run HA (MIMIX) for our production LPARs.
My question is does anyone run a full HA environment for their development? With all of the redundant hardware, software costs, MIMIX licenses, bandwidth, and overhead of supporting more partitions I just can't see how it is justified. We are a manufacturing company.
