Occasional system failure is one of the side effects of using computerized technology. Always unplanned, and possibly resulting in the loss of data or ongoing processing, system failures can be damaging to a laboratory's efficiency. With Dawning's Automatic Backup System (ABS) you can rest easy should this happen to you. This software application is designed to provide automatic fall-over to a backup JResultNet system in the event the primary system fails, enabling your lab to continue processing test requests without missing a beat.
The ABS Architecture
The ABS architecture consists of two PC's each with its own copy of JResultNet, running concurrently on a local area network with static TCP/IP addresses. The Backup system also contains the Backup Software that synchronizes configuration information with the Primary system and detects that the Primary is still active. Upon detection of a failure (defined as a configurable period of time when data is not received from the Primary) the Backup Software will start JResultNet on the Backup System, and transition all host and interface communication to the backup until normal operation can be restored. An email is automatically generated, alerting key personnel to the Primary system failure.
The transition requires a minimal amount of manual configuration on the host system.
2 PC's each meeting the minimum requirements to run JResultNet
JavaLins interfaces are preferred vs SNIs
2 copies JResultNet software. The primary copy and a backup copy,
both must be licensed. Backup software bundles are available that include both
JResultNet and the ABS Module in a single unit
Reduce or eliminate down-time resulting from PC failures
Automatic fall-over with minimal user intervention required
Modular addition to existing ResultNet software for customers with spare systems already on hand
Increases lab efficiency
Peace of mind
If any optional modules are installed on the Primary system, they must also be installed on the Backup system. Special modules are available for the Backup system at 50% of list price. Contact Dawning at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
