- Shadowbase® for the HP Converged Infrastructure
Converged Infrastructure (CI) is the heart of HP’s move to what it calls the Instant-On Enterprise. HP partner products that support CI are of paramount importance to achieving Instant-On. Critical to the success of this initiative is the participation of third party solution providers to create products that interoperate to offer virtualized assignment of resources, superior availability for mission-critical services, modernization of applications via application integration, and common management. Vendors whose solutions qualify as "CI-Ready" are certified by HP. The Shadowbase data replication engine has earned CI-Ready certification. Shadowbase solutions provide mission-critical applications with high and continuous availability with recovery from faults in seconds, and supply the mechanisms that effectively and efficiently integrate applications to rapidly build new capabilities for an enterprise.
- Shadowbase® Streams for Data Integration and Application Integration
The Shadowbase product suite from Gravic, Inc., distributes real-time critical data to applications throughout the enterprise. Uses for Shadowbase products include achieving high or continuous availability by synchronizing active or passive redundant systems, integrating applications, feeding data warehouse and real-time business intelligence facilities, and driving ETL (extract, transform, and load) utilities. Shadowbase Streams, a member of the Shadowbase software solutions set, streams data generated by one application to other applications and facilities. Shadowbase Streams for Application Integration provides the facilities for integrating existing applications at the data or event-driven level in order to create new and powerful functionality for the enterprise.
- Choosing a Business Continuity Solution to Match Your Business Availability Requirements
Business continuity encompasses those activities that an enterprise performs to maintain consistency and recoverability of its operations and services. The availability of application services provided by an enterprise’s IT infrastructure is only one of many facets of business continuity, albeit an extremely important one. Application availability depends upon the ability of IT services to survive any fault, whether it is a server failure, a network fault, or a data center disaster. An enabling technology for achieving high availability and even continuous availability for application services is data replication. Selecting the right data replication technology to achieve your business continuity goals is the focus of this white paper. We also summarize the Shadowbase suite of replication products from Gravic, Inc. Shadowbase software provides the full range of replication technologies to satisfy the most demanding IT availability requirements.

- Achieving Century Uptimes with Shadowbase® Active/Active Technology
How Shadowbase active/active system architecture provides disaster tolerance by maintaining a network of independent processing nodes, each having access to a common replicated database. This architecture eliminates the uncertainty and cost that exists with an active/backup approach; all nodes work and perform real work at all times. Case studies with Shadowbase solutions are included.
- The Evolution of Real-Time Business Intelligence (RTBI)
How the speed of today’s processing systems has moved classical data warehousing into the realm of real-time, or event-driven business intelligence. The RTBI system supports the classic strategic functions of data warehousing for deriving information and knowledge from past enterprise activity, and provides real-time tactical support to drive enterprise actions that react immediately to events as they occur. It replaces both the classical data warehouse and the enterprise application integration (EAI) functions. Case studies with Shadowbase solutions are included.
