Shield RE4i 01

Shield Advanced Solutions, leading providers of High Availability software, today added a new solution to their product suite. RE4i — Object Distribution for IBM i. RE4i provides the ability to distribute objects across IBM i systems installed in your network. It allows objects to be saved and restored onto remote systems, that have RE4i running, using a single command. This handy object distribution tool will save time and money and simplifies multi system environment management. Relying on RE4i avoids the need for time consuming, save FTP and restore, to distribute objects across systems. Neat features allow you to distribute fixes, distribute save files and more. Security is maintained through using the same user profile on both systems.
The product is packaged as a LPP and managed using IBM license repository to simplify installation and product management. Pricing for RE4i is $500 US per install.

– Fully automated object replication
– Easy installation and configuration
– Save and restore with single command
– Same user profile on each system ensures security
– Remote command capabilities
“As part of our daily support we often find ourselves amidst time consuming projects, so we originally developed this for internal use. If you are tired of spending time saving to Save Files then FTPing the Save Files to remote systems before restoring the content, then RE4i is for you.” explains Chris Hird, president of Shield Advanced Solutions. “Shield is well known for listening to our customers and, whenever practical, we add new features and functionality to meet their demands, improving their IBM I experience with our products.”
RE4i uses similar replication processes as our HA4i and DR4i products.
