Unless you've been hanging out on the MQ Community, it's possible that you might have missed the new High Availability feature that we have made available in the Cloud Pak for Integration. We snuck an early release into v2021.1.1 to give you a chance to try it out, but following our latest IBM MQ Continuous Delivery release (9.2.3), you can now try the full feature in 2021.2.1! If you already have 2021.2.1 or are planning on upgrading to it, just visit the entitled registry.

Why create another High Availability option for MQ?
We saw that RDQM was liked because of the quorum approach, but that doesn't work so well when you consider containers. So, we looked into how we could create something that met the quorum requirement and that could be used with containers. Introducing...Native HA!

Where can I find out more?
Our MQ architect, David Ware, published an excellent article back in March. It contains a lot of good information, including links to a variety of resources. I invite you to take a look!
