Why Data Loss and Downtime HappenChallenge: Complexity and Lack of Visibility
As the complexity and scale of IT infrastructures grow, ensuring enterprise service availability is becoming increasingly difficult. In this day and age, managing service availability without visibility into downtime and data loss risks across the entire IT environment is like night flying without instruments.
How to Avoid Downtime and Data Loss across Your IT Environment
Cross-Domain Visibility and Control
AvailabilityGuard/Enterprise is the only solution that gives you complete visibility and control to manage enterprise service availability across all IT domains—from local and remote datacenters to disaster recovery systems, high availability clusters,Storage Area Networks, and private cloud environments.
The AvailabilityGuard dashboard allows you to visually grasp where availability risks exist and what impact they could have on your business, directing your attention to the area where action is needed.
Why Disaster Recovery Fails
Configuration Drift: The Greatest Threat to Business Continuity
Configuration drift — an inevitable condition in today’s constantly changing data center –occurs when production or primary infrastructure configurations “drift” or become different in some way from the recovery or replicated infrastructure. This creates serious configuration gaps which impact your Recovery Point Objectives (RPO) and Recovery Time Objectives (RTO).
How to Ensure Disaster Recovery
From Once-in-a-while Testing to Continuous Verification
You don’t need a crystal ball to know that something has changed in your infrastructure since your last disaster recovery test. In today’s dynamic IT environment, even the best DR test has a limited shelf life. But what if you could actually verify your DR readiness every day? Automated daily verification performed by AvailabilityGuard/DR gives you the confidence that your systems will remain operational and your data can be recovered today, tomorrow, and every day from now on—with no additional effort on your part!
Ensure RTO and RPO Compliance
Stay on Top of Your Business Continuity Goals with a Risk Assessment Dashboard
Complete up-to-date visibility to potential RPO and SLA violation risks gives you unprecedented control over your disaster recovery readiness. But daily DR verification doesn’t mean you have to spend a lot of time monitoring and evaluating test results. The AvailabilityGuard/DR dashboard allows you to visually grasp where availability risks exist and what impact they could have on your business, commanding your attention when action is needed.
Why High Availability Fails?
Configuration Drift: The Greatest Threat to Service Availability.
Configuration drift — an inevitable condition in today’s constantly changing data center — occurs when production or primary infrastructure configurations “drift” or become different in some way from the recovery or replicated infrastructure. Not surprisingly, configuration drift is the primary reason High Availability (HA) systems fail, exposing businesses to extended downtime and possible data loss. While a single configuration gap can severely impact service availability and resiliency, these inconsistencies often remain hidden until it is too late.
How to Ensure High Availability
From Periodic Testing to Continuous Monitoring
AvailabilityGuard/Cluster takes your High Availability testing to a new level by continually validating the configuration of your high availability cluster environment and alerting you when problems exist so you can fix them before they impact operations.
Uncover Hidden Downtime Risks
The AvailabilityGuard/Cluster software automatically scans your entire High Availability environment for configuration disconnects and vulnerabilities which can impact service availability, ensuring that your infrastructure is always aligned with your business protection and availability goals.
Operating in read-only mode, AvailabilityGuard/Cluster automatically scans and analyzes storage, databases, servers, clusters and replication configurations for vulnerabilities such as cluster settings, hardware and software discrepancies, unprotected databases or partitions, and data that cannot be recovered to a consistent restore point.
Ensure Effective Use of your IT Investment
Protect and Maximize Your Investment in DR, HA, and Replication Solutions.
Organizations spend millions of dollars on disaster recovery, high availability, and replication solutions to ensure that critical business applications can function and their data is replicated and available remotely in the event of disaster.
We help you ensure that these investments will perform as expected by providing insight into any business continuity risks that exist across your IT infrastructure—information you simply can’t get any other way.
While some vendors provide monitoring capabilities for their specific solutions, the typical datacenter is a multi-vendor, multi-domain environment. AvailabilityGuard covers your entire infrastructure, providing a single point of control over your business continuity readiness across physical, virtual, and hybrid environments.
