Continuity Software RecoverGuard Named Finalist for SearchStorage.com and Storage Magazine’s 2008 Storage Products of the Year Award

Disaster Recovery Management (DRM) Solution Finalist in Backup and Disaster Recovery Software Category

Boston, MA and Tel Aviv, Israel (February 4, 2009) – Continuity Software™, a leading provider of disaster recovery management (DRM) solutions, today announced that its RecoverGuard™ software version 3.0 (v3.0) has been named a finalist for the SearchStorage.com and Storage magazine 2008 Storage Products of the Year Award, in the Backup and Disaster Recovery Software category. The finalists, chosen by the industry’s leading analyst experts and the editors of SearchStorage.com and Storage magazine, were judged in the areas of innovation, performance, ease of integration, manageability and functionality.

“In today’s enterprise IT environment, the complexity and the number of stake holders involved in change management create a situation where the IT team cannot realistically meet its recovery time and recovery point objectives, or maintain visibility into their SLA. The production environment constantly changes, some changes ‘slip through’ and are not applied properly to the remote datacenter or localized DR solution, and once again the business is vulnerable to extended downtime, data loss or data corruption,” said Gil Hecht, Founder and CEO of Continuity Software. “RecoverGuard has solved this issue for our customers. Moreover, with the addition of host configuration gap detection, over 500 new gap signatures, integration with leading CMDBs and ticket management systems, as well as HDS platform support Continuity Software is demonstrating its unyielding commitment to delivering the greatest value and return on investment to customers by meeting both existing and emerging challenges.”

Hecht continued, “We are sincerely honored to be named a finalist, for the second year in a row, for one of the industry’s most prestigious recognitions – even more so to be included again among such recognized and respected industry leaders as this year’s finalists. We wish them each congratulations and the best of luck.”

RecoverGuard won the Silver Award in the SearchStorage.com and Storage magazine 2007 Storage Products of the Year Award, in the Backup and Disaster Recovery Software category.

 RecoverGuard v3.0 Enhancements

Host configuration gap detection – RecoverGuard v3.0 enables customers to properly prepare for DR tests and to maintain a recoverable environment by providing them with a tool that discovers and reports on one of the most common DR Testing challenges – host configuration gaps (i.e., hardware, operating system and network resources), in order to ensure recovery time objective (RTO), recovery point objective (RPO) and business continuity objectives are met. Gap coverage includes comparison of versions and path levels of applications, databases and operating systems. In addition, RecoverGuard v3.0 also seeks and identifies differences in hardware specification such as CPUs, memory, etc… between production and DR hosts.

Enhanced integration with leading configuration management databases (CMDBs) and ticket management systems – RecoverGuard v3.0 now easily and transparently integrates with BMC Remedy and HP OpenView, allowing customers to maintain one point of contact for monitoring and managing their environment. RecoverGuard v3.0 can now be configured to send specific tickets and reports to these systems as standard practice.

Hitachi Data Systems (HDS) platform support – in response to market demand, RecoverGuard v3.0 can now scan HDS TrueCopy solutions, as well as HDS HiCommand Application Server, Adaptable Modular Storage (AMS), Workgroup Modular Storage (WMS), Universal Storage Platform V (USP V) and Universal Storage Platform VM (USP VM). The enhancements ensure data protection and improved recoverability, along with optimization opportunities and best practices for these platforms.
