Continuity Software Partners with INFINIDAT to Deliver Enhanced Storage Availability and Efficiency
New York, NY –June 28, 2016 – Continuity Software™, the leading provider of IT Operations Analytics for infrastructure outage prevention announced today a partnership with INFINIDAT, a top tier enterprise data storage solution provider, to deliver enhanced storage availability and efficiency.
Continuity’s partnership with INFINIDAT enables organizations that have deployed INFINIDAT’s InfiniBox enterprise storage solution to integrate Continuity’s AvailabilityGuard software to perform ongoing IT infrastructure service and data loss risk detection, providing an additional layer of protection to INFINIDAT’s already-robust storage and data availability capabilities.
The performance and reliability of information systems has become critical to business, however organizations face challenges keeping their IT environments free of outages, data loss incidents, and service disruptions. Continuity Software helps organizations ensure their IT infrastructure is configured correctly to meet the organization’s service availability goals. Continuity’s AvailabilityGuard software automatically scans all layers of the infrastructure and analyzes it against a knowledge base of over 6,000 best practices and vendor recommendations. It detects configuration issues and single points of failure that can lead to service disruptions, alerting the appropriate team to take corrective action before they impact the business. AvailabilityGuard also allows organizations to identify and eliminate potential storage configuration vulnerabilities, improving operational efficiency and reducing the risk of downtime and data loss.
Benefits to customers include:
- Automated detection and mapping of InfiniBox storage arrays and their configuration;
- Automated detection of deviations from INFINIDAT best practices and vendor recommendations;
- Automated detection of any configuration conflicts with other layers of the infrastructure, including servers, databases, and virtualization;
- Automated analysis of replication and mirroring, including detection of partial replication, replication inconsistencies, and incorrect alignment; and
- Analysis of actual RPO metrics versus goals.
The INFINIDAT InfiniBox storage solution delivers advanced, high performance enterprise-class storage at a disruptive price point. InfiniBox offers mainframe-class reliability with an unprecedented 99.99999% availability, while delivering up to 1M IOPs of performance, microsecond latency, 12.5 GB/s of throughput and over 2.7 PB of usable storage capacity in a single 19-inch/42U rack. Reliability features include end-to-end data protection; triple redundant power and data paths; snapshots and replication; and hot swap upgrades. InfiniBox storage arrays are also extremely power-efficient, drawing a maximum of between 3-8KW at a full load. By providing multi-petabyte capacity in a single rack, along with continuous data protection and rich storage automation, INFINIDAT is changing the paradigm of storage efficiency and productivity while dramatically reducing operational overhead, complexity and cost. Customers experience an extremely low total cost of ownership.
