AvailabilityGuard/Enterprise™ is a complete Service Availability Management solution (SAM), providing IT organizations with comprehensive command and control capabilities to manage service availability and business continuity readiness across their entire IT infrastructure.
Used by leading enterprises worldwide, AvailabilityGuard/Enterprise™ serves as a common platform for all relevant IT teams to collaboratively and proactively correct critical vulnerabilities before they impact business operations.
- Detect downtime and data loss risks across your entire IT infrastructure.
- Alert the appropriate teams and enables them to collaborate on a solution.
- Correct configuration issues and other vulnerabilities before they impact your business.
Proactive Risk Detection
The AvailabilityGuard Risk Discovery Engine™ automatically scans your IT infrastructure in a non-intrusive, read-only mode, collecting up-to-date configuration information from servers and clusters, storage devices, virtual infrastructure, database servers, and the networks that connect them across physical, virtual, and hybrid environments.
It then analyzes the information gathered against the continuously updated Risk Signature Knowledgebase™ and pinpoints any misconfigurations that can lead to potential downtime and data loss.
The AvailabilityGuard Dashboard
The AvailabilityGuard dashboard provides immediate visibility into availability and data loss risks throughout your entire IT infrastructure and their potential impact on critical business services. From the dashboard, you are just a click away from detailed information on any issue.
Automated Alerts and Notifications
Automated notifications and alerts are sent to the appropriate resources when availability or data loss risks are uncovered, allowing your IT teams to proactively address issues rather than firefight outages and costly business disruptions.
To ensure issues are tracked to resolution, AvailabilityGuard automatically creates an actionable trouble ticket, including a detailed description of the problem, its potential business impact, and suggestions for remediation. Trouble tickets can be also generated in your existing IT management system (e.g. HP OpenView, CA Unicenter, Tivoli).
“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”
We were able to identify the possible risks in our current IT operations strategy, making it easier for us to anticipate them and establish proactive measures prior to contingency tests and simulations.
