DR Assurance Service

DR Assurance Service

The only constant in your production/DR environment is change.

While a single configuration error can derail a recovery, these vulnerabilities often remain hidden until it is too late. With the DR & HA Assurance Service, our experts use our AvailabilityGuard technology to monitor your environment for hidden vulnerabilities, analyze the potential impact of the findings, alert you to the problem and provide detailed instructions for how to correct it. All while you focus on other business-critical projects.

DR tests are risky, expensive, infrequent, and often unreliable.

DR tests should be performed after each configuration change. In reality, companies just don’t have the time or resources to execute full, by-the-book DR tests. Plus, the moment a change is made to the infrastructure, the test results may be invalid. The DR & HA Assurance Service validates your DR readiness at all times.

Home-grown solutions are not complete.

It is impossible for busy IT organizations to stay up-to-date with industry best practices, shifting recoverability threats, data protection vulnerabilities, and other issues that pose a risk to business continuity and availability.
With Continuity’s Assurance Service, you’ll have access to the leading DR experts, cutting-edge technology and a gap knowledge base of over 5000 known (and growing daily) DR risks.

Protecting your data is our priority.

Continuity Software is committed to ensuring that your data is protected and your business continuity is assured. Financial institutions, telecom operators, utilities companies, government and military installations, and many other organizations rely on our technology and expertise to ensure availability and readiness, and we won’t let them down.

Protect and maximize your investment in DR and replication solutions.

Organizations spend millions of dollars on DR and replication solutions to ensure their data is replicated and available remotely in the event of disaster.  We help you ensure that these investments will perform as expected by giving you a level of insight into your environment you can’t get any other way.

An Overview of the DR & HA Assurance Service

Your DR & HA Assurance Service begins with the seamless integration of AvailabilityGuard into your IT infrastructure. The software operates in a non-intrusive, read-only mode. Within the first day of deployment:

  • AvailabilityGuard begins scanning your storage, databases, servers, and replication configurations for risks.
  • Automatic analysis tools and our powerful Gap Detection Engine identify vulnerabilities such as unprotected databases or database partitions, noncompliant replication configurations, data that cannot be recovered to a valid consistency point, and much more.
  • Daily statistics are sent to Continuity Software’s experts for review and analysis. No business or confidential data is ever touched or sent outside of your organization.
  • When a problem is detected, our experts will alert you with details regarding the severity of the problem and how to resolve it.
  • Weekly, monthly, and quarterly reports are provided. These reports contain executive summaries of the findings as well as in-depth details on issues uncovered and suggested resolutions, making them useful for both Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery professionals.

The proactive monitoring approach used by the DR & HA Assurance Service eliminates the inefficient manual testing and DR audits that consume IT resources yet fail to uncover many critical risks, data protection breaches, and recoverability gaps.  As an added benefit, this service gives you the ability to continually improve your DR best practices and your IT change management methodologies.
