RecoverGuard Software Helps Customers Manage Data Protection SLAs and Identify Data Protection Gaps – Long Before Disaster Strikes
Boston, MA and Tel Aviv, Israel (February 25, 2008) – Continuity Software™, a leading provider of Disaster Recovery Management (DRM) solutions, today announced that it will showcase its award winning RecoverGuard™ software and DR Assurance™ service at the upcoming Gartner Business Continuity Management Summit, taking place March 5 – 7, 2008 at the Sheraton Chicago Hotel & Towers, Chicago, Illinois, in Booth R.
During the event, Continuity Software will show how its RecoverGuard software provides a heightened level of insight into data protection and disaster recovery (DR) environments that is unmatched in the industry. It will highlight RecoverGuard’s industry unique feature set – including its patent pending Business Service Recoverability Status, Data Dependency Analysis, Data Protection SLA Management, Gap Detection and Optimization Engines, as well as its newest Interactive Dashboard and Recoverability Threat Landscape. Continuity Software will also demonstrate how its newly announced DR Assurance Service combines the powerful capabilities of RecoverGuard software with the expertise of its DR Specialists Team, providing customers with the ability to virtually “set and forget” yet still ensure production and DR site data is always protected and highly available.
According to Gartner, most organizations are not prepared for a business outage. “The fact that most organizations plan for an outage that lasts up to seven days indicates a huge hole in those organizations’ ability to sustain business operations if a regional disaster strikes,” said Roberta Witty, Research Vice President at Gartner. “The impact of a disaster that lasts more than one week can have enormous negative impact on revenue, reputation and brand. Regional incidents, terrorism, service provider outages and pandemics can easily last longer than seven days. Therefore, enterprises must be prepared.”(1)
“Typically, organizations test their DR once or twice a year. It is an incredibly time-intensive and expensive endeavor that always uncovers issues that will impact recoverability. The problems are fixed, however within days a simple change will occur that is not implemented appropriately at the remote site, and once again, the company is in a position of not being adequately prepared for a disaster,” said Avi Stone, Director of Marketing, Continuity Software. “We look forward to the opportunity to demonstrate how our solutions help customers to mitigate such risk by detecting data protection gaps between their primary production and DR sites – long before disaster strikes. While other solutions focus on specific aspects of DR, or specific technologies, only RecoverGuard provides the continuous monitoring and reporting, as well as in-depth level of business continuity understanding across all the infrastructure layers – all the way from disk spindles, storage arrays and replication mechanisms through servers, operating systems, virtualization layers, volume management, file systems and databases.”
