Failover and Failback
Convergia’s CloudRecovery enables the failover and failback of servers, applications and IT services between the primary and secondary sites at the mere push of a button. The ability to failover quickly and easily reduces downtime in the event of a disaster. In addition, it greatly reduces the level of complexity and time required to restore systems back to the primary data center.
DR Assurance and the Production Site
Convergia’s CloudRecovery is completely agent-less, with no VMs or any software installed on the production site. When using hardware replications, it does not affect production performance or stability in any way, requires no DR windows, and introduces no risk to production systems.
CloudRecovery can test whether a planned data center migration can be successfully completed, and can perform the data center migration as well. CloudRecovery makes it possible to stage migrations so that each IT service can be DR tested in the target site and then failover can occur individually.
The Recovery Dashboard can be accessed remotely via a Web browser; this allows in-house IT personnel and service providers to monitor the ability of business applications and IT services to recover remotely. The Web Dashboard also allows in-house IT staff and managed service providers to access customer centric reports of their recovery readiness and RPO/RTO SLA compliance. Security is also improved, as it removes the need to directly log in to the CloudRecovery server management console.
NetApp is used for CloudRecovery and offers IT efficiency, business agility and simplified management to our facilities. NetApp’s SAN solutions increase storage efficiency, simplify management across heterogeneous environments, and reduce your TCO. This reduces backup time, improving data recovery and cutting infrastructure and administrative costs. Backups transfer only new or changed blocks to shrink backup windows, minimize network traffic and reduce disk capacity requirements by 90%.
