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 push of a button. The ability to failover quickly and easily reduces downtime in the event of a disaster and when the time comes, significantly 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 totally agent-less and installs no VMs or any software whatsoever 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 the production systems.
CloudRecovery can be used to test if a planned data center migration can be carried out successfully, as well as perform the necessary data center migration. With CloudRecovery, it is also 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 using a Web browser which enables in-house IT staff and managed service providers to monitor the ability of business applications and IT services to recover remotely. The Web Dashboard also enables in-house IT staff and managed service providers to access customer centric reports of their recovery readiness and RPO/RTO SLA compliance over time. It also improves security as it removes the need to log in to the CloudRecovery server management console directly.
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 lower 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%.
