DataGardens WAVE™ provides a next generation business continuity solution that protects your business processes not just from disasters–which occur only rarely–but also from all the most common causes of IT downtime.
In fact, the best measure of DataGardens’ value is the number of hours of IT downtime it eliminates. DataGardens WAVE™ also reduces your IT operational expenditures by streamlining business continuity planning and administration, by reducing network costs, and increasing the utility of IT infrastructure in a protection site. It can work before a disruption event occurs to evacuate live virtual machines from one site to another and allow them to continue operation (without transaction loss or re-boot). It can rollback data volumes and virtual machines–with processes still running–to a selected instant before data was corrupted or lost. And DataGardens WAVE™ can easily restore operations to a primary data center after a disruption event has been resolved.
Conventional disaster recovery solutions are designed to initiate controlled shutdown of surviving IT systems at a production site and perform scripted bring up of standby systems at a protection site. The fail-over procedures can be difficult to plan and test. After bring-up of the protection site, networking changes must be made to connect users with the newly activated failover systems. And, once business processes resume using infrastructure at the protection site, returning them to infrastructure in the original production site is no easy task. In fact, one of the worst things an administrator can do is a “press the big red button” and failover IT systems to a protection site accidentally.
Consequently, conventional disaster recovery solutions are only of value in cases of extreme emergency. DataGardens WAVE takes a different approach. DataGardens WAVE™ offers a full suite of business process protection (BPP) services that help administrators minimize all forms of downtime for critical business processes. After all, regardless of whether triggered by a true site-level disaster or by much more common events such as data corruption, software failure, or even routine datacenter maintenance, downtime still can result in serious losses to your business.
DataGardens provides flexible “real-time” protection at multiple levels: it can act at the level of individual computing resources, groups of related resources, or at the level of entire sites. Most importantly, DataGardens WAVE™ protects not just IT infrastructure, but also protects your active business processes.
DataGardens changes the way businesses protect their information technology systems and operations. DataGardens’ next generation business continuity solution provides revolutionary protection, preventing IT system disruptions and failures for both planned and unplanned downtime, all at a low total cost of ownership.
