Participation in the program will enable Recovery Assurance to fortify its ability to ensure its clients detect and eliminate all threats to data availability and disaster recovery (DR) capabilities, well before business impact.
“Millions of rands are spent each year in South Africa on high availability and disaster recovery programs. Yet, the majority of the business organizations and government institutions that are making these huge investments still experience some level of down-time and/or data loss – many times leading to financial damage and injured reputation,” said Malcolm Clark, Managing Director, Recovery Assurance. “Not only does Continuity Software’s AvailabilityGuard deliver one the most advanced and proven HA/DR solutions available on the market today, it also provides a choice of deployment options. This flexibility provides our customers with the ability to meet both their IT and budgetary requirements.” Clark continued, “Indeed, AvailabilityGuard has been met with high praise by current customers, as well as served as an entry for us into new customer environments.” AvailabilityGuard software detects all potential downtime and data loss threats across the entire IT infrastructure, alerts the appropriate personnel, and offers suggested remedies, thereby enabling IT organizations to correct configuration issues and other vulnerabilities long before business impact. It can be delivered as a fully integrated end-to-end solution for ensuring service availability management (SAM) across the entire datacenter and into the cloud. Or, it can be deployed as an individual point solution to ensure specific functions, such as disaster recovery (DR) or high availability (HA), and/or storage area network (SAN) HA/DR or private cloud HA/DR assurance.
