Sungard Availability Services Launches AWS Recovery Solution
Wayne, Pa. – October 7, 2015 – Sungard Availability Services® (Sungard AS), a leading provider of information availability through managed IT, cloud and recovery services, today announced it is extending its recovery solutions on Amazon Web Services (AWS) to provide virtual recovery services on the AWS Cloud platform. With a Sungard AS tailored AWS solution, organizations can tap into a cost-effective, easy-to-implement recovery solution not just for AWS, but across their entire set of enterprise solutions.
The new Sungard AS AWS Recovery Solution allows Sungard AS to expand its offerings to provide backup, vaulting and recovery services into the AWS U.S. East and West Regions. Customers can be assured their data is replicated quickly and fully so that they will always have continuous access to applications to perform critical functions.
"Sungard AS delivers a range of recovery services that, when used in conjunction with cloud services, provide a resilient and scalable architecture," said Jack Dziak, Executive Vice President, Global Products, Sungard AS. "Now, specifically for AWS, customers can experience the full capabilities of Sungard AS – including operating system recovery, storage replication, off-site storage and automated recovery of protected workloads – as a fully managed, utility-priced service on AWS."
The Sungard AS solution combines tested and proven Sungard AS recovery products and services with AWS cloud-based storage. For decades, thousands of organizations have relied on Sungard AS for production and non-production alike. Now, instead of using their own on-premise disaster recovery site, customers can leverage AWS to execute recovery. Source data is protected from many different locations whether on AWS, co-located, in an on-premise environment or other cloud environments.
The Sungard AS AWS Recovery Solution is based on Actifio's unique set of technologies and services and proprietary orchestration integration with the Amazon Web Services platform. Actifio, the copy data virtualization company, applies patented technology and capabilities for AWS to allow service providers to reduce the time to market for new data services drastically. This also enables them to build new services without a large CapEx outlay.
Sungard AS provides robust replication across dedicated networks into AWS to help maintain system and data integrity. Sungard AS' reliable recovery solution leverages a cost efficient utility pricing model so that users only pay for recovery compute services when they need it most. Organizations can be confident they have a reliable recovery solution for the evolving needs of businesses that are shifting their internal operations and businesses to the cloud.
The new Sungard AS AWS Recovery Solution is available immediately in the AWS U.S. East and West Regions. Contact www.sungardas.com for more information. You can also visit Sungard AS at the AWS re:Invent conference, October 6 through 9 at the Venetian Resort in Las Vegas, Booth 938.
