The C-Suite Guide to Maximizing Availability
Critical questions that will help you develop the best IT Recovery Plans
Systems and Data Recovery
For a full and successful recovery, you need to do more than backup your data. You also need to protect your servers. That is a challenge, since purchasing and maintaining a second copy of all your physical equipment is a costly and complex endeavor. Everything from power to patching needs to be addressed – not just once, but on an ongoing basis.
Sungard Availability Services (Sungard AS) removes the capital expense and resource drain associated with establishing a constantly up-to-date copy of your servers. Through our Physical IT Recovery Service, we will maintain a secondary, dedicated infrastructure for you. This is ideal for platforms which cannot be virtualized to take advantage of cloud-based recovery, or for applications or operating systems that don't work on virtualized machines.
With Sungard AS Physical IT Recovery, we dedicate physical servers to your business. Whether you need traditional x86 Intel boxes, Solaris boxes, HP-UX boxes, IBM iSeries, mainframe zSeries, DEC Alpha, or Tandem servers, we set aside exactly what you require. All the servers are configured according to your needs. We then make these servers available to you the instant you declare a disaster. Plus, we ensure that you have the storage, network, compute, and backup media necessary to effect a full recovery.
Sungard AS has an unmatched record of disaster recovery: For over three decades, we have recovered thousands of outages swiftly, efficiently and cost-effectively. We're recognized as a leader in Gartner's Disaster Recovery as a Service Magic Quadrant, and IDC's Disaster Recovery as a Service MarketScape.
