How much data does your company generate in a given month? Or day? Or hour?
The information itself is important, of course, but what really matters is what you do with all that data — how it allows you to interact with your customers, collaborate to produce new product lines, and so on. The question then becomes, what happens if disaster strikes and suddenly that critical information isn’t there when you need it?
Data recovery is an essential component to the overall success of any business.
At Sungard Availability Services (Sungard AS), we have always been dedicated to the Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS) model, but we are excited about a new service we provide that makes the process even easier and more transparent: our new DRaaS portal.
The DRaaS portal removes the “black box” perception that has plagued disaster recovery for decades. You no longer have to wonder “are my servers in ‘good health’?” or “what are we paying for when we contract with a company for recovery services?”
For the DRaaS portal, we brought together multiple data prediction services into one single interface. At the end of the day, we wanted this interface to be seamless, regardless of the technologies that are used.
We are proud of the new DRaaS portal because we believe it will provide our customers with the transparency they desire. Through the portal’s platform-neutral, intuitive interface, you are able to see at a glance:
- Your current recovery point objectives (RPOs) by server
- Detailed information on individual volumes and storage capacities
- Any gaps in your protection environment
- The history of your daily data transfers
- The condition of your protected storage
