Key Automated Recovery Steps:
Key benefits of automated recovery
Minimize delay in failure detection and recovery process
The integrated solution continuously monitors health of key application and data resources and provides automated recovery within minutes of failure detection. The risks of delay such as timely availability of key personnel associated with manual recovery are virtually eliminated.
Minimize risk of operator errors in stressful disaster recovery situation
In disaster situations the personnel performing recovery actions often operate under great stress due to lack of time, infrastructure support, and harsh environmental conditions. In such situations, risk of operator errors such as skipping key recovery actions can actually further delay or prevent effective recovery. The integrated solution greatly reduces such risk by reliably performing the recovery actions in appropriate sequence and consistent manner.
Minimize needs for scarce specialists in order to perform full recovery
Manual solutions often require scarce personnel with specialized knowledge and skills to perform and verify recovery. Such solutions can become less effective and have higher risk of failure due to changes in personnel knowledge and skills over time. The integrated solution does not require specialists to operate or verify recovery making it less vulnerable to personnel knowledge and skill changes over time.
