PHD Recovery Management Suite
The integrated solution to guarantee recovery
I’ve reviewed PHD Virtual’s products in the past and recently they released their Recovery Management Suite. A product that bundles all their products together to create an extremely powerful unified data protection and recovery solution.
The product combines:
- PHD Virtual Backup
- PHD Virtual Cloudhook
- PHD Viirtual ReliableDR
PHD Virtual Backup makes virtual machine backup and recovery incredibly easy. Unlike other solutions that often require additional servers, software and hardware for their backup applications, PHD Virtual Backup is delivered as an all in one software based virtual backup appliance solution with integrated management through VMware vCenter.
CloudHook is a new module since PHD Virtual Backup 6.2 released. PHD Virtual CloudHook lets you choose the cloud backup option that’s best for you. CloudHook enables a PHD VBA to backup directly to cloud storage at Google Cloud Storage, Amazon S3, Rackspace Cloud Files or any cloud provider that supports OpenStack/swift. And coming later this year, you’ll be able to choose PHD Virtual cloud archiving and disaster recovery services.
PHD already provide a virtual backup, replication and recovery products and with the addition of ReliableDR they have added application-aware disaster recovery assurance into their portfolio. This addition means that PHD can offer a solution that not only focuses on the ability to restore data, but also makes sure that this can be done within RPO and RTO limits. Something that is very important to all businesses DR plans.
Features of Recovery Management Suite include:
- Automated, Continuous, Service-Oriented DR Testing
- Application-Aware Testing including Recovery Time Actual measurement (RTOs & RPOs)
- Compliance Reporting and Enforcement – demonstrates DR objective compliance to auditors
- Certified Recovery Points – automatically store multiple certified recovery points
- Test, Failover, and Failback – Automation of failover and failback processes
- Fully integrated, hardware agnostic data protection and assured recovery
Data and application recovery is still a risky business, especially complex application failover and failback restore processes. And most of the companies out there are still not aware of the certainty they have when it comes to backup and recovery. Todays recovery isn't just restore files or folders anymore. It is much more. In today's virtual environments the question often pop-ups is, what needs to be recovered? Are we talking about object, virtual disks, virtual machines or a complete site failover. Again you can ask yourself if there's enough certainty to restore these services.
You need to take away the obstacles like infrequent recovery testing. Every day your infrastructure changes, so is your backup and recovery procedure. With strong RPO/RTO company policies set you probably struggle to prove recovery SLA's. Somehow these requirements require knowledge and often too many IT personal which make it unreasonable expensive.
The multi Hypervisor PHD Recovery Management Suite helps you overcome these natural weaknesses and provide a fully automated recovery testing, fully automate manual tasks, provides compliancy reports, certifies RPO/RTO SLA's and above all, lower costs and eliminates complexity.
