ReliableDR is VirtualSharp Software's flagship product which enables Virtual Data Centers (VDCs) to replace outdated or less than effective legacy DR processes with frequent and iterative DR testing of IT services. Unlike legacy DR tests, which are typically run once per year or at best quarterly, ReliableDR enables DR testing to be performed automatically, on a daily or hourly basis. Exit recovery point objectives, enter certified recovery points.
ReliableDR works by collaborating with the various physical and virtual infrastructure components (hypervisors, storage, replication, snapshots etc.) in order to orchestrate and establish coherent and dependency-aware IT Service recovery policies. These policies can be set by IT or business management and are enforced automatically, through a closed-loop mechanism, that rectifies configuration drift and identifies threats to recovery as soon as they occur.
IT Service Oriented
"VirtualSharp ReliableDR is unique. It has eliminated the need for manual DR testing and guarantees that our RPO and RTO for email and other business critical IT Services can always be met…whatever the scenario."
IT Systems and Operations Manager, Santalucia Insurance
ReliableDR is also fully application-aware and operates at the IT Service level, to test recovery in enclosed virtual containers. The certification cycle is aligned with business policy; tests can go from a cursory heartbeat check and a web page access for a minor service, to complex queries and heavy transactions for critical production applications. Upon successful conclusion of tests, ReliableDR certifies the recovery point and catalogs it.
