Highlights of ReliableDR

Automated Application-Specific Testing
ReliableDR fully automates disaster-recovery testing, including the ability to test complex interdependent n-tier applications and IT services out of the box, such as Exchange, SQL, SharePoint, Oracle Database and more. Testing is non-disruptive to production since it is run in an isolated Sandbox on the DR Site. 
Automated Orchestration & Testing for vSphere, Hyper-V & Windows Physical
Automate not only backup but also recovery for your VMware vSphere, Microsoft Hyper-V, and Windows Physical applications, and certify their recovery will meet SLAs.
Certified Recovery Points
ReliableDR creates Certified Recovery Points (CRP), fully-tested applications or IT service recovery points that meet corporate governance, RPO/RTO metrics and are verified to operate correctly.  Allowing each application to be certified for recovery, matching the exact SLA requirements specified by the corporate Business Continuity Policy.  Protect your DR setup from configuration drift and accidental changes.  
Easy RPO/RTO Enforcement
Instead of testing once a year at great expense, with ReliableDR, schedule automated testing based on the organization’s RPO needs, minutes, hourly, daily or weekly, while measuring exactly how long it takes the application or service to recover, enforcing recovery time objectives (RTO) as well.  Multiple applications with different RPO/RTO requirements can be automatically tested based on their specific RPO schedule, insuring RTO enforcement. Providing 100% proof that each application and service matches corporate recovery, compliance and audit policies.
Guaranteed Recovery Assurance
Unitrends provides the only recovery solution for VMWare and Hyper-V virtual environments that dramatically reduces the cost Disaster Recovery testing and recovery.  With ReliableDR you get the peace of mind that mission-critical n-tier applications are protected and will always recover as required
Pushbutton Failover/Failback
ReliableDR assures recovery in minutes with pushbutton failover to a known certified recovery point that is consistent and fully recoverable in the DR site.  When the production site is operational, failback is immediate with the push of a button, to insure validity of the applications in production, ReliableDR automatically test the failback to insure it is operating correctly. 
Real-Time Reporting
ReliableDR’s Web-based dashboard provides an at-a-glance overview of each application or service RPO and RTO compliance status, allowing immediate detection of compliance deviations in real-time as well as detailed compliance and audit reporting. 
On-Premise and in the Cloud
ReliableDR automates DR testing for VMWare, Hyper-V, and Windows Physical applications and business services. Use ReliableDR on-premise with your Unitrends backup apliance, and extend automated DR testing to the cloud by pairing ReliableDR with Unitrends Disaster Recovery Services (DRaaS).

Features of REliableDR

Assured Recovery
Application Centric, Automated Recovery—ReliableDR orchestrates storage hardware, hypervisor, and server resources for VMware vSphere, Microsoft Hyper-V, and Windows Physical applications and services. ReliableDR configures recovery in real-time, replicating the exact configuration of the VM or server in the production system to the DR Site. If the primary site VM or server changes, the change is reflected immediately in the DR site. The ReliableDR orchestration also produces certified recovery points on the DR site, allowing each application to be certified for recovery in a controlled and configured sequence.
 
Automates Failover and Recovery Verification—Automatically produces Certified Recovery Points from Unitrends No-Limits Cloud or Unitrends Forever Cloud data, based on application RPO requirements (minutes, hourly, daily or weekly). Allowing each application to certify for RTO enforcement and recovery in an isolated Sandbox, validating certified recovery points for immediate failover. Multiple certified recovery points can be stored to protect against any VM configuration drift or data corruption that can be replicated to the DR site, always assuring automatic failover to a fully tested, certified recovery point.
 
Aligns Corporate Business Continuity Policy and DR—ReliableDR simulates failover scenarios as often as required, certifies that recovery points are ready to use in the event of a disaster or major disruption and automates the failover process to the point where service is restored in the DR Site. 
 
End-to-End Assurance—Integrated as an add-on with Unitrends Recovery-Series Appliances or Unitrends Enterprise Backup, ReliableDR benefits from advanced WAN optimization data transfer, secure government grade encryption of data in flight and at rest and immediate failover operation in the Unitrends Cloud in the event of disaster or major disruption. Storage agnostic replication that can scale to large environments is also supported. This variety in replication techniques provides IT with more choices to comply with Business Continuity RPO and RTO requirements.
 
Recovery Time Acceleration—ReliableDR can configure, mount and start certified recovery points very quickly, usually in minutes, enabling multiple IT services to be restarted in parallel while respecting interdependencies through flow control logic that enforces boot order priorities, significantly reducing Recovery times.
 
Guaranteed Proof—ReliableDR provides continuous proof that IT services and n-tier complex applications are fully recoverable, with automated DR failover, failback and testing to meet the Service Level Agreements (SLA) contracted with the line of business and application owners.
Automated, Continuous DR Testing
Automated Service Oriented Testing – Removes the cost and complexity associated with outdated, infrequent and manual DR testing.  Schedule automated testing based on each applications RPO requirements (minutes, hourly, daily or weekly) measuring exactly how long it takes the application or service to recover – Recovery Time Actual (RTA) and enforcing recovery time objectives (RTO). 
 
Application Centric Testing – Reliable DR includes out-of-the-box test (Recovery Runbooks) for Windows Server and Linux virtual machines, including popular applications like Exchange, SQL, SharePoint, and Active Directory, and Linux applications such as MySQL, Web Services and Oracle.  Application centric testing measures Recovery Time Actuals for an entire n-tier IT Service, such as ERP, e-commerce, etc., insuring all the interdependent services function as a cohesive IT service, creating a certified recovery point and assuring recovery at the DR site.
 
Recovery Runbooks – Applications and IT services are tested in an isolated Sandbox on the DR site against Recovery runbooks that includes the execution of commands, queries, transactions and other relevant workloads to prove the operational readiness of the recovered application(s).  Recovery runbooks validate each tier of an application and apply business rule to each recovery step ensuring policy compliance.  At the completion of a successful test, ReliableDR creates a certified recovery point that is consistent and complete and contains all the necessary components required to restore the entire IT service, including data, operating system, middleware, web services, databases, etc. 
 
Failover and Failback Testing – Automates failover and failback processes during a simulated outage to insure availability of critical IT services.  Uses production network mapping to drastically speed the process of true application failover and failback.
Real-Time Reporting
Web-based Architecture - ReliableDR is a web application that can be driven and queried from other applications. This useful for any organization with multiple tenants and well-structured governance and service delivery processes. This is also beneficial to Cloud Service Providers that have developed an end user portal and want to provide all services through the portal. ReliableDR can be invoked without needing to manually access the UI, paving the way for Cloud Service Providers to provide Recovery as a Service and automate the DR process.

Advanced Compliance Reporting - ReliableDR provides the unmatched ability to measure Recovery Time Actuals and the aging of application snapshots. This enhanced reporting allows auditors, risk officers and other non-IT staff to obtain compliance data on demand, without disrupting production. This also enables users to prove and demonstrate to compliance auditors the actual performance of their DR implementation against business continuity objectives.

Auditing - ReliableDR provides DR compliance monitoring to IT administrators, so that their activities can be audited, a key benefit in highly regulated industries with stringent requirements for audit and reporting. Additionally detailed reporting is available for auditors and to meet compliance and regulatory requirements.

Real-Time Alerts - The Web based dashboard provides real-time job summaries, at-a-glance recovery risk and recovery objective compliance views for every application. Immediate detection and alerting of deviations in Recovery Time Actuals and Recovery Point Objectives are displayed on the dashboard, exported reports, email reports and SNMP alerts.
Reduced Risk, Cost & Complexity
Reduces Risk – The combination of Recovery-Series or Unitrends Enterprise Backup and ReliableDR assure fast, efficient, secure backup with built-in offsite replication, measurable IT Service RPO & RTO SLAs, compliance and application-centric testing & recovery guarantees that the entire IT Service is always fully recoverable in the DR site/Unitrends Cloud.
 
Reduces Costs – ReliableDR offers hardware agnostic data protection, replication, failover/failback and assured recovery, enables non-disruptive, fully automated DR testing (minutes, hourly, daily, weekly), eliminates costly, time consuming, repetitive legacy DR test processes and automates Network Mapping.
 
Reduces Complexity – ReliableDR performs server, application and IT Service failover, at the push of a button, reports compliance deviations via real-time dashboard and email, scales from small IT environments to large data centers, protects Microsoft and Linux x86 based business applications, provides Always-on VMs (continuous dependencies), manages and protects hybrid cloud and virtual environments (VMWare and Hyper-V) and doesn’t require any guest agents to install or manage.
