Reduce the cost of disaster recovery management.

Best practice disaster recovery management is critical to ensure the enterprise can operate without disruption or loss of business-critical data. Without solid disaster recovery management capabilities, the enterprise has no assurance that its backups are working or if the IT disaster recovery plan will recover systems and infrastructure within specific Recovery Point Objectives (RPOs) after a disaster.

Disaster recovery testing, an important component of disaster recovery management, provides assurance that service level agreements and compliance requirements can be met. Yet because manual testing is a complicated and costly task, many enterprises fail to make it a priority.

Unitrends can help. Unitrends ReliableDR™ provides automated failback, failover and disaster recovery testing for VMware vSphere and Microsoft Hyper-V environments, to enable you to take the guesswork out disaster recovery management.

Unitrends ReliableDR works with the Unitrends backup appliance and/or a production SAN storage system to automate key recovery processes like failover and failback, and provide regular testing that is more cost-efficient than manual alternatives. The result is unmatched resiliency for your virtual infrastructure and the ability to completely align your IT organization and business continuity objectives.
