Continuity Software has announced the general availability of RecoverGuard version 6.0, featuring significant management, scalability, flexibility, and security enhancements.
RecoverGuard v6.0 additions include:
- Distributed Collectors – Users can now setup multiple remote distributed data collectors across multiple geographies that are managed centrally by a single RecoverGuard server.
- Integration Options – Continuity Software has opened-up large portions of its RecoverGuard Configuration Management Database (CMDB) engine which allows for increased flexibility and easier integration into existing processes, a much deeper understanding of an IT environment’s storage and availability, as well as permits integration with additional external reporting tools, consoles, portals and other systems. Ticket management system integration has also been enhanced for easy integration with all major enterprise ticket management systems, with simple configuration via the UI.
- Host Configuration Comparison Module – Enables users to baseline their server environment, analyze and compare arbitrary groups of servers in order to understand which servers have deviations from the group, view side-by-side graphical comparisons for an even deeper understanding of the environment, and customize host configuration reporting for more effective and efficient management.

New guidance from the UK Department of Health proposes changes to the procedures for death and cremation certification that could be used in a severe influenza pandemic. It would enable doctors to spend as much time as possible on the care of the living and to ensure that processes for death and cremation certification can be managed as effectively as possible during a pandemic.
The guidance will be relevant to planners in local authorities and the NHS, funeral directors, registrars, coroners, local resilience forums, and other service providers (including any private or public organisations involved in the management of deaths).
