Continuity Software launches AvailabilityGuard/Cloud

Continuity Software has announced the release of AvailabilityGuard/Cloud, a private cloud automated health check solution that detects cross-domain configuration errors across all layers of IT - all the way from application server to the database, virtual machine (VM), physical infrastructure, storage area network (SAN), network-attached storage (NAS) and clustering - in order to eliminate data loss and business downtime risks.

AvailabilityGuard/Cloud was created in response to the rapidly increasing rate at which organizations of all sizes are deploying mission-critical applications in virtualized private clouds and consequently, the sharp rise in private cloud downtime and data-loss events. While the benefits of virtualization are impossible to ignore, it has also become apparent that managing a private cloud infrastructure frequently involves manually-intensive processes that are prone to failure, often with a devastating effect on business service availability. With limited visibility across private cloud infrastructure layers, IT organizations have been unable to detect problems ahead of time and prevent them from disrupting the business. Even the most sophisticated IT organizations are learning that ensuring continuous service availability and data protection across their private cloud environment is easier said than done.

AvailabilityGuard/Cloud extends Continuity Software's proven downtime and data loss risk detection capabilities from the traditional data center/center environment to the private cloud. The solution enables users to automatically discover and eliminate vulnerabilities well before they impact the business, leveraging the patent-pending Risk Discovery Engine coupled with the continuously updated Risk Signature Knowledgebase of known and emerging private cloud configuration issues.

Moreover, AvailabilityGuard/Cloud provides up-to-date management reports with high-level executive summaries followed by supportive drill-down reporting that make it easier for IT organizations to wrap their arms around even the most complicated environment.
