RackWare Brings Cloud-Based Disaster Recovery for Physical and Virtual Workloads

New RackWare Management Module 3.0 Solution Provides Cost-Effective Protection for the Majority of Workloads in Data Centers

SANTA CLARA, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/29/14 -- RackWare, the software provider that integrates data center and cloud resources into a scalable and intelligently managed computing environment, today announced the general availability of RackWare Management Module (RMM) 3.0. Providing a simple and cost-effective solution for enterprise data centers, whether traditional or cloud-based, RMM 3.0 drastically lowers the cost of disaster recovery, allowing enterprises to ensure protection of mission-critical IT resources in case of planned and unplanned outages. With RMM 3.0, enterprises can seamlessly extend existing IT architecture into the cloud for minimal disruption.

RackWare's flexible and automated cloud management solution enables enterprises to easily move their workloads seamlessly between private, public or hybrid cloud environments, while allowing them to expand and contract resources as they are needed. With the announcement of RMM 3.0, RackWare combines its intelligent scaling and migration capabilities with cloud-based disaster recovery, providing enterprises with a complete cloud management solution for business-critical use cases. The newly added capability provides whole-server protection and failover at a fraction of the cost of running a fully replicated data center architected for high-availability or clustering technologies.

Requiring just hours or days to implement and providing maximum availability-to-cost ratio, RMM 3.0 empowers enterprises to execute disaster recovery for the modern data center. The new solution provides an unprecedented level of redundancy, dramatically reducing the headache of purchasing, implementing and maintaining a full replicated disaster recovery site. By utilizing flexible cloud infrastructure, protecting workloads can be done in as little as one hour and testing can be as frequent as needed. The solution brings physical, virtual, and cloud based workloads to the level of protection that mission-critical systems protected by expensive and complex high availability solutions enjoy. Moreover, with disaster recovery that can be used with any cloud infrastructure, RMM 3.0 frees enterprises from vendor lock-in, allowing them to adapt along with their evolving infrastructure needs.

Key new functionality of RMM 3.0 includes:

  • Cloning of production servers - enabling full replication of the operating system, applications and data from production servers into cloud recovery instances;

  • Incremental synchronization - changes in the operating system, applications and data are all synchronized to the recovery instances as the production instances change, with only differences transmitted, saving bandwidth and resources;

  • Cloud-to-Cloud - production and recovery instances span heterogeneous cloud infrastructure or remain in the same infrastructure, across Amazon, RackSpace, CenturyLink, VMware, IBM Softlayer, and OpenStack, among others;

  • Physical-to-Cloud - physical production servers in traditional data centers can be protected by cloned instances into any cloud;

  • Failover - should an outage occur on the production system, the recovery instance is fully synchronized and automatically takes over workload processing;

  • Failback - once the production server is restored, the recovery instance synchronizes all changes that took place during the outage back to the production server for normalized operations;

  • Complete protection - Recovery Time Objective (RTO) and Recovery Point Objectives (RPO) exceed expectations by expanding the scope of disaster recovery to include workloads that are normally under-protected.

Availability
RMM 3.0 is generally available now in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, France, India and Japan. To learn more, please visit http://www.rackwareinc.com/products/request-a-demo/ for a free demonstration and to purchase the new technology.

"RackWare provides a solid new disaster recovery solution that will allow us to dramatically reduce downtime during an outage with failover capabilities of complex and expensive high-availability solutions, and at a fraction of the cost," said Mark Kocour, associate principal - Global IT for ZS Associates. "Using the new RackWare Management Module 3.0 disaster recovery solution, we are able to easily extend our disaster recovery strategy into the cloud without having to buy additional specialized hardware or duplicate our production systems. This allows us to protect a larger number of workloads across our data center, while increasing their availability."

"The RackWare Management Module (RMM) helps us help our customers," said Steve Paton, vice president of infrastructure for Peer1 Hosting. "We're currently taking advantage of using RMM as a migration tool to help minimize downtime. The technology allows us to seamlessly and easily migrate from any location to bare metal and/or the cloud at a low cost compared to other solutions on the market today. The new disaster recovery component of RMM 3.0 looks fantastic. We're looking forward to deploying that as well and offering our customers full protection of their workloads in the data center."

"The migration and elasticity capabilities of the RackWare Management Module (RMM) technology are incredibly valuable," said Mike Strohl, chief executive officer of Entisys Solutions. "We're especially excited about the workload mobility features of the new RMM disaster recovery solution which allows us to fully protect our customers' servers and data using a variety of different recovery sites. This gives us the unique ability to diversify the risk of downtime in our customers' data center by utilizing a variety of cloud infrastructures."

"Given the dire consequences and high costs of downtime, having an effective disaster recovery system in place is vital for all organizations today," said Jim Rapoza, senior research analyst for Aberdeen Group. "By taking advantage of cloud-based disaster recovery, businesses that haven't implemented DR because of the cost and complexity can now leverage this important capability and avoid the costs of downtime."

"Disaster recovery is an essential element of any business' IT. However, so far enterprises have been limited to either complex, expensive high-availability solutions or tape backup solutions with lengthy restoration times, not ideal for a business that needs to get back up and running quickly after an outage or natural disaster," said Sash Sunkara, chief executive officer and co-founder of RackWare. "With today's launch of RackWare Management Module 3.0, we extend our intelligent automation and policy framework to enable business-critical use cases. Our cost-effective disaster recovery solution allows enterprises to ensure 360 degree protection of the majority of workloads in their data center. We believe that this unprecedented level of flexibility and protection at a low cost will be an industry game changer."
