Sungard needed touch-free Disaster Recovery, reducing the manual effort, human errors, recovery times and cost.
Traditionally, the majority of the disaster recovery processes/tasks were very manual, requiring increased levels of expertise (especially in a time of significant technological evolution). Yet, no matter how skilled an organization might be, a forced reliance on manual tasks inevitably leads to human error, increased costs and difficulties in executing recovery processes and providing visibility. This solution/program goal would enable Sungard AS’s vision of making Disaster Recovery fully touch free, reducing the manual effort, human errors, recovery times and cost, while bringing a seamless/frictionless experience to Sungard AS customers.
The RES orchestration framework has immense value that extends beyond disaster recovery. Specifically, it can assist in data center migration, new customer on boarding and has potential to be deployed outside of the Sungard AS network in customer premises.
