You really hope you never have to use your disaster recovery solution. But when you do, it has to work right the first time. In the midst of an unplanned outage, it would be brutal to discover that you can’t actually recover your server workloads.
Our disaster recovery solutions use reliable enterprise-grade hard disk drives that resist physical damage (e.g., tapes stretching and snapping), self-monitoring technology (e.g., S.M.A.R.T.) to let you know when disk drives need replacing, and RAID storage to withstand even an actual hard drive failure.
Analysts recommend you test your disaster recovery systems at least quarterly, but few companies actually do. With most systems, testing is so tedious, invasive, and disruptive that they rarely get tested.
Both PlateSpin Protect and PlateSpin Forge allow sandboxed in-place testing without disrupting production systems. This means that tests can be run as frequently—and as intensively—as you think necessary to ensure peace of mind. And with a five-year warranty and the ability to work with either internal storage or a customer’s own SAN, our hardware solutions offer tremendous reliability.
