Disaster Recovery Advisor is a comprehensive high availability and disaster recovery monitoring and analysis solution that automatically scans the data center to detect HA/DR risks and vulnerabilities. It scans storage, servers, databases, clusters, and replication infrastructures using a knowledge base containing over 4,600 risk signatures. When gaps are discovered, the software alerts the system administrator so the issues can be resolved before business operations are impacted. As an agent less solution, the implementation of Disaster Recovery Advisor is unobtrusive and non-disruptive, operating in read-only mode. Monitoring and management is simple with status dashboards that provide detailed insight into the data center's environment. The software is simple to use and easy to manage for system administrators.
Agent-less and automatic scan of infrastructure
Disaster Recovery Advisor collects configuration information from storage, servers and databases. Then the agent-less software uses the gathered information to scan the entire data center environment. Scans can be scheduled per desired frequency. The software's automatic analysis tools and powerful Gap Detection Engine can detect vulnerabilities that include unprotected databases or database partitions, noncompliant replication configurations, data that cannot be recovered to a valid consistency point and much more.
Gap knowledge base
Disaster Recovery Advisor utilizes a knowledge base containing thousands of gap signatures to scan collected infrastructure configuration information in order to detect potential risks to recoverability. The knowledge base is updated automatically whenever signatures are created.
Disaster Recovery Advisor also helps improve overall system performance by highlighting unutilized storage space, old and unused copies of storage volumes, database entities and replication configuration changes that improve bandwidth performance.
Integration with system management consoles
By integrating with existing system management frameworks, Disaster Recovery Advisor consolidates management capabilities across the enterprise. As the software monitors the infrastructure and detects gaps, vulnerabilities or protection SLA violations, it immediately sends notification tickets to the system management console, allowing the system operators to proactively mitigate risk before business operations are impacted.
Enterprise scalability and performance
Designed to protect large enterprise data centers, Disaster Recovery Advisor's architecture is built on a distributed approach to allow for monitoring of multiple, geographically dispersed data centers. Agent-less scanners can be deployed at any data center to work seamlessly with the Disaster Recovery Advisor enterprise server, to provide a single consolidated view of enterprise-wide DR readiness.
