"Continuity Software's RecoverGuard is the most complete DR and HA testing and monitoring product that I have seen on the market today. In fact, it is the only DR and HA solution that I know about that has been able to effectively keep pace with support for virtually all enterprise technology platforms, as well as with the countless risks and vulnerabilities found in today's dynamic data centers," said David Hill, Principal, Mesabi Group (http://www.mesabigroup.com), and author of the book, Data Protection: Governance, Risk Management, and Compliance. "It is actually mind boggling that today, any business organization would not employ a DR and HA vulnerability detection solution. One needs only to read the recent headlines to be reminded that it is not a question of if an issue will arise - only when."

Hill continued, "The addition of the Private Cloud Advisor to RecoverGuard software is indeed an important enhancement, given the proliferation of customers deploying private clouds and their inherent DR and HA challenges."

Commenting on RecoverGuard software, Jean S. Bozman, Research Vice President, IDC's (http://www.idc.com/) Enterprise Platforms Group, said, "Private cloud computing is a data center strategy for delivering in-house IT services based on the delivery of virtualized software stacks, on an on-demand basis, and protected within the company's security firewalls. However, achieving high availability in a highly virtualized environment is often difficult, because of the need to visualize, and to manage, all of the components in a unified way. Continuity's RecoverGuard v5.2 software will help IT staff to verify the correct mapping of VMs - whether they are running on physical servers or housed in storage arrays - for purposes of disaster recovery planning, application-specific recovery in case of outages and ongoing support of service level (SLA) agreements that are set for specific workloads running in this environment."

"While private clouds can offer tremendous business benefit in terms of server consolidation and allocating IT expense across the organization, they also introduce IT management complexity. Specifically, private clouds introduce abstraction layers which lead to service availability issues such as hidden single points of failure, failing high availability relocations and best practice and SLA violations. Recoverability (DR) and data protection challenges are also introduced, as private cloud technology is not storage aware," said Gil Hecht, Founder and CEO of Continuity Software. "RecoverGuard v5.2 enables customers to completely eliminate these risks and vulnerabilities - essentially making the cloud infrastructure aware. RecoverGuard v5.2 delivers a complete, end-to-end solution for validating and assuring both recovery point objectives (RPO) and recovery time objectives (RTO) in both physical and/or virtualized environments - thereby allowing customers to fully ensure business continuity."

Relied upon by many of the leading data centers in virtually every industry vertical around the world, RecoverGuard is the only comprehensive, enterprise class, high availability and disaster recovery vulnerability detection solution for both physical and/or virtualized environments on the market today. Its field proven ability to identify cross-platform data protection risks, deliver high availability validation, as well as resource and performance optimization, is truly unique. Moreover, while competitors cover approximately 20 - 30 static rules, RecoverGuard includes over 4,000 risk signatures in a dynamic, auto-updated knowledgebase (approximately 100 new signatures are added each month). From data protection validation, to server OS configuration analysis, cluster configuration validation, HA/DR optimization, as well as heterogeneous platform support - no other solution comes even close to the breadth and depth delivered by RecoverGuard today.
