ReliableDR™ Failback, Failover, and DR Testing Software

Guarantees recovery with 100% automated DR failover, failback and testing.

Disaster Recovery with Automated Orchestration and Testing for VMware vSphere and Microsoft Hyper-V
You’ve automated your backup across your data center, but what about recovery? How do you ensure that you can recover not only at the server level but at the operating system level? Even more importantly is recovery at the application level with an iron-clad certified assurance that mission critical applications are recovered within a specific amount of time (guaranteed RTO—Recovery Time Objective) and within the maximum tolerable data loss period (guaranteed RPO—Recovery Point Objective).

Ever wonder about all those VMware vSphere backups and Microsoft Hyper-V Backups that you religiously performed and replicated—what happens to each of them? You just throw each one away. What if you had a technology that allowed you to use each and every one of them so that you knew—without a doubt—that you could recover within your objectives? That you could finally stop talking about RTOs and RPOs and instead talk about RTAs and RPAs (Recovery Time Actuals and Recovery Point Actuals)?

Enter Unitrends. Unitrends ReliableDR™ enables you to take the guesswork out of recovery—to replace the time and expense of manual testing while ensuring that you meet your business service level agreements and your compliance requirements. ReliableDR allows you to:

  • Orchestrate and automate application-specific testing—ensuring recovery metrics are measured across multi-tiered applications and not just single VMs.
  • Guarantee recovery with 100% automated DR failover, failback and testing.
  • Automatically create certified recovery points that match corporate recovery policies (RTO/RPO) insuring SLA’s are intact.
  • Measure and certify that RPOs and RTOs will be achieved per application.
  • Enable non-disruptive, fully automated disaster recovery testing as often as you want.
  • Immediately detect and report compliance deviations via real-time dashboards. 
  • Guarantee failover of virtualized applications and business services.

Recovery-Series Data Backup Appliances

Physical Appliances for Data Protection, Instant Recovery, and Cloud Recovery

Recovery Assurance for VMware vSphere and Microsoft Hyper-V. Automates failover and recovery verification with Unitrends Recovery-Series Appliances, Unitrends Enterprise Backup, and Unitrends Virtual Backup. Provides cost-effective, storage agnostic replication that can scale to large environments, save bandwidth with WAN-friendly data transfer, secure with government grade encryption, and conduct granular backup and recovery.

Automated, Continuous, Service-Oriented DR Testing. Removes the cost and complexity associated with outdated, infrequent and manual DR test procedures. Directly certifies that your DR strategy is sound by frequently testing it against defined objectives.

Application-Aware Testing. Measures accurate Recovery Time Actuals of the entire service you are protecting without time-consuming manual procedures or error prone scripting. Leverages out-of-the box testing capabilities for each component of your multi-tiered applications to ensure they all function together as a cohesive service at your DR site.

Certified Recovery Points. Protects against configuration drift and accidental changes that can replicate to the DR site by automatically storing multiple recovery points that are certified through detailed, automated testing procedures.

Test, Failover, and Failback. Automates failover and failback processes when an outage occurs in order to maintain availability of your critical services. Uses production network mapping to drastically speed the process of true application failover.

Flexible Replication Options. Maximizes your IT investments, simplifies configuration, and decreases application RPOs through ReliableDR’s easy to use integration with all major storage vendors. If needed, you can also leverage the zero-footprint host-based replication capabilities built into ReliableDR for a complete DR solution in one product.

Automated Network Mapping. Very often production and DR virtual networks are not exactly the same. There are two main components to properly managing DR failover, failback and testing between environments that have different networks. The first is ensuring that the applications are properly mapped into the correct networks at the DR site for full functionality and communication, and the second is reconfiguring guest IP addresses at the DR site.

Always on VMs (continuous dependencies). It is common for several applications to share common components, such as DNS servers, domain controllers and other middleware. This feature allows applications to be DR tested separately yet reuse the same base services. It supplies more resilience by helping DR planners ensure that related applications are check-pointed and recoverable from a consistent set of common components.

User Auditing. ReliableDR extends DR compliance monitoring to the activity of ReliableDR’s administrators, so that their activities can be audited, a key benefit in highly regulated industries with stringent requirements for audit and reporting.

Web-Oriented Architecture. ReliableDR is a web application that can be driven and queried from other applications. This a key advantage for large environments with multiple tenants and well-structured governance and service delivery processes. For example, Cloud Service Providers that have developed an end user portal and want to provide all catalogued services through it, can invoke ReliableDR without needing to manually access the UI. This paves the way for CSPs to provide Recovery as a Service and automate the backend process.

Advanced Reporting that Includes Compliance. ReliableDR provides the unmatched ability to measure Recovery Time Actuals and the aging of application snapshots. The enhanced reporting allows auditors, risk officers and other non-IT staff to obtain compliance data on demand and without disrupting data center operations. This also enables users to prove and demonstrate to compliance auditors the definitive actual performance of their DR implementation against objectives.

ReliableDR Enterprise Edition
Available as an integrated software add-on  for Recovery Series, Unitrends Enterprise Backup, and Unitrends Virtual Backup for VMware vSphere and Microsoft Hyper-V environments.  Also available as standalone ReliableDR software for VMware vSphere environments.

Unitrends Certified Recovery Suite
ReliableDR is also available as part of our Unitrends Certified Recovery Suite.  This suite is licensed on a per-socket and per-server basis and includes:

  • Unitrends Enterprise Backup
  • Unitrends Virtual Backup
  • ReliableDR
All for much less than the cost of any two of these products.

Unitrends Cloud
ReliableDR is also available as part of our Unitrends Cloud offering.
