NEW YORK, December 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
Continuity Software™, the leading provider of IT Resilience & Service Availability Assurance for infrastructure outage and data loss prevention, announced today new and enhanced operational capabilities for Cisco UCS® customers. These capabilities are included in the new edition of AvailabilityGuard, version 7.2.3, released early last week.
With the new version, AvailabilityGuard will be able to identify the latest risks unique to Cisco UCS environments and give organizations the ability to visualize the UCS environment (chassis, blades, internal networking, and service profiles) to see how it connects to the rest of the IT environment, as well as what workloads it runs. The new version will also allow organizations to continually validate that the environment is correctly configured, making sure that:
- Cisco's best practices for maximum redundancy and resiliency are met
- No single points of failure are introduced, either at the infrastructure level or in the way virtual workloads are configured (e.g., profiles correctly guarantee blades are using redundant fabrics, physical clusters are well distributed between each chassis, virtual machine affinity rules are correctly designed and implemented, and much more)
- The experiences of dozens of real-world UCS users are incorporated
"We are pleased to be able to provide Cisco UCS customers with superior risk detection," said Gil Hecht, CEO of Continuity Software. "As the platform has continued to grow, we've seen a great demand for these new capabilities and have decided to invest significant resources into enhancing our product to ensure our customers avoid downtime. This new offering will allow us to provide the right service to virtually every enterprise worldwide."
The latest version of AvailabilityGuard will also incorporate several new updates including additional support for RedHat High Availability, improved control and validation of active-active storage systems, such as EMC VPLEX, HDS G series, IBM SVC along with new platform support of Dell EMC Unity, reducing the risks of downtime. Together, these new updates will expand Continuity's already comprehensive support for HP and Cisco blade systems.
