Sungard Fires Up New Storage Replication Service for SMBs

Data center software and services provider SunGard and storage partner EMC have come up with a new data replication service that enables IT managers of SMBs to get their systems back up and running quickly after an unplanned outage.

Sungard on May 12 said its Availability Services' Storage Replication Service will become available starting in June 2010 through EMC Select, a program that helps customers acquire data center components for specific types of systems.

SunGard's Storage Replication Service uses a combination of EMC RecoverPoint/SE and SunGard's AdvancedRecovery services running on EMC Clariion arrays, with the replication handled at a secure SunGard data center.

The service is designed to meet recovery time objectives of less than 12 hours.

Using this service, no new hardware for duplicated recovery platforms -- or even an entire second data center -- is required.

The Storage Replication Service is the newest addition to SunGard's AdvancedRecovery portfolio, which also offers consultation services to address the performance, cost and risk of application-specific availability requirements.
