Artisan Infrastructure Enhances IT Continuity Engine
The latest updates deliver business continuity for VMware vCenter Server, protecting virtual machine-based applications from downtime.Artisan Infrastructure, a specialist in cloud infrastructure, cloud management and business continuity solutions, announced enhancements to IT Continuity Engine (ITCE), including support for VMware vCenter Server. The latest updates deliver business continuity for VMware vCenter Server, protecting virtual machine-based applications from downtime. In addition, ITCE's integration with VMware now provides a high availability (HA), disaster recovery (DR) solution which supplements or replaces native VMware business continuity and disaster recovery (BCDR) solutions. "Many of our customers require that they are able to isolate the DR site periodically to be able to test their recovery plan," Michael Wrightson, director of product management for business continuity solutions at Artisan Infrastructure, told eWEEK. "With Engine, you simply stop replication and after the isolation takes place, they can promote the DR copies to active status to perform the testing. Afterwards, these systems go back into passive mode. Once the site is visible, Engine automatically will resynchronize the passive nodes with the current data from the production active server."
Artisan Infrastructure's ITCE core technology was the foundational technology originally used to protect vCenter, and IT Continuity Engine advantages for VMware vCenter Server environments include the prevention of data loss by ensuring a near-zero recovery point objective (RPO).
