Continuity Software Launches AvailabilityGuard 7, Bringing IT Operations Analytics to the Software-Defined Datacenter
Continuity Software, the leading provider of IT Operations Analytics for infrastructure outage prevention, today announced the release of version 7 of its award winning AvailabilityGuard software, providing enterprise IT teams with advanced predictive analytics, risk detection, and outage prevention capabilities across their software-defined datacenters.  

AvailabilityGuard provides infrastructure teams with predictive IT Operations Analytics capabilities that ensure resiliency, high availability, and operational excellence in the highly dynamic environment of the software-defined datacenter. AvailabilityGuard allows IT organizations to proactively identify and mitigate hidden design and deployment flaws that may introduce downtime risks, single-points-of-failure, and deviations from best practices across the entire infrastructure.

"The transition towards the software-defined datacenter delivers higher levels of agility and control to IT organizations, but at the same time presents new challenges," said Doron Pinhas, CTO, Continuity Software. "The risk of misconfiguration does not go away with automation. If certain configuration deviates from best practices, automation only helps it spread faster and makes it more difficult to pinpoint. AvailabilityGuard is a safeguard against the diffusion of bad practices and risky configurations throughout the infrastructure."

AvailabilityGuard enables IT teams to ensure that all systems of their respective Software Defined Data Centers are properly configured according to vendor best practices and internally-defined standards across all virtual and physical layers by:

  • Performing daily verification of the entire IT landscape to identify single-points-of-failure and other configuration risks while reducing time and effort associated with pre-rollout testing
  • Verifying configuration changes before they impact the business
  • Providing actionable recommendations for applying best practices and removing availability risks
  • Measuring KPI's that support continuous improvement to establish safer and more agile best practices over time.

Additionally, AvailabilityGuard helps IT organizations realize the benefits of the Software-Defined Datacenter with greater confidence, providing a blueprint for safer transition towards automation by verifying the existing environment to ensure a clean start, validating that automation scripts are programmed correctly, and ensuring ongoing automated validation following the transition.

"Automating standard validation means you get things done right from day one, as opposed to learning how to get there after years of trial-and-error," added Pinhas. "Best practices not only protect against risks to your environment, but also help you get the best utilization and performance from your technology and make systems easier to maintain and update."
