Continuity Software's AvailabilityGuard Named One of VMware's Most Promising Solutions

Continuity Software, the leading provider of IT operations analytics solutions for infrastructure outage prevention, today announced its selection as one of CIO Review Top 20 Most Promising VMware Solutions for 2015.

According to the latest issue of CIO Review, "A distinguished panel comprising of CEOs, CIOs, VPs, analysts and the CIO Review editorial board has selected the top players from the highly competitive field of VMware solutions. The 20 Most Promising VMware Solution Providers feature the best solution providers offering technologies and services that add value to the VMware landscape. The firms presented in this issue have exhibited vast knowledge and in-depth expertise in delivering VMware solutions enforcing IT best practices which resulted in great value addition to businesses."

"We are excited to be included in this prestigious list," said Continuity Software Founder and CEO Gil Hecht. "Most organizations lack visibility into the cross-domain aspects of their infrastructure and are exposed to hidden risks that cannot be identified by the standard monitoring tools delivered by single platform vendors. AvailabilityGuard enables VMware teams to gain visibility to help them make smarter decisions and optimize IT operations."

The typical VMware environment includes many components such as Virtual Machines, Virtual File Systems, Database and Application Servers, guest OS clustering and more. Keeping up with emerging business needs and a continuous stream of configuration changes across all layers creates an extremely challenging and dynamic virtualization environment. Whether managed with or without vCenter, these ongoing changes inevitably result in configuration drift, single-points-of-failures, and other misconfigurations that put system availability at serious risk.

AvailabilityGuard enables IT organizations to ensure high availability, resiliency, and data protection throughout all layers of their VMware environment, including:

  • vSphere Storage and Replication Configuration: AvailabilityGuard verifies that underlying storage devices are accessible and configured to provide equal levels of availability and service. AvailabilityGuard assures that upon a host failure, your clusters will successfully relocate workload to other hosts and be able to react to VM failures - whether at the OS or application level.
  • VMware SRM: AvailabilityGuard can verify that SRM is set up correctly to manage the replication process, to make DR LUNs accessible, and to start the services at the remote site - ensuring that multi-site failover and data recovery will function according to plan.
  • VM and Application Level Settings: AvailabilityGuard assures that all cluster configurations and settings are aligned and well orchestrated.
  • ESX Cluster Node: AvailabilityGuard's intelligent comparison engine empowers VMware teams to proactively identify and fix inconsistencies between cluster nodes that could lead to unexpected behavior following a cluster failover.
