The HX Data Platform uses a self-healing architecture that implements data replication for high availability, remediates hardware failures, and alerts your IT administrators so that problems can be resolved quickly and your business can continue to operate. Space-efficient, pointerbased snapshots facilitate backup operations, and native replication supports cross-site protection. Data-at-rest encryption protects data from security risks and threats. Integration with leading enterprise backup systems allows you to extend your preferred data protection tools to your hyperconverged environment.
This document introduces Neverfail Heartbeat, a technology that enables the protection of applications against many potential failures, including application failure, operating system failures, and hardware, network or site failures, at a reasonable cost.
When was the last time you thought about your disaster recovery plan? Natural disasters, such as earthquakes, tsunamis, hurricanes, fires, or floods can occur anytime and disable your data center, with little to no warning. Hacker activities like a denial of service attack can also take down your systems unexpectedly. Then you have the more mundane risks such as human error and hardware or software failures. The only predictable thing to say about these risks is that at some point, on some scale, you’ll have to recover your data center from downtime. When it comes to disaster readiness, proactive planning is the key to success. Every business, regardless of size, needs to have a well-tested disaster recovery plan in place. Every minute your systems are down, the financial implications grow.
Take the assessment to see where your disaster recovery plan ranks. Then learn about next steps and more information.
No business is immune to the threat of IT downtime caused by natural and manmade disasters. Natural disasters—such as earthquakes, tsunamis, hurricanes, fires, and floods—can happen with little to no advanced warning. But the bigger risk is often human-induced events—from simple IT configuration errors to significant data center problems. If you lack a rock-solid disaster recovery (DR) plan, any of these unpredictable events—natural or manmade—could bring your business and its revenue streams to a halt. Yet many organizations are not well prepared for the unknown. The randomness of such events lulls people into a sense of false security—“That’s not likely to happen here.” While you can hope to avoid events that threaten the continuity of your business, the reality remains unchanged: Disasters happen—so you need to prepare for them.

BACKUP ISN’T JUST A COPY IN THE CLOUD.
IT’S THE ANTIDOTE TO EVERYTHING.
Be it user error, natural disaster, hardware failure, malware, theft
or litigation—there’s a countermeasure to restore your business to normal. Skeptical? Click through the eBook to ?nd out how backup makes the enterprise impervious.
Every data center IT manager must constantly deal with certain practical constraints such as time, complexity, reliability, maintainability, space, compatibility, and money. The challenge is that business application demands on computing technology often don’t cooperate with these constraints.
A day is lost due to a software incompatibility introduced during an upgrade, hours are lost tracing cables to see where they go, money is spent replacing an unexpected hardware failure, and so on. Day in and day out, these sorts of interruptions burden data center productivity.
Sometimes, it’s possible to temporarily improve the situation by upgrading to newer technology. Faster network bandwidth and storage media can reduce the time it takes to make backups. Faster processors — with multiple cores and larger memory address space — make it possible to practically manage virtual machines.

The data that resides within Salesforce.com is arguably some of an organization’s most valuable data for all current and future revenue – including contacts, purchase history, lead information, reports on prospects, sales quotes, signed contracts, and customer invoices. Salesforce has a robust data center and the infrastructure to protect your data from hardware failure, even on a catastrophic scale. However, it does not protect you from user error or data being overwritten.
Establishing an ESB is essential in delivering a Service-Oriented Architecture. But for an SOA to be effective, you’ll also need your ESB to recover quickly from unexpected hardware and software failures. Clustering can help by enabling your systems to operate in parallel, so that if one should fail, those remaining can seamlessly step in.
More than ever before, IT managers need to secure equipment and facilities against a variety of intrusive conditions that could cripple critical operations, resulting in system malfunctions, loss of data or intellectual property, damage to mission critical hardware or even theft of valuable physical assets. Such conditions often include environmental events, failure of air conditioning systems, power outages, and untoward human actions.
Providers who add BDR to their offerings can enjoy substantial profit margins and incremental monthly recurring revenue. BDR, therefore, is ideal for solution providers, especially as a first step to a managed services practice.
This whitepaper provides guidance on common high-availability and scale-out deployment architectures, and discusses the factors to consider for your specific business environment. Three basic models are described for deploying an on-site managed file transfer (MFT) solution. The attributes of each option are described; each has pros and cons and offers a different balance of cost, complexity, availability, and scalability. The paper explains that, no matter how reliable each model is, any deployment can experience outages. The recommendation is to use clustering services to protect your data when the inevitable hardware, software, or network failures occur.
