SunGard Availability Services has debuted a new service that enables end-to-end protection of data for customers with NetApp storage in their primary data-center environments.
Managed Vaulting for NetApp uses NetApp's SnapMirror or SnapVault technology to replicate data in real-time to NetApp infrastructure in SunGard AS' secure recovery environment, helping organizations protect critical data in their NetApp storage systems, vaulted in a trusted, off-site location, and available quickly when needed for disaster recovery.
Managed Vaulting for NetApp is delivered as a fully managed, online backup service that SunGard says includes everything needed to capture, replicate and store data in an off-site vault. Benefits organizations can achieve with Managed Vaulting for NetApp include assured data preservation; lower cost of storage; improved recovery point; decreased IT burdens; and lower CapEx associated with data protection and recovery.
"As partners, NetApp and SunGard Availability Services share a vision of giving enterprises and midmarket companies advanced management options to meet their data protection and business continuity needs," said Tom Shields, senior manager, solution marketing, NetApp. "SunGard Availability Services' Managed Vaulting service allows NetApp customers to extend the benefits of their on-premise NetApp environments to the cloud, while lowering costs for enterprise-class backup and disaster recovery."
"Too many organizations – especially ones that take a do-it-yourself approach – find restoration of business applications too difficult, unpredictable and costly," said Michael de la Torre, vice president, product management, SunGard Availability Services. "SunGard Availability Services' Managed Vaulting for NetApp addresses these challenges with a fully managed solution that extends beyond data protection to include application recovery while providing coherent capture, replication and retention of NetApp-stored data."
