Continuous Application Availability: Priceless

What would your risk calculations look like if application downtime was no longer part of the equation? How much money would you save in a disaster by ensuring continuous application availability with Axxana’s Phoenix?

The main purpose of disaster recovery planning is to ensure the continuation of business following a natural or human-made disaster. Zero data loss is essential to achieving this goal. Because data is at the heart of all IT operations, risk mitigation related to disaster recovery takes into account the following costs and risks:

  • Downtime related to data loss and application unavailability
  • Recovery costs related to reconciling data or re-establishing data consistency
  • Potential reputation and brand damage
  • Non-compliance with internal, industry, or government regulations related to data loss and availability, as well as violation of service level agreements (SLAs)
  • Loss of data that cannot be reconstructed (e.g., financial transactions, process documentation, or video surveillance)

Until now, balancing between the cost to achieve continuous application availability and the financial risk of not doing so has been an ongoing challenge. Even organizations that can afford the best traditional solutions have accepted a certain amount of downtime—and the resulting financial damage—as inevitable. Although such tradeoffs may have been necessary in the past, Axxana’s Phoenix has changed the game by removing data loss, and therefore, application downtime from the risk equation—at a dramatically lower cost than traditional synchronous replication solutions.

Axxana’s Phoenix is a smart, disaster-proof system that enables continuous application availability during a disaster by guaranteeing zero data loss. By eliminating the risks and high costs related to data loss and application downtime, it provides a powerful financial incentive to organizations that want to protect their business-critical data, applications, and processes. Can you afford not to have Axxana’s Phoenix?

Capex and Opex: Slashed

Why spend hundreds of thousands, if not millions, deploying and maintaining the data centers, communication lines, and other technology required to support synchronous replication when Axxana’s Phoenix ensures continuous application availability at a fraction of the cost?

Axxana’s Phoenix makes traditional disaster recovery strategies obsolete and removes the financial barriers to zero data loss. Instead of requiring nearby data centers for synchronous replication, the disaster-proof Phoenix system operates from within the primary data center. Here, it functions something like a bunker in a box, protecting otherwise lost data, detecting disastrous events, and responding intelligently to expedite recovery. Because Axxana’s Phoenix is housed at the production site and replication occurs over existing IP lines, bandwidth requirements related to synchronous replication are practically non-existent. In addition, the Axxana Phoenix system stores up to 3.2TB of data lag, which alleviates the need for additional investments in bandwidth, even as data volume grows.

By eliminating the need for additional data centers and data lines, Axxana’s Phoenix slashes the capital expenses and operational costs traditionally associated with data recovery and continuous application availability. No other technology can ensure continuous application availability at such a low cost.

Continuous Availability

Zero data loss and full consistency across applications means you can maintain continuous application availability, reducing the risk of lost revenue, productivity, or customers.

Cross-App Consistency

Phoenix synchronizes all applications and databases in the Oracle environment to one consistent point in time, allowing the fastest possible recovery.

Unmatched Cost Reduction

No three-data-center topology. No bandwidth upgrades. Less human intervention. Continuous application availability. Phoenix reduces capital, operational, and risk-related costs.

No Distance Barrier

Locate your DR site at any distance from the primary site. Phoenix augments your asynchronous replication and protects the entire data lag right at the primary site.

No Costly Communication Lines

The disaster-proof Black Box protects and transfers the data lag from its location at the primary site, eliminating bandwidth costs related to synchronous replication.

Continuous Application Availability at Flash Speeds

Phoenix protects the most recent not-yet-replicated snapshot and is the only technology that enables continuous application availability of flash-based storage arrays.
