Flash-Based Storage

Flash-Based Storage

Flash speeds for business-critical applications. Continuous application availability. You can have it all. You want to use solid state drives (SSDs) or other forms of flash memory to enable fast read/write rates and reduce your environmental footprint, power consumption, and total cost of ownership (TCO). At the same time, you need to ensure continuous availability of your most critical applications. You’ve considered synchronous replication for disaster recovery, but it can impose additional latency overhead that reduces or negates the performance gains offered by flash-based storage. Axxana’s Phoenix solutions let you take advantage of flash-based storage without losing any data, degrading performance, or compromising availability. Contact us to see how Axxana changes the game.

Move to Tier 2 Storage

Move to Tier 2 Storage

Lower-tier storage. Higher-tier disaster recovery. To lower storage costs, you want to use Tier 2 storage for certain applications, but your Tier 2 storage solution isn’t set up for synchronous replication or fast recovery. Even though the Tier 2 data may be lower priority than Tier 1 data, you cannot afford to lose it or risk downtime if it becomes temporarily unavailable after a disaster. Axxana’s Phoenix solutions can be economically incorporated into existing data storage solutions to enable fast recovery and continuous application availability for any storage tier. Change the game—with Axxana. Contact us.

Three’s a Crowd

Three’s a Crowd

Move from a three- to two-data-center topology while reducing your downtime risk. You implemented a three-data-center disaster recovery topology, believing it was the only way to achieve continuous application availability across long distances. You placed one data center near your primary site, for synchronous replication, and another one at a large distance, for asynchronous protection. Now your costs are shooting through the roof, and the operational complexity of a three-data-center topology is posing a real risk to your failover during a disaster. Moving to a two-data-center solution would alleviate these burdens, but how do you ensure continuous application availability when data centers are too far apart to allow synchronous replication—or so close together that they’re vulnerable to regional disasters? Many vendors will tell you it isn’t possible. Axxana’s Phoenix solutions enable continuous application availability regardless of data center topology so that you no longer have to compromise. Contact us to see how we can help.

Data Center Consolidation

Data Center Consolidation

Across the country or in the cloud. Locate disaster recovery operations anywhere. You’re consolidating data center operations so that you can offer new services, become more agile, and do more with your existing investments. You want to locate business operations where they are most efficient and economical, but your data centers are too far apart for synchronous replication and the high availability that it offers. Cloud-based disaster recovery services may also be part of your consolidation strategy, but you are concerned that a regional disaster could knock out the provider’s data replication and recovery capabilities. Axxana’s Phoenix solutions protect the entire data lag right at the primary site, so distance between primary and disaster recovery sites doesn’t matter. Because sites can be located at any distance from each other, organizations can achieve continuous application availability without making costly investments in new, nearby data centers. Contact us to see how Axxana can change the game for you.

Maximize Performance

Maximize Performance

Synchronous replication without propagation delays. Rapid access to applications and services is essential for your transactions, content delivery, and other business-critical processes, yet data latency associated with synchronous replication to your disaster recovery site would cause unacceptable delays. Axxana’s Phoenix solutions are not affected by the distance between your primary and disaster recovery data centers and therefore allow ultra-low-latency, long-distance synchronous replication. Contact us to learn how Axxana changes the game.

Turn Async to Sync

Turn Async to Sync

Compromising on downtime is no longer an option. You’ve been using asynchronous-only replication—whether on premises or in the cloud—because it’s less costly than synchronous replication or because your data centers are too far apart to allow synchronous replication. You know you’re putting your organization at risk of slow recovery times and application unavailability, but you haven’t found another way to do things. Until now…. Axxana’s Phoenix solutions allow organizations of any size, complexity, or budget to achieve continuous application availability. Contact us. We change the game.
