Zero Data Loss Without the High Price Tag
Zero data loss is the benchmark for data protection, but many IT professionals mistakenly believe it is impossible to achieve in their organization—especially if they are u sing asynchronous replication. Traditional disaster recovery solutions have relied on synchronous replication when zero data loss is required, but these data protection solutions are costly and not always feasible depending on data center topology and other factors. Axxana’s Phoenix guarantees zero data loss in any replication environment so that you can protect your business and preserve business continuity regardless of size, complexity, or budget.
Data Protection and Recovery Time
When using asynchronous replication for data protection, there is an inherent lag between the data in the primary site and the data in the disaster recovery site. If this lag is not protected, your organization risks losing transaction data during a disaster. Even synchronous replication environments are not immune to data loss. Because synchronous replication requires geographic proximity, regional outages, as well as rolling disasters, can bring synchronous replication to a halt, resulting in data loss.
When you lose transaction data, you lose more than the data itself. You also risk losing data consistency across business-critical databases and applications. Disaster recovery in this scenario requires time-consuming identification of what data has been lost and reconstruction of application consistency, which slows the recovery process and the return to normal operations. The longer the recovery time—that is, the longer the downtime—the greater the potential loss of revenue, customers, productivity, and reputation. Gartner Research “typically cites the cost of network downtime as $5600 per minute, which extrapolates to well over $300K per hour.”
Data Protection for Any Replication Environment
Although many organizations resign themselves to some amount of data loss when using either asynchronous replication for data protection, your organization doesn’t have to tolerate any amount of data loss during a disaster. Axxana Phoenix uses its disaster-proof Black Box and dynamic compute, memory, storage, and networking technologies to protect the data lag (not-yet-replicated data) during a disaster and safely transfer the data during recovery. This unique data protection solution works with your existing disaster recovery topology to ensure zero data loss and rapid recovery time.
