There’s nothing else like it. It’s smart, feature-rich, and supports multiple applications. With built-in compute, storage, and network functionality, PhoenixOS™ enables a fast, lossless, consistent recovery after a disaster.
Intelligent Disaster Resilience
When disaster strikes, externally supplied power may be lost for hours. Bandwidth connections may be limited or intermittent. The Phoenix’s special-purpose operating system comprises a set of core CPU, memory, storage, and networking technologies that support business continuity and disaster resilience in any source connected to it. These technologies help ensure that data is protected for as long as needed and then transferred to the remote site as soon as possible—regardless of external post-disaster circumstances.
When Axxana’s Phoenix system goes into disaster mode, PhoenixOS™ optimizes technology usage to ensure system availability throughout disaster recovery. The operating system turns off devices that aren’t in use. It switches to the most conservative communication protocols.

Disaster Aware Storage
During a disaster, the operating system performs a quicker, more generalized type of caching (i.e., aggressive caching) so that it can quickly power down the disks while waiting for communications to be established.
PhoenixOS™ switches to a communication protocol that selectively compresses data based on power and bandwidth availability.
Prioritized Process Scheduling
To cope with reduced power and bandwidth resources, the operating system optimizes process scheduling to minimize recovery time for higher priority applications versus less critical ones.
PhoenixOS™ monitors data transfer between the primary and the secondary sites and deletes protected data in the Black Box once receipt at the secondary site is confirmed.
Optimized Computing Processes
The operating system optimizes the use of CPU cores and reduces CPU frequency to minimize power usage during a disaster.
Special sensors automatically detect power source failures and communication anomalies so that PhoenixOS™ can respond pre-emptively.
Smart Data Pre-Fetch
When disaster strikes, the operating system implements a pre-fetching algorithm that ships the data before the recovery application requests it, thereby reducing recovery time significantly.
Highest Level of Security
Encryption and strong authentication mechanisms are used to ensure that only authorized personnel can access the data inside the Black Box.
