SunGard Availability Services Introduces Recover2Cloud for vCenter SRM™

Wayne, Pa. –SunGard Availability Services today
announced Recover2Cloud for vCenter SRM: a recovery solution which
provides SLA-backed automated recovery of applications on VMware
infrastructure at secure SunGard Availability Services cloud-based
recovery sites. The service helps deliver fast, assured application
protection and recovery, removing the recovery challenges from customers
at the time of test or disaster while also reducing recovery times from
days to hours. SunGard Availability Services uses VMware vCenter Site
Recovery Manager™ 5.0 to power the recovery automation and orchestration
capabilities to recover customer’s applications into private dedicated
or shared environments.

Recover2Cloud for vCenter SRM offers the following benefits:

·Addresses the pressing needs of enterprises to manage replication and
rapidly recover large-scale virtualized environments

·Enables recovery of a VM environment within four to 12 hours

·Includes 24/7 monitoring of the protected recovery environment

·Provides an option of failover of VMs to a choice of private dedicated
or shared infrastructure environment without interrupting replication

·Connects to other SunGard Availability Services recovery services to
protect physical and hybrid environments

·Provides the ability to pay on a monthly basis and eliminates CAPEX
constraints to invest in a second site infrastructure and tools

“Not all cloud-based disaster recovery services are created equal,” said
Jason Buffington, senior analyst, Enterprise Strategy Group. “SunGard
Availability Services has differentiated its Recover2Cloud portfolio
with its disaster recovery experience and service level guarantee that
offers availability assurance of critical applications. In short,
SunGard Availability Services guarantees you’ll get what you’ve paid for
in Recovery-as-a-Service.”

“SunGard Availability Services’ Recover2Cloud for vCenter SRM service
gives us confidence that we can recover our VMs within much tighter
recovery time objectives,” said Derrick Brown, network manager,
Automobile Protection Corporation d/b/a EasyCare, the leading provider
of automotive benefits, including extended warranties, specifically
created to enhance a vehicle owner’s buying and ownership experience.
“By signing on with SunGard Availability Services, we will be able to
significantly improve recovery times for our VMware VMs.”

Recover2Cloud is an important piece of SunGard Availability Services’
Recovery Services portfolio of solutions, which provide availability
options that address a range of tiered applications in customer
environments. The SunGard Availability Services Recovery Services
portfolio includes:

·Data protection and management through online data vaulting and replication

·Systems recovery through SunGard Availability Services managed
hot-sites and cloud-based, automated recovery like Recover2Cloud Server
Replication for application recovery

·People, process and program management with SunGard Availability
Services’ Managed Recovery Program, which includes recovery procedure
development, test planning and execution, recovery execution and
lifecycle program and change management

“Recover2Cloud for vCenter SRM provides secure enterprise-class recovery
at a lower cost than building a dedicated second site filled with
dedicated equipment,” said Michael de la Torre, vice president, Product
Management, SunGard Availability Services. “Customers gain a scalable,
cost-efficient platform for virtual machine recovery – without spending
any additional CAPEX associated with their recovery platform.
Recover2Cloud for vCenter SRM completes our ability to recover physical
x86, midrange and legacy, and now virtual x86 environments for customers
with multi-tiered applications running in complex, hybrid IT environments.”

"We are pleased to see SunGard deliver a high-value disaster recovery to
the cloud service using VMware vCenter Site Recovery Manager. As VMware
customers virtualize more of their business and mission critical
applications, there’s an increased need for faster, more reliable
disaster recovery solutions,” said John Gilmartin, vice president,
Storage and Availability, VMware. “The cloud is a particularly good fit
for disaster recovery services because the cost of the recovery
infrastructure can be shared between many
customers. SunGard Recover2Cloud for vCenter SRM™ enables reliable,
secure and cost effective disaster recovery as-as-service.”
