Replicate Technologies announced the availability of its product Replicate Datacenter Analyzer. It is the only product available today that provides a unified view of the dynamic datacenter, and can predict and prevent faults before they cause downtime.
A well-run datacenter has always required well-managed configuration. Virtualization not only introduces a new layer to configure, but also places new and unique demands on the cross-functional configuration of servers, networks and storage.
Recent industry surveys on datacenter operation and management practices indicate that more than 60 percent of unplanned downtime incidents are due to configuration errors — problems of configuring or provisioning infrastructure due to cross-functional misalignment or human error. Further, each fault of this type results in an average of four hours of downtime, spent in fault identification, analysis, solution determination and remediation.
"While delivering many benefits, server virtualization has also created a new set of issues for enterprise IT to address," said Rich Miller, CEO of Replicate Technologies. "Our goal with RDA is to use virtualization technologies to address those unintended consequences — to change the way one operates, administers and manages the modern datacenter. Using predictive fault identification, diagnosis and remediation guidance, RDA eliminates datacenter faults before they generate outages."
