Disaster recovery as a service partnership

Hewlett Packard : 20 November, 2014  (Company News)
HP Enterprise Services and Symantec have agreed on a joint system for Disaster Recovery as-a-service for HP Helion OpenStack
 Disaster recovery as a service partnership

Symantec and HP Enterprise Services have announced a joint partnership to develop a new Disaster Recovery as-a-Service (DRaaS) solution based on HP Helion OpenStack. The HP Helion and Symantec Continuity offering will help enterprise and SMB customers to minimize recovery times, data loss, and associated downtime costs.

The increased variance of enterprise data storage environments has created a need for a disaster recovery solution that works across multiple computing environments, including on-premises, public cloud and managed cloud. The HP/Symantec DRaaS solution will use HP’s enterprise cloud as the disaster recovery in order to deliver cost savings, automation and self-service user experience. The service will help customers achieve system and application recovery SLAs and meets industry standards for security.

“Partnering Symantec’s industry leading business continuity software with HP’s world class enterprise services will create a unique disaster recovery solution that will have a positive impact when any disruptive events occur,” said Doug Matthews, vice president, Information Availability, Symantec. “This collaboration will help our customers to protect their workloads no matter if they run on traditional IT or are hosted within HP Helion OpenStack-based cloud environments. This new DRaaS solution focuses on business continuity, failover and failback and will monitor the most widely used applications and databases in the market.”

When the new DRaaS product is made generally available in late 2015, co-delivery will be provided from both partners with client onboarding supported by joint teams. As part of the partnership, Symantec provides the DRaaS software solution, while HP provides the end-to-end service based on the underlying disaster recovery facilities, infrastructure, and operations team. The new DRaaS solution will run on an HP Helion OpenStack-based cloud environment and will support replication, recovery and automated failover/failback of client IT whether it’s traditional IT on-premises, managed cloud, private cloud or public cloud.

“HP clients want to use cloud as disaster recovery target for cost savings and operational efficiencies, while helping customers to achieve recovery SLAs for systems and applications and providing a simplified experience,” said Jim Fanella, vice president, Workload and Cloud, HP Enterprise Services. “Bringing a DRaaS solution that is powered by Symantec and HP Enterprise Services, using HP Helion, will give both companies a strong go-to-market advantage in this fast growing market category.”

The DRaaS solution will support and address industry specific client standards for disaster recovery, such as PCI in the retail industry, HIPAA in the healthcare industry, or FedRAMP and FISMA in the US public sector.
