Use Cases

Live Test Failure and Recovery

Emulate failure and test recovery of protection groups or entire sites without disrupting production workflow. Review detailed reports of each test to determine the recovery point and recovery time for each protection group.

Configure Protection Groups

VM and data volumes within multi-tiered applications can be configured in Protection Groups to ensure failover and recovery in a mutually consistent fashion and point in time.

Preserve Changes During Failback

Preserve all changes made at the primary/secondary site during failover operations with Live Failback. Users may also perform an automated check and repair any corrupted blocks on the storage systems at the primary site before issuing the Failback command.

Customize Check Point Intervals

Configure your data for Cloud backup intervals from your production site based on your needs– in seconds, minutes or hours.

Automate Group Recovery

Runbook Automation orchestrates the recovery of groups of IT systems that have complex interdependencies, including ordered bring-up and re-configuration of protected IT systems in the CenturyLink Cloud and failback to the production site.
