Storage Virtualization

Application protection consists of protection of the application itself and data protection.

With LifeKeeper® for Data Protection, High Availability Clustering und Disaster Recovery your IT can grow flexible with the requirements to availability to performance and application.
The possibility to implement more than 2 nodes and active/active configurations allows an optimum in hardware performance.
By means of extra tools (Application Recovery Kits) for different IT-structures the smooth integration of standard applications and custom-made applications takes place in the LifeKeeper. To this structures also belong local and remote installations, so computer centers in different places can be integrated into the LifeKeeper Cluster. 

Concepts for storage virtualization provide solutions, that fund storage systems, that increase flexibility in ressource management and built data replication. Additionally single operations can be simplified and be upgraded by different features like backup-scenarios. Such a product is SANsymphony™ by DataCore™ Software.
