SunGard Offers Recover2Cloud

Disaster recovery specialty firm SunGard announced this week Recover2Cloud, a collection of managed recovery services that provide guarantees to recover your servers including replications and data vaults. The idea is to be completely up and running within a day after disaster strikes. SunGard operates dozens of offsite data centers around the world and is used by thousands of large corporations for disaster recovery; this is their first general-purpose virtual offering that will work across a broad set of enterprise applications.

As a complement to this offering the company also announced enhancements to its existing Enterprise Cloud Services. They can have two separate enterprise-grade cloud instances for geographically distributed load-balancing and continuous services. With this option, SunGard provides a secondary cloud site for recovery that is operational within four hours should the primary cloud site experience an outage. The four-hour downtime maximum is backed by a contractual service level agreement.

As part of this announcement, SunGard has added the ability to interconnect customer applications running on SunGard’s Enterprise Cloud Services with physical environments hosted in SunGard data centers. This capability allows customers to share data from legacy systems that still require dedicated hosting with cloud environments. The connectivity can be done within the same site (such as from a cloud environment to a dedicated ERP system or Oracle database within the same data center facility) or managed between multiple sites.

Both services are being shown at VMworld this week in Vegas. Recover2Cloud stars at $150 per server per month, depending on various options. Enterprise Cloud Services pricing varies depending on which services are included, the number of VMs, and the amount of storage required.
