This means your customers can have complete confidence that their essential systems can continue to function remotely, without experiencing downtime, whilst traditional systems are fixed or restored.

Version 7.8 incorporates ‘Runbooks’ which ensures even faster recovery times for the end user and a simplified automation process that makes disaster recovery planning a simple task. The update also significantly improves production and test failover speed, allowing users to meet tight recovery time objectives (RTO) requirements and improve SLAs.
