To be able to virtually shadow the key servers so that if we have a hardware failure, we have a virtual copy ready to go, is just great.

ChallengeSitting smack in the middle of a hurricane zone, The Florida Aquarium feared a storm like Katrina or Sandy might cripple its infrastructure. Comprehensive disaster recovery planning led the aquarium to Dell AppAssure.
SolutionWith its virtual hot standby, Dell AppAssure gave the aquarium staff peace of mind that in the event of a natural disaster, all machines and data would be available at the flip of a switch.
Benefits• Virtual hot standby with push button failure
• Near-zero recovery point objective (RPO) with backup-window elimination
• Forever incremental for comprehensive data compliance
• Item-level restores go from 1 hour to 5 minutes
• Cost savings on staff time, hardware purchases and storage space
