Visibility Breeds Confidence
You can’t predict the cause of your next application failure, but with Bluelock’s Recovery-as-a-Service, the cause doesn’t matter. Recovery-as-a-Service protects against wide-scale outages, local hardware failures, malicious attacks and even the most common root cause: human error.
Bluelock RaaS Portfolio gives you complete visibility into your recovery environment, so you can see if any of your workloads are at risk, when you need to increase bandwidth and what your RPO is at any given time.
It’s not just about knowing your true costs, it’s about knowing that the recovery solution you invest in will work, no matter what.
Control Your Risk
When viewing your recovery environment in Bluelock Portfolio, customers will see their
CPU at Recovery, Memory at Recovery and Storage at Recovery resources at a glance.
When viewing 4-Series environments in Bluelock Portfolio, any resources in green are guaranteed at recovery and what users can expect to be available upon recovery. If, however, users see a red bar, that represents risk exposure. Resources beyond the contracted amount are not guaranteed and may not be available at recovery. This red/green bar shows users when they may need to increase their contract to minimize their risk exposure.
The Storage at Recovery graph provides additional visibility into the recovery environment. The green shaded area represents the portion of your allocated storage reserved for the “journal”. The journal is a component of the 4-Series Virtual Datacenters that tracks and saves changes to your VM over time, allowing you to recover from your choice of past recovery points, not just the latest instance. This unique features helps in the event of applications corruption, viruses and malicious attacks that would otherwise be copied directly into your recovery environment. Instead, you can choose a point in time that was not yet impacted by the event. You may adjust the size of your journal based on your preferences.
Bluelock’s 4004 and 4504 RaaS Virtual Datacenters offer a targeted 30-minute
Recovery Point Objective. At a glance, users will be able to see if they are within that target recovery window.
When users click onto the interactive RPO by VPG graph, they are able to see each VM’s unique RPO, by minutes. This allows users to identify if any applications are exposed to risk and out of RPO. By clicking, users can zoom into a particular time point and identify specifically which applications are at risk and which points in time the applications are pushing more data than their bandwidth can handle.
If an application is out of the target RPO, customers can work with the Bluelock support team to ensure the app is properly protected.
Return On Your Investment
No application is an island, and no business unit has an unlimited budget. RaaS users can track their estimated monthly protection costs, by application or VPG, in the VPG Details graph.
This prediction tool allows users to understand exactly what resources their application is currently consuming under protection, and what they can expect on their bill at the end of the month.
Historical and past billing reports can be accessed in the cost analysis tool on the Bluelock Portfolio home page.
