Bluelock Portfolio™ for Recovery
Proof of recovery is a click away
A Single Consolidated Recovery Portal – Available Anywhere
Bluelock wants you to have complete confidence in your IT systems availability, which is why we’ve created Bluelock Portfolio™, a consolidated dashboard for your entire recovery environment. Fully mobile and available anywhere with an internet connection, Bluelock Portfolio means that recovery, testing, security and documentation is always just a click away.
With at-a-glance service reporting and intelligent alerts, you can rest assured that your solution fits within budget, is secure and will work exactly the way you expect.
Real-Time Awareness to Ensure Successful Failover
Bluelock Portfolio™ delivers business intelligence, so you can make actionable decisions for the future of your business. Our proprietary Recovery Health™ Score is a feature that calculates how your company’s Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS) solution will perform during failover. We measure and translate raw recovery metrics into an easy-to-understand status, so that you can predict your recoverability at any given point in time.
Our color-coded indicators are updated in real-time and based on critical recovery metrics. You can even compare your current score with a 3-month average. Want notifications of your status? You can set thresholds to receive HeadsUp Alerts via email if there is a change to your environment. These alerts also include remediation suggestions for your convenience.
Two Approaches for an Outstanding Experience
For both beginning and seasoned DR professionals, you can determine Bluelock’s level of involvement to fulfill the disaster recovery strategy that you want for your team. Bluelock Portfolio facilitates your preference, so you’ll always receive the right approach for success.
- Assisted Experience: Bluelock provides you with training, tools, templates and support to perform DR activities yourself. If you need assistance at any point, we jump in to meet your needs.
- Managed Experience: Bluelock performs testing, updates your playbook and handles change management on your behalf. We manage your DR end-to-end and you can confirm how we’re doing at any time.
Whether you prefer an assisted or managed service model from Bluelock, you can adjust your level of engagement in Portfolio to receive only the information that is most relevant to you. Company executives can choose to access a consolidated overview of your solutions and spending to confirm their investment is working, while IT professionals can drill down to view detailed information about each tier to ensure resources are allocated appropriately.
