AXXANA Shows DR Black Box

TEL AVIV and DALLAS -- Axxana emerged from stealth mode” today at Storage Networking World with the introduction of its unique Enterprise Data Recording (EDR) technology. Axxana’s innovation is the first-ever to enable 100% disaster recovery with no data loss, over any geographical distance; all with significant cost savings. Axxana’s first EDR system combines the data-recovery certainties of synchronous replication with the distance and cost advantages of asynchronous replication. The result is a complete shift in the way enterprises will architect their data-center strategies.

Until today, existing data protection methods – such as backup/restore, replication or CDP – have been bound by same limitation: all data that required protection had to be transported out of the primary data center prior to a disaster. In contrast, Axxana’s technology completely protects enterprise data inside a “disaster-proof” EDR device, an enterprise equivalent to the indestructible “black box” flight-data recorders used to recover post-crash aircraft data.

“Axxana’s announcement of ‘EDR’ as a new domain in replication-enabled Disaster Recovery is intriguing,” noted IDC Research Manager, Noemi Greyzdorf. “This new concept of an Enterprise Black Box may force us to totally reevaluate how data centers ensure zero data loss and full data recovery over traditionally long distances.”
