Illuminator Monitors Data Protection

SAN MATEO, Calif. -- Illuminator Inc., a leading provider of recovery management software, unveiled today Illuminators Virtual Recovery Engine™. Illuminator continuously monitors customers’ data protection processes across replication, snapshots and backup technologies to ensure applications, databases and file systems can be recovered according to the business recovery objectives.

Illuminator patent-pending Virtual Recovery Engine™ analyzes information from the application, database, system, storage and backup domains and builds a dynamic repository of all available recovery points. Through patent-pending real-time correlation, Illuminator evaluates the data protection process against hundreds of potential exposures previously identified at customer sites and encompasses application vendors’ data protection best practices. Illuminator automatically highlights recoverability risks in the application context enabling storage managers to take action according to business impact of the exposure.

"Taneja Group conducted detailed interviews with several early Illuminator customers in the financial services, telecommunication and high tech industries. The overwhelming feedback is that Illuminator’s technology and capabilities take enterprise recovery management into a whole new level", says Brad O’Neill, Senior Analyst and Consultant with Taneja Group. "For the first time enterprises are able to create a common, cross-functional view of their application recoverability, easily align protection with the value of business information and ensure the quality of their data protection processes. Illuminator’s intelligent cross-domain analysis help customers manage their large data protection investments, control spiraling IT costs and achieve disaster recovery readiness".
