SunGard Intros Virtual Server Services

WAYNE, Pa. -- SunGard Availability Services, the pioneer and leading provider of enterprise-wide information availability, today announced Virtual Server Replication Services, an AdvancedRecovery solution for organizations using virtualization technology to run their business applications. The offering provides companies an affordable way to implement a comprehensive second site recovery program for virtual and physical IT environments, with failover within six hours.
This offering is part of the recently announced SunGard and VMware partnership, where the companies are working together to deliver a new breed of fully managed virtualization-based services giving companies more AdvancedRecovery options to help meet todays aggressive availability goals.

“We turned to virtualization because our data center faces a constant need to add more servers while also being limited by the physical space available without expensive expansion,” said Mark Zwartz, manager of information technologies at JMB Companies. “While it took us one year to get our high availability site up and running, SunGard came in and had our virtual recovery site ready to go in three weeks for our mission-critical applications. This experience demonstrates the value companies looking at virtualized recovery solutions can gain by tapping SunGard’s expertise rather than handling internally.”
