80% of businesses affected by a major incident either never re-open or close within 18 months. And incidents of all kind happens - frequently, be they environmental, hardware faults or user-caused loss. In fact, human error is responsible for 40% of all data loss, as compared to just 29% for hardware or system failures; but many disaster recovery systems handle only the physical faults - and leave to external, third party add ons the management of resources.
NodeWeaver is designed to be descriptive - to specify a desired state, and leave to the system how to handle the “how”. This not only simplifies any management needs, but it also reduces the opportunity for user error. And thanks to the integrated service appliance, backups, snapshots and most state-preserving operations are handled in a totally automated way.
In addition to snapshots, NodeWeaver allows for replication among different physical locations, differentiated goals (for example, SSD only or cold storage) and a simple and easy allocation mechanism that respects quotas and limits to guarantee that users can’t expand their resource usage outside the prescribed bounds.
NodeWeaver manages in a single interface servers and desktop VMs out of the box, with dynamic optimal placement based on a sophisticated estimation of expected user experience.
