Holistic solution to protect the business-critical data of applications, databases and file systems
BusinessShadow® protects your applications, databases, file systems and data center sites. The solution reduces potential downtime and retrieves lost data within minutes, with the most recent, consistent set of data, without the need for restore procedures of backup media - easy to use and cost-effective.
Any major incident is a race against time where every second counts.
The innovative Libelle software solution BusinessShadow offers time-delayed data mirroring providing:
Best possible protection from the consequences of all types of errors: Hardware and logical failures (e.g. software and human error, faulty batch jobs, sabotage) as well as disasters (e.g. fire, flood, power blackout)
Continuous and consistent backup of your databases and file systems
Automated failover processes for applications and databases
|Shell-Interface with Fleet Management|
Amazingly fast error recovery after failover to the mirror system. Continue to work with the most recent, consistent set of data after a corruption.
Absolute distance independency between production and mirror system due to TCP/IP mirroring with minimum bandwidth requirement.
Automatic allocation of virtual IP addresses/hostnames to the mirror system
|Usability of the mirror systems for additional purposes (e.g. creation of system copies, backups, reportings) without any impact on the production systems during normal operations|
|Expedient hardware exploitation of mirror systems during normal operation in different, additional function (e.g. DEV or QS systems, additional application server for load balancing)|
Minimum of manual intervention on application level
Extremely easy operation via a graphical user interface (GUI). Specific administration know-how is not required.
|Standardized connection to monitoring tools, e.g. Icinga, Nagios, ...|
BusinessShadow is a unique combination of database mirroring (DBShadow®), flat file mirroring (FSShadow®) and IP-switching capabilities (SwitchApplication) and is seen as the “middle road” between SAN replication and standby databases.
- Same database management system and operating system versions on production and mirror system.
- Same storage capacity on production and mirror system.
- TCP/IP socket connections between production and mirror system (LAN or WAN).
- IP addresses available
