Continuum Recover, a ConnectWise solution

Continuum is well suited for an MSP who has several clients running backups. Everyone knows how important backups are. Having Continuum Recover helps eliminate the need for a full-time employee to check backups. Backups can take a long time to check daily manually, but Continuum Recover helps eliminate that need.

Sungard Availability Services DRaaS

Sungard seems to be well-suited for those companies still doing traditional disaster recovery - replicating data (or shipping tapes), building out the servers/mainframe/AS400, restoring data/databases, then loading the applications and testing. We have limited exposure to their cloud offerings.For the most part, they can also take on or assist in the initial builds of client environments - we used them for building the OS only.

Pros

Continuum Recover, a ConnectWise solution

No answers on this topic

Sungard Availability Services DRaaS

  • Sungard does a good job dispersing risk. Even though the equipment we subscribe to is also subscribed by many other companies, they do a good job spreading those subscriptions across multiple industries and geographies, so that it is highly likely they'd have the equipment you'd need in the event of declaring a disaster
  • Sungard has also done a good job working with us to break out costs, so that we are able to allocate our invoices amongst multiple products and clients.
  • Sungard does a good job with security - physical security in the facilities, ensuring our interactions with them through their help desk or portal are secure, maintaining good access control, and providing us with options for ensuring our data is encrypted during testing activities

Sungard Availability Services DRaaS

  • Some facilities are located in inner-cities - while easily accessible by everyone, sometimes environment leaves something to be desired.
  • Limited expertise in Solaris (Sun) regarding their managed services offerings.
  • Often times a laborious process to engage someone to do hands/feet work.

Continuum Recover, a ConnectWise solution 7.0
Based on 2 answers
Support is pretty good. The issue is that they don't have any SLA so they get to you whenever. Though, if you hound them, they usually bump you up in the chain and get back to you. Their techs are fairly knowledgeable. Occasionally the first level support isn't the best, but once it bumps up to the next level, they are good.

Alternatives Considered

Continuum Recover, a ConnectWise solution

We evaluated Infrascale, and that was a really bad product. When it worked, it was fine. But when it didn't, nobody knew what was going on. Seeing green checkmarks usually means good, but not with Infrascale. You really had to dig into each job to see if they were successful. There was way too much time consumption. That issue is eliminated with Continuum Recover

I had used IBM Disaster Recovery Services in a previous job. While I found IBM much quicker to work with in terms of updating our equipment reservations, I've found Sungard much easier to conduct testing with. Specifically, they are much more adaptable and client-focused.

Return on Investment

Continuum Recover, a ConnectWise solution

  • Less employee workload.
  • Increased productivity.

Sungard Availability Services DRaaS

  • ROI is a difficult concept regarding BCP or DR, since most dollars spent towards this are simply regarded as 'insurance' rather than an investment.
  • Our ability to test and share those results with many of our clients is probably the biggest non-monetary return on investment we get.
