Overall Satisfaction with Carbonite Availability

Carbonite Availability is installed on primary systems and the secondary target and creates a replica of the primary system at the secondary location. The problem which we were working to counter is the system crash or failure. Carbonite Availability has helped to solve this problem in a very effective way. When a failure occurs, the backup secondary systems are triggred and they go live and DNS re-routes and voila everything is back to as it was a few minutes back. We use this to protect most of our critical data systems, helping in disaster management which is part of our risk mitigation plan or process

Pros

  • Seamless switch to secondary systems
  • Data protection
  • Disaster management

Cons

  • Timing to switch between can be improved

  • Data replication is easier between our physical and virtual systems
  • Time consumed while restarting the servers

As stated the timing of switch can be improved as well as some work on user interface to make it more and more user friendly.
