AvailabilityGuard NXG

Resilience Assurance for Hybrid IT Environments

IT Outages and Data Loss Can Be Prevented

Detect single points of failure and misconfigurations across all IT infrastructure layers

Achieve Continuous Resilience Assurance

Continuity Software’s AvailabilityGuard NXG™ solution employs automatic, proactive risk detection methods that help organizations run smoothly and avoid unplanned downtime, outages and data loss.

  • Proactively detects single points of failure that affect entire IT stacks before they impact business

  • Expensive service disruptions and costly firefighting are prevented.

  • Compares the configurations in your environment against a deep knowledge base of nearly 8000 industry and vendor best-practices

  • identifies configuration errors and single points of failure

IT quality and agility are improved, data is protected and most importantly, business continuity is maintained.

AvailabilityGuard NXG helps make IT work – ALL THE TIME

  • Automatic daily verification of Production, HA & DR systems
  • Validates compliance with vendor best practices
  • Validates that HA systems are always fail-over ready
  • Validates that Production and DR are always in sync
  • Clear visibility into RPO and other resilience metrics

How AvailabilityGuard NXG Works

  • Collects configuration data from all infrastructure layers – agentless and non-intrusive

  • Detects single points-of failure and other configuration errors
  • Prescribes fixes to prevent future outages, integrating with existing management systems
  • Visualizes the resiliency of systems and tracks successful resolution of potential risks

AvailabilityGuard NXG helps make IT work – ALL THE TIME

Continuous & Proactive IT Resilience Assurance

  • leads to improved and more efficient IT infrastructure as risks are resolved in a timely manner

Support for Hybrid, On-Prem & Multi-Cloud IT Environments

  • meets the challenges of ever more complex IT environments that can include legacy (on-premise) and private cloud

Deep Knowledge

  • information gathered in the scan is compared against a vast knowledge base of nearly 8,000 industry, vendor and community-driven best practices

Visibility & Control

  • IT teams gain visibility and control in three major ways, controlling:

  • deviations from best practices are discovered
  • a clear, intuitive dashboard provides an enterprise-wide view of resilience including drill-down ability
  • automatic resilience validation becomes an integral part of CI/CD and DevOps processes

“We are able to identify the possible risks in our current IT operations strategy, making it easier for us to anticipate them and establish proactive measures…”

Antonio Castillo, BBVA Bank

“We liked Continuity Software’s approach. Their solution is vendor-agnostic and uses their “secret weapon” – a huge knowledge base of technology vendors’ best practices together with input from the user community. This is unique in the field. “

Stephan Haeusler, Swisscom
