ATADATA Launches Groundbreaking Multi-Cloud Disaster Recovery Solution with ATAguard

With Immediate Support for AWS, ATAguard Is the Only Solution With the Ability to Failback to Any Source Environment

ATLANTA - June 1, 2017 - ATADATA today announced the launch of ATAguard, an automated disaster recovery (DR) solution enabling protection and recovery of servers and applications through standard IP connections. It is the only solution with the ability to failback to any physical, virtual or cloud environment, not just the original server location. The platform leverages proven replication technology to work on all physical, virtual and cloud machines across Windows and Linux with enterprise applications including SAP, Oracle and SQL use cases. ATAguard launches with support for AWS today, and additional platforms including Google Cloud Platform slated for support in the coming weeks.

ATAguard is integrated with ATAsphere, the company’s flagship borderless automation platform for managing, mapping and migrating any combination of enterprise workloads across hybrid IT and cloud, but now includes an enterprise class DR point solution for the public cloud. It is managed through ATAsphere’s central console and can be used in conjunction with ATADATA’s highly regarded discovery module, ATAvision, which allows for automatic creation of affinity-based protection groups so that when a failover occurs, all of the servers that make up the application stack are included, and not just the one failed instance.


“We deliver a true hybrid, high-performance service to our customers who count on us to move workloads across public clouds easily, quickly and without interruption,” said David McLaughlin, president at Andromeda3, a hybrid cloud provider for data centers. “We integrated ATAguard into our disaster recovery and support services because of the high levels of orchestration and automation it offers, as well as its unique and critical capability to execute on any combination of physical, virtual, private clouds and public clouds.”

Traditional DR is time-consuming and expensive, typically requiring different tools and manual-based DR testing that is frequently abandoned. With easy-to-use interfaces and the ability to certify recovery, ATAguard provides for an unprecedented level of automation. Customers can now replicate data to a warm standby instance in the cloud, reducing the infrastructure requirements of the recovery site, no matter which multi-cloud or hybrid cloud configuration they use. In the case of a service issue, such as an outage, ATAguard allows enterprise customers to be up and running in an instant, and eliminates the need for multiple expensive third-party DR solutions.

“Companies are increasingly recognizing the tremendous resiliency and performance offered by ATADATA’s managed workload mobility platform and point solutions, and there is demand for DR solutions to allow seamless failover to public cloud platforms with the orchestrated return back to on premises servers,” said Charles Wright, founder, CEO and CTO of ATADATA “With ATAguard, enterprise customers now have the ability to meet this challenge head-on, as they accelerate a path into the cloud.”

 For enterprise customers looking to protect their multi-cloud and hybrid cloud data, ATAguard provides a reliable server protection experience with complete backend disaster recovery services, allowing them to automatically failover, under compromised service scenarios, with minimum downtime and data loss. Its’ integration with ATAvision means the protection of a company’s entire application environment will be live and available during any kind of outage. For mission critical data and applications at the heart of enterprise, it provides customers with a near real-time replica, to the cloud, regardless of the complexity or combination of platforms served.

Benefits of ATAguard include:

  • Integrated agentless application discovery

  • Simplified DR reduces complexity and cost

  • Easy deployment enables secure, rapid protection

  • Direct data flow maximizes bandwidth-use and eliminates bottlenecks

  • Broad platform support eliminates needs for multiple tools
