Sanovi’s IT Disaster Recovery Management (DRM) Enterprise Software

In most DR environments, business continuity planners and IT managers have limited visibility into IT Recovery Readiness. The collection of heterogeneous databases, storage systems, servers, and replication solutions found in today’s data centers, each with discrete management tools, makes it difficult to ensure IT Recovery Readiness. Driven to meet regulatory compliance and RTO/RPO service levels, IT organizations are forced to conduct periodic testing of DR solutions, which is both time consuming and error-prone.

The Sanovi IT Disaster Recovery Management Software Advantage

With Sanovi, customers will be confident of their ability to recover from outages, whether disaster related or infrastructure-related failures. It enables them to:

  • Gain real time insight into application data loss and recovery time
  • Validate complex recovery for multi-vendor physical/virtual environments
  • Rapidly identify causes of recovery test failures
  • Automate redundant, resource-intensive, and costly DR procedures
  • Design recovery workflows to meet service levels and RPO/RTO objectives
  • Eliminate operational disruptions with offsite recovery preparation and testing
  • Perform recovery audit reporting and documentation

Sanovi DRM™ gives customers the confidence that their DR infrastructure will be ready when they need it. Sanovi DRM enables customers to be better-equipped to meet recovery service level objectives, ensure application availability, automate time-consuming DR testing, and comply with regulatory requirements.

The Sanovi DRM Approach

The core of the Sanovi DRMTM offering leverages a recovery dependency database and recovery automation library, built around recovery solution signature objects, which are specific to various vendor products. The recovery dependency database supports a wide range of architectures (active/active or active/passive clustering, physical or virtual machines, and others) and can be expanded through the use of field-defined DR solution signatures, providing end users and channel partners the flexibility to manage any DR solution.

Sanovi’s technology uses recovery solution signatures for well-defined recovery architectures based on the following:

  • Array-based storage-centric replication leveraging products from EMC, IBM, HDS, and other major array manufacturers
  • Log-based replication leveraging mainstream database products such as Oracle, SQL Server, IBM DB2, Sybase, and other major providers

Customers can choose from pre-existing recovery solution signature templates for mainstream recovery products. They can also create their own custom recovery solution signatures to monitor host or network-based recovery solutions. Customers can also import their existing run books into the Sanovi framework, and then evolve and fine-tune recovery workflows from there. An important design tenet of DRM is to be product and vendor agnostic, providing customers the maximum flexibility in accommodating their existing configurations and giving them the freedom to adopt new DR technologies as they become available.

Customers have the option of deploying it all at once or seamlessly integrating new modules into an existing deployment with a simple license key upgrade. All modules share the same architecture built on CIM, SMI-S, and Web services for simple and scalable management.

Continuous Manufacturing

Sanovi DRM for ERP Applications

ERP applications such as SAP provide solutions for several vertical-industry as well as cross-industry solutions. Enterprises use SAP for production planning, purchasing, logistics, inventory management, customer service, and finance. Each of these applications is critical to the running of the business; hence they need a disaster recovery (DR) solution that will work when needed. There are several considerations that have influenced the design and implementation of a DR solution for SAP. A couple of key considerations are:

  • Recovery Point Objective (RPO): Organizations set RPO goals to determine how much data they can afford to lose before it starts adversely impacting their business. The RPO primarily influences the choice of the data replication technology to protect the database in use with the SAP application.
  • Recovery Time Objective (RTO): This is the amount of time available to bring up the application at the DR site. The number of actions, the complexity involved, and the expertise required to suitably execute each action determine the achievable RTO for an SAP application

The SAP solution supports a distributed architecture that can be tuned to meet customers’ requirements of scale and performance. There are three logical layers that make up the SAP solution:

  • Presentation layer
  • Application layer
  • Database layer

The presentation layer is typically a web-based interface or SAP Graphic User Interface (GUI) client that runs on an end user workstation. The application layer executes the business logic, manages client transactions, runs reports, and coordinates access to the database. The database layer is an off-the-shelf RDBMS and stores business-generated data.

How Sanovi DRM works

Sanovi DRM provides an application defined continuity based solution to address the various stages of the SAP DR life cycle. A typical SAP DR life cycle solution includes:

  • Configuration/provisioning
  • On-going monitoring of data replication, RPO, and health
  • Regular DR drills
  • Failover and recovery at the time of primary outage
  • Reporting on compliance and deviations

Unique Features And Benefits Of Sanovi DRManagement For SAP

DR Health and RPO Dashboard

Once a DR solution has been implemented, IT operations do not have the visibility to be confident that the solution is meeting the set RPO metrics. Sanovi DRM software provides a single dashboard that gives IT operations the required visibility into the SAP application RPO and the DR health status. Customers will no longer be caught unawares and risk a failure during application recovery at the DR site.

Flip-of-switch Failover and Drill

Application recovery has the highest success rate if it is not dependent solely on the right person doing everything correctly. Sanovi DRM provides an application-aware workflow engine that automates execution of the various DR actions required to failover and bring up the SAP on the DR site. Sanovi customers have consistently experienced over 70% reduction in the time required to perform DR drills that bring up the SAP application on DR as well as minimal dependency on experts.

Recovery Dependency Database

SAP applications have several critical sub-systems that must be up and available. For SAP to come up on the DR, the database, the central instance and all the dialogue instances must come up in an orderly manner; this is besides any networking and directory services recovery that must also be done. The bringing up and recovery of dependent sub-systems in an orderly manner is a huge challenge and currently requires manual co-ordination among various IT groups. Sanovi DRM provides the ability to maintain the required dependency relationship for SAP and the corresponding automation required to bring up the sub-systems in an orderly manner.

Compliance and Deviation Reports

Customers no longer have to manually compile DR drill reports, evidence of control for DR drills, and the number of times the SAP application deviated from its recovery objectives. Sanovi DRM provides reports that can be submitted to regulatory authorities and upper management and are also useful in performing capacity planning of the customer’s infrastructure. Through the reports, customers can easily detect where the bulk of the DR drill time was spent, the number of times the configured RPO value was exceeded in the last month, and which of the enterprise applications were tested in the last six months.

Rich eco-system to deploy and support Sanovi DRM

Sanovi works closely with several system integrators and services partners to deploy and support the Sanovi DRM solution across the manufacturing industry. This gives manufacturing companies the flexibility to zero in on a partner of their choice to deploy and manage the Sanovi DRM solution. Further, several service-related options to customize the product to meet specific needs or provide on-going operational support are also available through partners that have been well trained and hands on experienced, thus ensuring organizations maximize the benefits they can derive by deploying the Sanovi DRM solution.

Continuous Government

The importance of information technology has been understood by all, including governments, across the world. Today, several governments have initiated a number of e-governance projects to trigger the transition of governance from the traditional paper-centric world to the digital world. There are several complex projects that are changing the way we get our work done with the government, including the National Citizens’ Database, Passport and Immigration, Income Tax, and Land Records etc.

Given the scale and support that IT applications provide, it is important for projects to have an IT Disaster Recovery (DR) mechanism enabled right from the start. Given the scale and the heterogeneous nature of IT deployments, DR management software plays a very important role in ensuring that critical IT applications are able to recover within set recovery objectives and meet the citizens’ expectations from e-Governance services.

The Sanovi Solution for Govt/PSU

Sanovi’s Application Defined Continuity (ADC) Technology powered solutions enable the real time monitoring, automated testing and flip of switch failover-fall back operations whereby ensuring a robust and cost effective DR solution with increased operational efficiencies, reduced downtime and manpower. It also provides the resilience for these mission critical projects to have the flexibility to work across on premise and on Cloud models. This is the key reason behind the major government and public sector projects like Dubai Immigration, India Aadhaar, and APDRPs, for having Sanovi as their preferred choice for BCP/DR Management.

Sanovi DRM in eGovernance Projects

Sanovi has been selected for its DR Management capabilities in large and prestigious eGovernance projects such as Ministry of Power and Aadhar
