Replicate Technologies Introduces First Solution to Predict and Prevent Faults in Unified Datacenter Infrastructure

MENLO PARK, Calif. – November 10, 2008 – Replicate Technologies today announced the general availability of its first product, Replicate Datacenter Analyzer™ (RDA) 1.0. Leveraging server virtualization to provide a breakthrough approach to fault management, RDA 1.0 ends the conventional break-fix cycle by using both preventive and remediation analysis to avoid and solve configuration errors in virtualized datacenters. It is the only product available today that provides a unified view of the dynamic datacenter, and can predict and prevent faults before they cause downtime.

A well-run datacenter has always required well-managed configuration. Virtualization not only introduces a new layer to configure, but also places new and unique demands on the cross-functional configuration of servers, networks and storage. Recent industry surveys on datacenter operation and management practices indicate that more than 60 percent of unplanned downtime incidents are due to configuration errors – problems of configuring or provisioning infrastructure due to cross-functional misalignment or human error. Further, each fault of this type results in an average of four hours of downtime, spent in fault identification, analysis, solution determination and remediation.

“While delivering many benefits, server virtualization has also created a new set of issues for enterprise IT to address,” said Rich Miller, CEO of Replicate Technologies. “Our goal with RDA is to use virtualization technologies to address those unintended consequences – to change the way one operates, administers and manages the modern datacenter. Using predictive fault identification, diagnosis and remediation guidance, RDA eliminates datacenter faults before they generate outages.”

Key innovations of RDA 1.0 include:

  • Active Discovery – which deploys virtual appliances to discover and model the combined virtual and physical datacenter systems, assessing the unified infrastructure for configuration fault issues using more than 20 pre-packaged analyses for datacenter security, resiliency and connectivity.
  • Predictive Analysis – which discovers and diagnoses latent issues in the unified datacenter using a catalog of Knowledge Modules that encode best practice and expert guidance for the resolution of identified faults.
  • Resolution Guidance – which delivers expert guidance, based on RDA’s Knowledge Modules, in the form of drill-down analysis which highlights the root problem, in order to quickly identify and prioritize important issues and expedite repair.
  • Knowledge Modules – which includes modules covering Ethernet which can prove security isolation and validate resiliency in physical and virtual environments; Host Configuration for service console firewall, iSCSI NIC and physical cabling; and, VM migration for maintenance mode, hot and cold migration and Distributed Resource Scheduler (DRS) mobility. The catalog of Knowledge Modules will be continually expanded and updated.

RDA 1.0 is a virtual appliance that works in VMware Infrastructure 3 environments, offers a web-based user interface and integrates with VMware VirtualCenter.

Redhot Future Of IT Part I :Marketing yourself as IT professional

I had promised about the "RedHot IT Future Series" and so we discuss here how you should market yourself EFFECTIVELY as an IT professional in this new (and dangerous) web age! Web is the place where you're a hero today and villain tomorrow. While there are lots of professionals who are active on the web, not all are enjoying a good reputation as they got "personal" with others and got into a cockfight. The passive IT professional has nothing to lose but nothing to gain at all!

I know "marketing" might seem as a greasy term but the idea is to have the truth about you out there. You know you're a good person and your family knows that you're really smart person but the rest of the world doesn't!

So the question is how do I market myself on the web as a true "nouveau IT professional". A guy who companies will be tempted to pick up the phone as say "Hey, we wanna talk with you. Can you fly over to Palo Alto (or Guatemala or Johan…
