PlateSpin Forge is a consolidated recovery hardware appliance that protects physical and virtual workloads (operating systems, middleware, and data) by using embedded virtualization technology. If there is a production server outage or disaster, workloads can be rapidly powered on within the PlateSpin Forge recovery environment and continue to run as normal until the production environment is restored.
PlateSpin Forge enables you to:
Quickly recover workloads upon failure
Simultaneously protect multiple workloads (10 to 25, depending on the model)
Test the failover workload without interfering with your production environment
Fail back failover workloads to either their original or to completely new infrastructures, physical or virtual
Take advantage of existing external storage solutions, such as SANs
With internal, prepackaged storage, Forge has a total storage capacity of 3.5 terabytes, although the capacity is almost unlimited when external storage configurations are used by adding iSCSI or Fibre Channel cards.
