PlateSpin Protect is business continuity and disaster recovery software that replicates and rapidly recovers workloads (operating systems along with their applications and data). In the event of a production server outage or disaster, workloads are rapidly powered on and continue to run as normal until the production environment is restored.
PlateSpin Protect uses operating system virtualization as the mechanism underlying its workload protection functionality. This mechanism provides you the capability to rapidly recover a workload and requires that you have an existing VM host (a VM container).
As part of the protection workflow, PlateSpin Protect creates a failover workload (a virtual replica of your production workload) and regularly updates it at configurable intervals. If your production workload goes offline, you can fail it over to the VM replica, which takes over the business services of the failed workload. You can then fail this workload back to either its original or to a completely new infrastructure, physical or virtual.
