Technical Specifications

PlateSpin® Protect is business continuity and disaster recovery software that protects physical and virtual workloads (operating systems, middleware, and data) by using virtualization technology. If there is a production server outage or disaster, a virtualized replica of a workload can be rapidly powered on within the target container (a VM host), and continue to run as normal until the production environment is restored.
