CloneManager

Online and Offline Replication and Migration

CloneManager is a system replication and migration software that creates identical copies of critical systems that can be instantly used in the event of a disaster.  

CloneManager provides continuous replication and migration for your entire estate, from legacy systems running on physical machines through to virtual and cloud environments, giving you confidence that your critical systems, operating systems and data will be protected in the event of a disaster.  

Benefit from CloneManager’s continuous replication, enhanced testing and failover and failback features to avoid disruption to your critical workloads, protect your systems and save resources and costs.  

Enable our new block based transport mechanism to significantly lower RPOs when compared to our traditional file based transport mechanism.

CloneManager offline replication allows you to migrate your existing physical, virtual or cloud machine directly to a disk inside Microsoft Azure blob storage, Oracle Cloud blob storage, Amazon S3 storage or any other S3 compatible storage location. Saving you the hassle and associated costs of a target machine.

Here’s how our CloneManager Online software helped our US healthcare customer stay operational with continual replication for DR. You can download this case study as a pdf here.

Read here how Tata Consultancy used CloneManager to migrate over six hundred systems into a new virtual environment.

HighlightsFeaturesBenefits
Live replication & periodic syncsReal-time replication of live systems and fully automated scheduled periodic syncs between the source and target system; only changed data will be copiedReal-time and up-to-date system replications. Critical workloads and systems are thoroughly resilient to system disruption
Offline replicationClone directly to a target disk instead of a running virtual or physical machineSaves you the hassle and cost of maintaining a full target system
File or block based replicationToggle between traditional file or new block based replicationBlock based replication can significantly lower your RPOs when compared to file based replication
Flexible replication targetsReplicate to a range of system targets, including physical, virtual, and cloud environmentsReinstate vital systems in a matter of minutes. Flexibility and control over where you move/ store your servers
Enhanced testingAbility to create a test environment even on physical systems without interrupting continuous replication.Ability to run DR testing on the target system without interrupting replication
Failover and failbackMonitoring of the source system to automatically failover if an outage is detectedThis significantly improves system availability.
Replicated system is identicalReplicate entire workloads including: OS, applications, data and configuration informationAssurance that the replicated machine is identical to the original
Fast performanceMeet time/ data restore objectives and minimize impact on production systems with bandwidth throttling Minimize recovery time objectives (RTOs)
Point in time snapshotsIf corrupt data is replicated to the target system, simply roll back to the last successful snapshot Improve recovery point objectives (RPOs)
Simple deployment and remote managementManage multiple, simultaneous system replications on site, or remotelyManage the protection of multiple systems, environments and operating systems from a single interface
Disaster recovery testingSimulate a DR scenario by failing over live systems and instantly powering on their Hot Standby counterpartsMeet regulatory compliance and provide reassurance that systems are recoverable
Centralised managementDeployment, configuration and licensing from a simple, intuitive interfaceDashboards provide an overview of replication and migration processes

CloneManager is the best product I have found for server disaster recovery,
by keeping the DR side up-to-date with the production servers.

Dissimilar Environments

With our unique dissimilar environment technology, you can replicate to many physical, cloud or virtual environments.

Sync

Transfer the bulk of your data in the first replication followed by frequent fast “syncs” to keep your target up to date without performing another full replication.

Secure

Enable encryption to ensure your data is replicated securely.
