Axcient launches Linux support and enhanced orchestration for Fusion



Axcient, a vendor of disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS), expanded support on Thursday for Linux virtual machines on its Axcient Fusion platform, enabling IT teams to protect their critical Linux-based applications with sub-hour Recovery Point Objectives (RPOs) and Recovery Time Objectives (RTOs).

Optimized for VMware environments, Fusion optimizes, secures and replicates data to the cloud. From a single copy of data, users can spin up sandbox environments for testing and development, achieve long-term retention requirements; and ensure business remains resilient to software failures, natural disasters, or cyber threats.

Fusion empowers users to achieve IT resilience and agility without the bloat of additional on-premise infrastructure. It also instantly recovers individual applications, groups of applications, or data center in the cloud; and rapidly spin up sandbox environments in the cloud for on- demand testing and development.

Currently supporting Linux distributions, including Red Hat Enterprise, CentOS, and Oracle, as well as multiple versions of Microsoft Windows Server, Axcient Fusion delivers advanced orchestration through preconfigured runbooks that automate failover and recovery procedures to drastically reduce the time it takes to access services and applications in the cloud; and offers protection from denial of service (DoS) attacks to boost security features to protect against DoS attacks for applications running in the Axcient Cloud.

It also delivers user interface enhancements that simplify and optimize user experience with new reporting, lifecycle management and automation features; with active redundancy through high availability delivers zero downtime and no impact to RPOs and RTOs for software updates and upgrades.

“Linux is one of the most popular server operating systems, and we’re pleased to be able to offer enterprise-grade IT resilience and agility to Linux users at a fraction of the cost of legacy disaster recovery and data protection solutions,” said Axcient CEO Justin Moore. “With Linux powering everything from web servers and critical databases to modern applications such as the Internet of Things and Artificial Intelligence, it is more important than ever to keep systems resilient and secure. With Fusion, Linux users can keep the business running despite the array of hacks and potential disasters threatening the average company.”

In the coming months, Axcient will also be adding self-service failback, which enables administrators to failback applications from the cloud to their on-premise production environments with a single click.
