HP's Helion Continuity Services already provides cloud-based disaster recovery as a service offering improved recovery times and reduced data loss at a lower total cost.
The service now supports Linux physical clusters, including Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Oracle Real Application Clusters (RAC), as well as storage area network (SAN)-based data stores
Previously, support was limited to Linux servers and physical and virtual Windows servers and clusters.
HP Enterprise Services Asia Pacific and Japan general manager of workload and cloud George Yammouni said "The adoption of cloud technology has brought organisations a tremendous amount of innovation, flexibility and agility in how they consume IT services, but not all cloud services from the various vendors are built with continuity and resiliency as a part of their core DNA.
"As we continue to grow our HP Helion managed portfolio of services, we believe that continuity should be a core feature for every business who utilises the cloud and that clients should demand that their cloud partner needs to prepare them for the worst case scenario."
