Neverfail debuted its Neverfail Continuous Availability Director. Part of the Neverfail suite, the Continuous Availability Director is a centralized management console for Neverfail implementations, which enables a business-centric view of high availability and disaster recovery across systems, processes, and services that are dependent upon multiple applications.

Eliminating down time for end users and business-critical systems requires full protection and management across all key application servers. However, traditional solutions to manage and protect availability of these systems have been complex and time consuming because each application server must be managed and protected independently. Neverfail Continuous Availability Director solves this problem by providing a single point of management and control for all business-critical systems.

Through centralized monitoring, management, and configuration for all business-critical systems and underlying application servers, Neverfail Continuous Availability Director provides a business-centric view with a user interface that lets organizations visualize availability at the group level. Now they can view availability by business process (manufacturing, quality assurance), business system (SharePoint, mobile messaging), business service (accounting, payroll processing), or organization structure (London office, Media division, Finance Dept.).

Neverfail Continuous Availability Director sits on top of Neverfail's Application-Aware Management Framework (AMF), which controls how continuous availability is optimized for different applications. The Continuous Availability Director's centralized management console adds a layer of business-level insight into application availability, including:

  • A business-centric view of business systems, underlying application servers and their interdependencies
  • Centralized global health status (alerts, alarms, etc.)
  • Detailed graphical representation of switchover, failover status progress
  • Simplified roll-up status of rules and events through collapsible display options (for memory, disk, processor, etc.)
  • Simplified visualization and configuration of alerts

Neverfail Continuous Availability Director is available now as part of the Neverfail Continuous Availability Suite. More information is available at www.neverfailgroup.com.
