High Availability and
 Disaster Recovery

Migrate, Run, and Recover Traditional Apps with Minimal Downtime

With current estimates placing the cost of downtime at around $300,000 per hour, enterprises are under increasing pressure to recover quickly from system failures. However, replicating and modernizing mission-critical workloads in an on-premises environment is costly, and rearchitecting these same applications in the cloud can take months.

Skytap Cloud is a high availability solution that lets you migrate traditional applications to the cloud unchanged and with minimal downtime.

Disaster Recovery in the Cloud

In disaster recovery architectures, resources are usually duplicated and replicated to a different datacenter and geographical region to ensure enough distance from the source of the failure. Skytap supports multiple disaster recovery solutions, depending on your current application location and business requirements. These include cold and warm off-site disaster recovery for applications running in your on-premises datacenter, as well as disaster recovery to an alternate region for applications running in Skytap.
