Azaleos Offers 'Full Fidelity' Disaster Recovery Solution

A firm in Redmond, Washington is claiming it can deliver 99.999 percent uptime on Microsoft Exchange Server with a new service offering available immediately. Here's the surprise – it's not Microsoft.

Azaleos Corp.'s new offering provides customers with the option of buying a dual-site disaster recovery solution that protects customers from losing any messages or data if one of its two servers completely fails.

Dubbed Azaleos Full Fidelity Disaster Recovery, the offering provides an additional layer of fault tolerance over its OneServer "Exchange appliance," which already features redundant dual-processor servers in the same rack.

The new offering goes a step further by locating two Azaleos OneServers at different sites, and providing the ability to get back up and running immediately in the event of a crash or other problem, and then to quickly recover any dropped messages since the last full back-up was done between them – typically a couple of hours.

Azaleos surfaced a year ago when it introduced its OneServer and OneStop subscription management service.

Each OneServer the customer purchases is deployed on the customer's network, behind the customer's firewall, and works with the Azaleos' OneStop remote monitoring and patch management subscription service, according to the company. Azaleos OneStop provides 24/7 monitoring, maintenance and management.

OneServer is built on top of Microsoft Windows Server 2003 and Exchange 2003 using server hardware from Dell and HP. Instead of two, the rack contains three dual-processor servers, two running Exchange Server 2003 (one in hot standby) and the other functioning as an Active Directory domain controller.
