Xperia provides three HA/DR options for enterprise deployments of its Comprehensiv™ ERP and Xpressiv™ Business Intelligence Software platforms:

Cold - "Recovery on Demand" contract for customer to restore using local tape capacity with a 72-hour restore from receipt of backup tapes. This cold site offering features a low-cost entry point with additional usage-based costs for DR testing, recovery platforms and engineering services when required.

Warm - "iVault" contract providing iSeries daily replication of the customer’s system saves across a secure VPN to our recovery center. Designed with a 24-hour Recovery Time Objective (RTO), the warm site recovery architecture is ideal for companies requiring off-site replication and storage of their data for audit or recovery purposes.

Hot - "Recover Now" contract providing full iSeries transactional replication of the customer’s production LPAR across a secure VPN to a dedicated partition running in our recovery center. The Recover Now architecture is designed for companies with the strictest availability and recovery requirements typically providing customers with Recovery Time Objectives of 30 minutes or less.

Xperia has partnered with Lexington, KY based SIS, a recognized leader in Hosted Availability & Recovery Solutions. The SIS Managed Solutions Center facility is an SSAE16 designated, Tier 3 data-center providing Xperia’s clients with access to the most current IBM Power platforms, network security, and SaaS:Cloud solution infrastructure. SIS was the first North American provider to be awarded the IBM Cloud Infrastructure Certification, and at the time of the MSC’s opening, SIS was the only partner delivering IBM Intel, Power, and Storage platforms from one facility.

These new Xperia offerings will leverage SIS’ managed services and engineering teams to provide customized HA/DR services & support for Xperia customers in a secure and reliable data center.
