Replicate Technologies is leaving stealth mode today with the launch of its first product, Replicate Datacenter Analyzer (RDA). You can get a free trial here.
Their website says:
RDA enables datacenter administrators to prevent downtime by providing predictive fault identification and prescriptive guidance for fault resolution. Available as an OVF virtual appliance for VMWare Infrastructure 3, you can be up and running in less than 30 minutes.
Key features of RDA 1.0 include:
- Active Discovery – which deploys virtual appliances to discover and model the combined virtual and physical datacenter systems, assessing the unified infrastructure for configuration fault issues using more than 20 pre-packaged analyses for datacenter security, resiliency and connectivity.
- Predictive Analysis – which discovers and diagnoses latent issues in the unified datacenter using a catalog of Knowledge Modules that encode best practice and expert guidance for the resolution of identified faults.
- Resolution Guidance – which delivers expert guidance, based on RDA’s Knowledge Modules, in the form of drill-down analysis which highlights the root problem, in order to quickly identify and prioritize important issues and expedite repair.
- Knowledge Modules – which includes modules covering Ethernet which can prove security isolation and validate resiliency in physical and virtual environments; Host Configuration for service console firewall, iSCSI NIC and physical cabling; and, VM migration for maintenance mode, hot and cold migration and Distributed Resource Scheduler (DRS) mobility. The catalog of Knowledge Modules will be continually expanded and updated.
