April 1 '08: In a press release, Northeast Utility announced it would begin to use the RecoverGuard disaster management and recovery software and database build by Continuity Software. Officials at Northeast Utility said they were looking to incorporate a solution which could link databases using Unix and Windows servers with databases ranging from Oracle, Microsoft SQL and Sybase.q
"Because Northeast Utilities' IT environment was so large," the utility company said, "interdependent and mission-critical, it was not able to simulate an accurate (disaster recovery) DR test scenario by shutting its systems down cold. In other words, in the real world there is no such thing as a 'graceful shutdown' during a true disaster event."The utility company continued, "Once deployed, RecoverGuard scanned Northeast Utilities' open systems DR environment nightly, ensuring that no inadvertent configuration changes might adversely affect its recoverability status. When an issue was detected, RecoverGuard delivered an instantaneous alert, allowing Northeast Utilities to take immediate action and ensure ongoing data protection, disaster recoverability and business continuity."
