"Organizations must maintain the availability of IT assets and data in the event of planned or unplanned downtime. Business continuity solutions designed
to prevent downtime provide high availability to maintain operations in the event of a local system or component failure (e.g., servers or clusters) and disaster recovery to failover to a secondary site should the entire primary site
go down. Until recently, however, the cost, complexity and operational intensity of business continuity solutions meant that organizations were forced to
strictly prioritize which IT assets they could protect—if any.
A joint solution from Microsoft, HP and Citrix reduces the cost, complexity and operational intensity of delivering and maintaining a business continuity
solution. This joint solution makes it fast and easy to set up highly available systems that maintain ongoing operations. As a result, organizations can now safeguard most, if not all, of their IT assets and data.
This white-paper describes how the joint Microsoft, HP and Citrix solution delivers these business results in the event of unplanned downtime associated with a
component, system or even an entire site failure."
