Infrascale Guarantees Entire Site Failover in 15 minutes

Today Infrascale announced the general availability of its new all-in-one disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS) solution, Infrascale Cloud Failover Appliance (CFA). Infrascale CFA enables companies of all sizes to stay productive in the result of a disaster, be it a server failure, outage, or natural disaster, in single push-button failover.

The main barrier to DRaaS adoption is the perceived high cost, though solution complexity and lack of IT resources also prevent adoption. Infrascale is addressing these perceptions while providing businesses with simple and affordable disaster recovery. Infrascale is releasing CFA, a thin, cloud-based appliance, which is a combination of intelligent software and the power of the cloud to provide comprehensive failover functionality with integrated backup and archiving. Infrascale claims that CFA can failover VMs, servers, and applications in seconds and entire sites in 15 minutes or less all through the push of a button.

Key features and benefits include:

  • Enables Push-Button Failover: CFA lets IT administrators virtualize and spin up critical business applications from the appliance or within the cloud in minutes.  In fact, Infrascale offers a 15-minute guarantee for failover to a second site. CFA also supports a variety of virtual and physical environments, including VMware, Hyper-V and Windows/Linux platforms.
  • Reduces Hardware, Bandwidth and Software Costs. Traditional DR and emerging DRaaS solutions often rely on expensive local storage, professional services and vendor intervention. Instead, CFA is completely self-service, empowering IT to failover up to 200 VMs concurrently with the push of a button.
  • Protects Data with Military-Grade Security. CFA offers multiple levels of protection: encryption in transit, encryption at rest and optional private-key encryption.

Founded in 2006, Infrascale’s aim is to provide any company with powerful disaster recovery solutions. Not only does Infrascale want to provide powerful DR solutions, they want these solutions to be quick, easy, and affordable. Infrascale combines intelligent software with the power of the cloud to provide businesses with the ability to stay productive even in the face of the unexpected.


Infrascale CFA is available today as both a physical and virtual appliance.
