Uptime Institute deploys new hybrid resiliency assessment for hybrid infrastructures

21 February 2018 | Natalie Bannerman


The Uptime Institute has unveiled its new Hybrid Resiliency Assessment service, which is designed to reduce the risks associated with business service delivery for multiple data centres, co-location sites and the cloud.

The new service offers an independent evaluation of an organisation’s hybrid infrastructure and its ability to deliver specific IT services over a range of operating conditions.

Chris Brown 210Speaking on the launch of the new service, Chris Brown, CTO of Uptime Institute, said: “CIOs are chartered to deliver the business services needed regardless of the technical platform choices their teams have made. Delivering business services that span hybrid infrastructures without the same level of governance and risk assessment seen in traditional infrastructure creates a series of hidden vulnerabilities and puts them at a risk. Our new Hybrid Resiliency Assessment service provides a clear view of the expected performance of various business services over a wide range of normal operating conditions – regardless of the underlying systems involved.”

The Hybrid Resiliency Assessment is designed to provide IT executives and staff with governance at the service level, regardless of the type of underlying platforms involved. In doing so, this enables direct alignment between business requirements and the hybrid infrastructure. The service applies a proven methodology for evaluating infrastructures, studying the interactions between the various related sub-systems.

The offering is delivered on-site by Uptime Institute experts and focuses on five key areas which are: organization, application, platform, network and data centre. The consultants analyse each business service across all five areas and clients receive an in-depth resiliency report that outlines the expected performance of specific business services.

In addition, the Hybrid Resiliency Assessment also includes a one-year subscription to Uptime Institute’s online Inside Track community to enable the ongoing improvement of clients’ hybrid platforms. This new service is being offered globally.
