March 31, 2008 - Northeast Utilities deployed Continuity Software’s RecoverGuard software and DR Assurance service to increase confidence in its ability to recover critical IT systems in the face of a disaster.


Northeast Utilities’ production and disaster recovery (DR) datacenter environment covers three states, Connecticut, New Hampshire and Massachusetts, and includes both UNIX and Windows servers, as well as Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server and Sybase databases.


The datacenters support and protect business services across the organization including enterprise resource planning (ERP), supply chain and customer relationship management (CRM).


RecoverGuard scans Northeast Utilities' open systems DR environment nightly, ensuring that no inadvertent configuration changes might adversely affect recoverability status. When an issue isdetected, RecoverGuard delivers an alert, allowing Northeast Utilities to take action and ensure ongoing data protection, disaster recoverability and business continuity.


Continuity Software’s DR Assurance service enhanced Northeast Utilities’ DR strategy. Daily statistics, tickets and event notifications are now sent directly to the Continuity Software DR Specialists Team for review and analysis. When a problem is detected, a Continuity Software DR Specialist alerts Northeast Utilities and provides recommendations on how best to remedy.
