Deploy in Minutes
Axcient Fusion is true DRaaS.
Go from catastrophic infrastructure failure to full IT productivity in under 60 minutes.
Eliminate hardware, software licensing, and maintenance cost associated with running a VMware disaster recovery site.
Compliance and Security
Use Runbooks to demonstrate Disaster Recovery readiness and compliance.
In managing a VMware environment, the focus should be on providing a robust, high availability environment that ensures applications are always available; not spending time and money hosting and managing a disaster recovery site.
For companies, the capital and operational expense of architecting, building, and hosting a remote disaster recovery site coupled with server acquisition, licensing cost and site monitoring don’t make financial sense. Axcient created Fusion to achieve IT resilience by eliminating the cost and operational overhead of legacy on-premises solutions.
Fusion consolidates and converges the full suite of resilience workloads – disaster recovery, data protection, archiving, long-term retention, and testing and development – into a single cloud platform. With Fusion, businesses can eliminate the need to operate and maintain multiple data centers while achieving greater uptime for their applications and data.
Axcient Fusion enables businesses to converge and consolidate critical VMware workloads for IT resilience into a single cloud platform while eliminating the cost and operational overhead of legacy on-premises solutions.

TRUE DRAAS OFFERING
Configured and deployed in minutes, Axcient Fusion is a true DRaaS offering for your clients. Utilizing the inherent capabilities of VMware, Axcient provides automated disaster recovery to the cloud. During the service configuration, MSPs can tailor Fusion to meet specific replication requirements. These include the desired recovery point objective (RPO), when to start the initial seed replication, and how much network bandwidth Fusion should consume during and outside business hours.
It is also possible to configure the health status thresholds for protected devices and the Axcient Virtual Manager (AVM). Thresholds dictate when health status changes occur in the Web Management Interface to alert the user that attention is needed.
Fusion from Axcient enables businesses to converge and consolidate critical VMware workloads for IT resilience into a single cloud platform while eliminating the cost and operational overhead of legacy on-premises solutions. Fusion is built with data efficiency and security in mind. Fusion uses an incremental-forever replication topology. For the initial seed replication, an application-consistent snapshot is taken of each VM.
Data deduplication then determines if there are any redundant blocks of data across the virtual machines and optimizes network and cloud storage utilization. For all subsequent replications after the initial seed, only deduplicated, incremental changes are sent to the Axcient Cloud, minimizing the time it takes to update the cloud with new restore points and ensuring desired Recovery Point Objectives (RPOs) are met.
ENSURE SECURITY, PRIVACY, AND RELIABILITY
When your client loses their local data center, their business is at risk. The difference between being out of operations for an hour, to being down for days can be the difference from in-business to completely out-of-business. Go from catastrophic infrastructure failure to full IT productivity in under 60 minutes with Axcient Fusion.
In a disaster event, the MSP can log into the Fusion Web Management Interface to create a virtual private cloud called a Virtual Office. The Virtual Office is an on-demand replica in the Axcient Cloud of the protected on-premises environment. The Virtual Office ensures security, privacy and reliability for every organization needing to run one or more failover virtual machines in the Axcient Cloud.
SECURITY AND COMPLIANCE
Axcient Fusion makes compliance easier with Runbooks. Runbooks are detailed deployment plans for Virtual Offices. Runbooks can be implemented for any number of use cases, such as failing over an environment during an outage, running a short server test, or exercising a disaster recovery test plan. Exercising a Runbook is the most effective means of demonstrating compliance. A Runbook can be configured to specify a specific order for starting VMs in the Virtual Office along with the allocation of compute resources for each VM.
The Runbook also specifies network settings within the Virtual Office, such as assigning sets of VMs to particular subnets. Once a Runbook is configured and saved, it can be used to stand up an entire Virtual Office with a single click of a button. Axcient is continuously focused on security and only Axcient provides the highest level of security of any competitor with an “A” rating from Security Scorecard, the leader in Cybersecurity ratings by Forrester.
