Production failover

Quickly plan and run highly effective data center failovers, ensuring a true assessment of the organization’s readiness to respond in a crisis.

Test better, move faster and reduce risk

It’s not enough to simply have a back-up plan. It’s also crucial to have full confidence that the failover system will kick in when it’s needed. Otherwise, you risk internal disruption, or worse, customer-facing outages. Use Cutover’s Work Orchestration and Observability platform to build realistic scenarios, run highly coordinated rehearsals, improve your incident response time, and switch to full operation in the failover environment.

Major stock exchange achieves operational resilience in line with regulatory guidance

A major stock exchange needed a solution to help conduct their primary data center failover test. The exchange is considered to be critical national infrastructure, so it was vital to get this right.

Results

Using Cutover reduced the amount of planning time by 80% compared to manual tools and processes. The exchange has since expanded its use of Cutover to involve more applications, people, tasks, and complexity.
