Revolutionizing Data Movement

Typical Data Synchronization versus Renovo Data Synchronization

In most cases, data virtualization tools require a significant investment in hardware (money), software (money), time (money), and technical resources (money). In some cases, the end result even produces a new full-time resource for managing the enterprise virtualization system. Regardless of the tool, the desired result for everyone is the same: an efficient way to replicate data for various needs at a low cost (time, money, and labor).

 

Renovo is a tool that leverages existing processes to provide a rapidly deployed solution with a significantly lower cost of ownership. With its automation and self-service portal, it drastically improves a typical data synchronization processes while subtracting the need for technical FTE involvement. This leads to an ROI that is exponentially more palatable for our SMB to enterprise level customers. The balance of performance and cost is the driving factor when purchasing any software. While Renovo may not provide the fastest data synchronization compared to full virtualization, it provides a vastly lower cost of ownership, faster realization of savings, and therefore higher ROI for our customers.

Manage Data Synchronization

Are you short on time? Are you looking for ways to improve efficiencies within your organization?  At Northflow Solutions, our Database Administrators were receiving countless requests from our QA and testing staff to synchronize data on testing, development, and reporting regions.  Fulfilling these requests took time away from our DBAs to complete other initiatives.  Additionally, refreshes were often requested to be run after hours, requiring staff to put in extra time.

 

To address the inefficiencies and to utilize resources better, Northflow Solutions developed Renovo.  Renovo puts the ability to synchronize data in the hands of those requesting it: the QA and testing staff. This allows each resource to focus on their number one priority by removing a bottleneck from the process.  Our testers can now setup and run a refresh when needed; and our DBAs have time to focus on other organizational initiatives.  

We know there are other companies struggling with how to manage data synchronization. We know Renovo can help. Let us share Renovo with you.

Our need to refresh test environments with production data had grown significantly this year. The DBA staff was spending 40% of their time moving data. 

Renovo has removed

the DBA from the data

refresh process. The

employees who used

to request the data

refreshes are managing

this through an easy to

use GUI.

My group often worked nights and weekends refreshing data on environments that couldn't be down during the day. 

I purchased Renovo

so we can schedule

the refresh and

forget about it.

MY GROUP LOVES ME

We were able to increase the number of testing environments by 25% now that maintaining them took

so little time from our

IT staff. We can now do

more work with less

time, without disrupting

our tech group.
