VMware Cloud Disaster Recovery with VxRail provides an outstanding disaster recovery solution for organizations.
DR can include dealing with the impacts of ransomware, human error, partial disasters, and full site disasters. No longer are organizations faced with having to maintain the capital investment of a DR site and all that goes with it. They can also avoid woe and despair when hit by a ransomware attack, or avoid guessing whether they retrieved all the tapes needed to recover a site when a ruptured water line floods the data center. With VMware Cloud Disaster Recovery, they can now feel confident in their ability to recover their virtual environment.
The foundation for such a virtual environment should drive consistency in the data center, easing the burden of a disaster. VxRail provides this consistency to organizations and enables operational compliance while providing a robust data center platform. This makes it easier to protect and recover the data center when disaster strikes. This consistency also makes the failback smoother, with less chance of delays due to siloed IT. Furthermore, organizations can leverage the substantial capabilities of VxRail while realizing the benefits of cloud for DR.
A benefit of DRaaS is that to support the DR site, on-premises infrastructure is no longer required. This lessens or removes the capital investment needed for DR, making DR accessible to organizations that might not have been able to afford a DR strategy. Additionally, cloud recovery can be performed quickly from almost any location, allowing teams to remain separate when travel may be difficult. Use VMware Cloud Disaster Recovery to replicate data to a highly resilient cloud from which it can be easily recovered.
At a high level, VMware Cloud Disaster Recovery consists of a DRaaS Connector, a Scale-out Cloud File System, a SaaS Orchestrator, and VMware Cloud on AWS. Additionally, a Pilot Light feature is available in which SDDC core services can be pre-staged and operational prior to a disaster, further decreasing the time it takes to perform a DR. This translates into less down time and fewer lost hours for the organization.
Automatic compliance checks in VMware Cloud Disaster Recovery provide confidence that the disaster recovery environment is ready whenever disaster strikes. This allows organizations to focus less on DR and more on the organization’s needs.
When VxRail and VMware Cloud Disaster Recovery are used together, organizations can realize the reliability and performance of VxRail while protecting the workloads running on them by leveraging the cloud. This makes both conversations about DR and DR events less taboo, and helps organizations to realize their full potential even when disaster strikes.
