What is VMware vCloud Air Disaster Recovery?
It is a new recovery-as-a-service (RaaS) solution that introduces native cloud-based disaster recovery
capabilities for VMware vSphere® virtual environments.
hat Are the Key Benefits?
vCloud Air Disaster Recovery provides simple, cost effective disaster recovery with advanced benefits, including:
• Recovery point objectives (RPO) from 15 minutes to 24 hours.
• Recovery time objectives (RTO) of 4 hours or less.
• Automated failover testing, planned migrations, and recovery.
• Elastic cloud compute and storage capacity.
• Flexible failover testing.
Top 5 Reasons for
Cloud-Based Disaster Recovery
There is no question that every business wants to protect their operations from downtime
and loss of data. But many companies don’t have the internal expertise or budget to
implement the disaster recovery plan they need. Traditional disaster recovery solutions
typically cost too much; they’re too complex; and they are not always reliable.
VMware vCloud® Air™ Disaster Recovery introduces native cloud-based disaster recovery
capabilities for VMware vSphere® virtual environments. Built on VMware’s hypervisor-based
replication engine, vSphere Replication, and integration support with vCloud Air, it
provides simple and secure asynchronous replication and failover. Consider these top
five reasons why you should look to the cloud for your disaster recovery needs.
1. Ease of Getting Started
Deploying and managing a traditional disaster recovery plan can be complex and require
time, budget, and staff that you may not have. Disaster Recovery provides an easy way to
get started with an effective disaster recovery plan—without investing in any hardware,
without hiring and training new specialists, and without having to invest in a secondary
site. The service provides a simple, secure, automated process for replicating and
recovering applications and data in the case of a local disaster or disruptive event.
2. Flexible, Lower Cost Alternative
The costs of traditional disaster recovery solutions can force you to make tradeoffs on
what you can afford to protect versus what you need to protect. This can leave your
organization vulnerable to having inadequate protection. Disaster Recovery addresses
variable capacity requirements needed to support common DR use cases, such as
replication, failover, and recovery, at a significantly reduced price point over traditional
in-house disaster recovery solutions or managed service alternatives. You have the
scalability to accommodate shifting requirements, you pay only for what you need,
and you have flexible subscription options.
3. Simplified Environment
Creating a comprehensive disaster recovery plan can be complex, whether you are trying
to do it yourself or are choosing a managed service provider. Disaster Recovery is built
on vSphere Replication and integrated with vCloud Air, enabling you to consolidate your
IT needs across your data center, hybrid cloud, and disaster recovery plans. This means
you can leverage the same tools, skill sets, and processes that you already use. And you’ll
have the confidence that you will get the same reliability, security, and support you know
and trust from VMware.
4. Management Consistency
The ongoing maintenance and monitoring of a disaster recovery solution can require
new training and skills, and introduce time-consuming manual processes. Disaster Recovery
provides a single interface and common management with your onsite VMware environment.
You’ll get up and running faster as your admins can use the UI that they are most familiar
and comfortable with to manage your disaster recovery environment. Workflow execution
and task management are available from both vSphere Replication and the vCloud Air
Console to ensure access to your disaster recovery environment at all times.
5. Self-Service Protection
With disaster recovery solutions, the caliber of the support available and the ability to
test recovery procedures often can make a difference in the degree of confidence you
have in recovering your systems. Disaster Recovery enables self-service protection, and
comprehensive failover and failback workflows for each virtual machine. You have control
over what to protect and when. You can set custom Recovery Point Objectives (RPO)
per virtual machine for fine-grained control over replication frequency based on business
application priorities. You also have best-in-class customer service and testing support
with a single vendor to call—VMware.
With a cloud-based disaster recovery solution, you benefit from lower price points, flexible
contract terms, and the scalability to grow as your needs change. vCloud Air Disaster
Recovery allows you to increase business resiliency while protecting applications, with
