Recovering VMware Infrastructure Management Stacks Like a Champ! Under 20 Minutes with Cohesity


When was the last time your organization was able to safely and successfully test and validate the recoverability of all the management components of an enterprise size VMware infrastructure under 20 minutes? Maybe never? If so why?

The reality is that this is a difficult task to achieve especially when having to adhere to strict recovery time objectives. The difficulty of the task may be due to the task complexity, time consumption, operations, dependencies, etc. There are lots of critical reasons as to why this is a challenge.

Business ContinuityVMware recommends organizations to run and maintain all the infrastructure management components that manage services or features for business applications (management stack) such as orchestration, auditing, authentication, automation, service catalogs, etc. in a separate and dedicated cluster. The cluster is typically referred to as the management cluster. This recommendation helps to prevent contention between business and infrastructure related applications, and it is also beneficial for business continuity planning.

When planning business continuity for enterprise organizations, in the event of a disaster or failure the primary focus is always on the line of business applications. I’m not advocating against it, but what I want to point out is the fact that without the managing infrastructure components that support and provides all of the different infrastructure and management services to the lines of business applications, it will be much tougher to bring back the applications and get the business back on track. The business applications may not be able to function until the management stack is online.
