VMware Announces vCloud Air Dedicated Disaster Recovery
Today, we are excited to announce the general availability of vCloud Air Dedicated Disaster Recovery solution. This innovative DRaaS solution entered Beta towards the end of last year and has seen successful adoption by early access customers. Dedicated Disaster Recovery solution combines different vCloud Air services such as Dedicated Cloud, Hybrid Cloud Manager, and vSphere-based replication to deliver a customized enterprise-centric solution. A range of network and storage options as well as Hybrid DMZ reference architectures are available to customize the solution-based on your recovery point objectives and security requirements.
Fast, Scalable and Secure
Moving to a cloud-based disaster recovery strategy has easily recognizable benefits such as faster and more agile implementation. It is also a cost effective solution as enterprises can avoid significant upfront costs for servers, storage or even a secondary datacenter. Compared to traditional recovery solutions such as hosted recovery with a third party service provider or on-premises secondary datacenters, a cloud-based solution offers lesser overhead. Its intrinsic “as-a-service” component provides better design flexibility, scalability and cost.
However, companies looking at DRaaS solutions still struggle to find the right feature-functionality fit or a solution catering to their individual audit and licensing requirements. This is especially true for organizations in highly regulated industries such as health care, SLED etc. Their network architectures have evolved to become exceedingly complex. Disaster recovery is then a multi-disciplinary problem as they need to port different network architectures, security protocols and firewalls and a variety of applications to the recovery cloud. Ideally, recovery cloud environments should maintain the same performance and security as the on-premises environment.
