VMware provides you with better flexibility to protect your business critical information in VMWare vSphere environments whether you choose to build your own solution or subscribe to disaster recovery services.
Private Cloud Disaster Recovery
For organizations that would like to build out their own private clouds for disaster recovery, VMware offers a portfolio of products that includes replication and disaster recovery orchestration, as well as a hyper-converged infrastructure solution to further simplify and reduce the costs of implementing a disaster recovery solution.
- VMware vSAN, a key component of VMware Hyper-Converged Software, brings the benefits of hyper-converged infrastructure and software-defined data center to storage. By clustering server hard disk and solid state drives, vSAN creates a flash-optimized, highly resilient shared datastore designed for virtual environments.
- VMware vSphere Replication is a flexible and easy-to-use replication technology that is configured and managed at the virtual machine level, making it storage independent and an enabler of data mobility between heterogeneous storage systems.
- VMware Site Recovery Manager provides automated orchestration and non-disruptive testing of centralized recovery plans to simplify disaster recovery management for all your virtualized applications.
Disaster Recovery-as-a Service
Disaster recovery-as-a-service solutions allow you to avoid the costs of purchasing the infrastructure and software needed for a secondary or tertiary disaster recovery site and to pay for your disaster recovery solution out of your operating budget.
- VMware vCloud Air Disaster Recovery is a recovery-as-a-service solution owned and operated by VMware, that offers native cloud-based disaster recovery capabilities for vSphere environments. The service leverages vSphere Replication to provide robust, asynchronous replication capabilities at the hypervisor layer.
