EMC RepliStor and VMware Software: Providing High Availability, Disaster Recovery, and Data Consolidation in Virtual Environments
Every IT department is responsible for providing a predefined level of service to its users. These requirements are usually defined in a Service Level Agreement (SLA). As you know, the two prime components of any SLA are typically Recovery Point Objectives (RPO) and Recovery Time Objectives (RTO). RPO refers to the amount of data loss; while RTO refers to the maximum level of downtime based on business standards. Inevitably, the level of service that can be provided will be influenced by resource availability, both human and computing.
Common IT challenges discussed in this white paper include high availability, migration and/or consolidation, and disaster recovery with Microsoft Windows environments. Traditionally these tasks would be performed with a combination of hardware provisioning and tape restore. But relying on these conventional methods can be time-consuming and prone to human error. In addition, tape restore can not provide up-to-date content, resulting in some amount of data loss and in the end making SLAs hard to meet.
Learn how by using a combination of data replication technology and VMware, a single, comprehensive solution set can address all of these challenges while still adhering to even the strictest SLAs.
