When an individual server fails, spare parts, or even a replacement, may be minutes away. But what if your entire site goes down? This can happen as the result of a major regional incident, simple human error, or even a plumbing issue.
Disaster recovery (DR) solutions back up your business-critical server workloads to on-site or off-site warm-standby virtual machines. This is a very cost-effective way to protect your business against server failure. By using virtual machines, you eliminate the costly overhead of one-to-one duplication of server hardware while still reducing RTO and RPO to minutes.
If your DR solution is located in the same place as the servers it is protecting, you are vulnerable to all outages that affect that facility. We can help. For maximum protection and flexibility, our DR solutions are designed to let you back up your production server workloads to an existing VMware environment or to a self-contained DR appliance. The appliance can be deployed in your primary data center, a remote facility, or at a site managed by a third party.
You can even restore and run your backup virtual machines in the off-site facility. This means your business can continue to operate while the main facility is being repaired.
