VMware delivers a comprehensive, integrated portfolio of business continuity and disaster recovery solutions that provides high availability, data protection and disaster recovery. With VMware Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery , ensure the highest level of availability and eliminate data loss for your business critical applications without the cost and complexity associated with traditional application level clustering. Perform live migrations and upgrades, essentially eliminating planned downtime. Automatically restart applications on available hardware when an operating system or server level failure occurs, making unplanned downtime a thing of the past. 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. vCloud Air Disaster Recovery is a Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS) solution owned and operated by VMware, that offers native cloud based disaster recovery capabilities for vSphere environments.

Simplify recovery of entire systems — including operating system, applications and data — within your recovery time objectives. With VMware Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery be prepared for the unexpected with flexible disaster recovery solutions that fit your business’s needs. With options to build a private cloud disaster recovery solution, or deploy a public cloud disaster recovery as a service, none of your business critical applications will need to go without protection. Efficient and predictable backup and recovery. Protect your IT environment and simplify backup and recovery of your data and systems with virtualization technologies. VMware vSphere enables organizations to eliminate planned downtime and perform system maintenance at any time to reduce the burden on IT and without affecting service. Simplify recovery of entire systems — including operating system, applications and data — within your recovery time objectives using vSphere Data Protection.

VMware Business Continuity And 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. Site Recovery Manager provides automated orchestration and non disruptive testing of centralized recovery plans to simplify disaster recovery management for all your virtualized applications. 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.

Unplanned Downtime

Due to the complexity and cost of application level clustering, only a minority of applications are typically protected with these solutions. In traditional IT environments, that leaves the majority of applications with no protection against unplanned downtime. VMware Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery provides a set of capabilities to provide simple and cost-effective availability for all applications running on vSphere. Use VMware vSphere application high availability. It complements the functionality of vSphere High Availability with application-level monitoring and automated remediation. VMware vSphere fault tolerance provides continuous availability for applications in the event of server failures by creating a live shadow instance of a VM that is in virtual lockstep with the primary instance. VMware Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery reduces application downtime by automatically restarting VMs on available servers upon detecting server hardware or guest operating system failures.

Planned Downtime

Planned downtime for local system maintenance is the number one cause of downtime in IT environments. Maintenance windows are scheduled long ahead of time for evenings or weekends to minimize business impact. With VMware Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery and vSphere enables organizations to eliminate planned downtime and perform system maintenance at any time to reduce the burden on IT. And without affecting service. VMware vSphere Storage vMotion provides the ability to perform live migration of FM disk files across heterogeneous storage arrays with complete transaction integrity and application availability. VMware vSphere vMotion leverages the complete virtualization of servers, storage and networking to move an entire running virtual machine instantaneously from one server to another. With vSphere, you increase the baseline level of availability for all your applications and ensure service level agreements are met.

Disaster Recovery

Simple and reliable disaster recovery for all your applications. With traditional disaster recovery solutions, businesses have to figure out what their budget can support. And make tough decisions about which applications will not be covered. This process has been simplified thanks to the virtualization of IT resources and the advent of disaster recovery offerings via private and public clouds. Disaster recovery solutions are now both easy to manage and affordable, allowing for increased disaster recovery protection for all applications. VMware provides private cloud disaster recovery and cloud based disaster recovery as a service. With VMware Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery organizations benefit from a dual approach to disaster recovery that leverages both private cloud and disaster recovery as a service. VMware provides you with better flexibility to protect your business critical information in vSphere environments. Whether you choose to build your own solution or subscribe to disaster recovery services.
