Platform & Architecture

  • Allows virtual machines in vSphere to be easily configured for disaster recovery
  • Removes traditional dependencies on underlying infrastructure hardware or data center mirroring
  • Provides per-virtual-machine replication and restore granularity
  • Uses vCloud Air as a scalable platform for compute infrastructure and storage capacity
