IT organizations are continuously challenged with protecting business-critical applications and data against various causes of downtime. VMware delivers a comprehensive, integrated portfolio of business continuity and disaster recovery solutions that provides high availability, data protection 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.
Protect your IT environment and simplify backup and recovery of your data and systems with virtualization technologies. Simplify recovery of entire systems – including operating system, applications and data – within your recovery time objectives.
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.
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 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.
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.
Learn how cloud-based disaster recovery protects your production environment without the expense and management burden of replicating to a secondary site.Read Info Brief
Efficient and predictable backup and recovery
Protect your IT environment and simplify backup and recovery of your data and systems with virtualization technologies. Simplify recovery of entire systems – including operating system, applications and data – within your recovery time objectives using VMware vSphere Data Protection.
With VMware Data Protection solutions, you can:
Ensure Simple, Cost-Effective Availability for all your Applications
Traditional application-level clustering solutions are costly, hard to implement and difficult to manage. With VMware vSphere, you increase the baseline level of availability for all your applications and ensure service level agreements are met.
In addition, you can slash planned downtime, prevent unplanned downtime and recover rapidly from outages as you:
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. 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.
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
provides a set of capabilities to provide simple and cost-effective
availability for all applications running on VMware vSphere.
