Simple, Cost-Effective Disaster Recovery and Migration
Deliver Unified Onboarding, Migration and Disaster Recovery
VMware Cloud Director Availability is a powerful solution built to offer simple, secure, and cost-effective onboarding, migration, and disaster recovery services “to” or “between” multi-tenant VMware clouds.
Enjoy unified management built on familiar tools with a modern HTML-5 interface, native integration with VMware Cloud Director, rapid appliance deployment models, and a single role-based access control (RBAC) portal to tenants and service providers. Intuitive native in-context Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) with simple tiered options for different workload criticality drives increased consumption and stability. Understanding service capacity requirements and integrating operational awareness for the entire solution means cloud providers can confidently deploy and manage large volumes of customers without additional operational costs.
Part of the VMware Cloud Provider Platform, VMware Cloud Director Availability has been designed to dramatically simplify cloud onboarding, enables cost effective availability and recovery, and secure operations to cloud providers and their end customers. The solution integrates in-context with VMware Cloud Director to offer DRaaS, self-service on-boarding and migration to VMware Cloud Director-based clouds.
Benefit from a subscription-based, highly competitively priced solution designed with core features to minimize costs and tight integration to reduce operational management costs. Additional flexibility and compelling economics are delivered through storage independence from VMware vSphere Replication, tenant self-service protection, failover, and failback workflows, and granular per virtual machine or per-vApp controls.
Not all workloads are equal, and whilst customers need to align cost to criticality, service provides must personalize services to their customers without incurring operational cost nor stability issues. DRaaS SLA Profiles brings simple tiering of services to customers with personalization provided by their cloud provider allowing a provider to increase their service margins with the correct tiering, including RPOs from 1 minute and advanced retention policies for customer workloads.
