How to achieve affordable disaster recovery with Rackspace Managed VMware Cloud

Presented by

Jason Crandall and Henry Villegas

About this talk

Legacy disaster recovery solutions can be expensive but are typically required to resume operations for production workloads. Leveraging the cloud's inherent scalability for infrastructure as your DR site can simplify datacenter operations and reduce costs. With VMware Cloud on AWS, scaling compute and storage changes the complexity of a legacy DR solution. What if you could add storage without additional compute and memory, providing a more cost-effective way for DR? In this webinar, you’ll learn how to create a Pilot Light architecture in VMware Cloud on AWS with a minimum host footprint that can reduce cloud costs by up to 40% or more for DR! We’ll demonstrate how storage can be decoupled from compute and easily expanded on a DR event by integrating NetApp Cloud Volume Service as external storage with VMware Cloud on AWS and how to scale storage beyond cloud hypervisor quotas. We will also show you some interesting related use cases along the way too! Speakers: •Jason Crandall, Staff Cloud Solution Engineer •Henry Villegas, Global Lead VMware Solutions Architect
