Mike Gelhar, Systems Engineer, Long Term Care Group
Many organizations have complex BC/DR plans consisting of several products, requiring multiple people to be present to execute the recovery, should disaster strike. This was the case at Long Term Care Group. They were using an orchestration tool with storage-based replication. Executing a DR test was becoming more and more difficult and confidence in their plan was fading.
Zerto Virtual Replication provides continuous block-level replication and fully automated and orchestrated failover, recovery, failback and DR testing. Mike Gelhar, Systems Engineer at Long Term Care Group knew they had found the solution they needed to deliver robust BC/DR while greatly reducing risk.
- Reduce risk with an automated solution that anyone can execute
- DR Testing ensures recovery through reports and provides the opportunity to make adjustments in the plan
- Maximize the investment with a solution that can simplify migrations and maintenance of the environment
- Installation is complete in one hour with no configuration changes so the carefully architected production environment is not changed, further reducing risk
Jayme Williams, Senior Systems Engineer at TenCate is protecting eight environments across the US and Canada – and each site has different storage. All sites require disaster recovery and backup across the application set. Having one solution would be ideal, but not possible – until they came across Zerto.
Zerto Virtual Replication is storage agnostic and made it easy to integrate a new site into their disaster recovery plan. Their original business continuity and disaster recovery (BC/DR) plan, affectionately named the “Hit by the bus” book due to its volume, has been greatly simplified and the service levels they are seeing are outstanding – single digit seconds for their recovery point objectives (RPO).
Finally, they are incorporating public cloud into their IT plans by backing up their applications from their DR site to AWS. With one solution, they can achieve their BC/DR and backup SLA, while reducing costs and introducing public cloud into their IT strategy at a pace that supports changing business requirements.
With Zerto Virtual Replication:
•Manage all sites in one pane of glass with one tool for replication and automation of failover, failback and testing processes as well as backup
•Increase efficiencies with the ability to track and manage consumption across the hybrid cloud
•Hardware agnostic solution does not require a change in the infrastructure reducing costs
•Consistency in the BC/DR solution dramatically reduces operational costs
•Replicates between different types of storage and versions of VMware vSphere making it easy to add new sites to the process
•Point-in-time recovery enables failover to a previous point to recover from any issue – logical corruption, datacenter outage, etc.
•Leveraging a public cloud strategy with backups stored in Amazon
Demand on IT disaster recovery functions to be more cost effective and efficient is increasingly pushing companies towards cloud-based solutions. This strategy can offer flexibility, convenience and simplicity, however Disaster Recovery in a virtual world can give rise to a new set of potential problems.
Join Chris Snell from Zerto, as he discusses the benefits of a cloud based disaster recovery strategy and how to avoid some of these issues. He will also explore the benefits of using a technology that is hardware-agnostic, storage-agnositc and hypervisor-agnostic.
You'll also learn:
- The importance of continuous data protection to minimise the impact on the production environment
- How to use advanced KPIs and reporting more effectively
- How you can operate effectively within VMWare, AWS or Hyper-V
Matt Compeau is Senior Network Architect at a large financial institution in Boston, MA. With significant dollars being transacted on an hourly basis, business continuity and disaster recovery (BC/DR) are critical. When they had a few virtual machines, their very manual process was ok. However, as their environment grew, all the moving parts and procedures that had to be executed across all their VMs was a concern. They would not be able to meet their SLA with their legacy BC/DR plan.
Matt found Zerto Virtual Replication and is able to easily replicate from Waltham to London and protect the company’s monetary assets. The replication mechanism does not use snapshots which is critical for their environment. Matt was looking for actual continuous data replication, not replication that was “continuous” based on the frequency of a snapshot.
Matt will tell you how Zerto Virtual Replication:
- Delivers RPOs of seconds and RPOs of minutes
- Automates failover, failback and DR testing with the push of a button
- Provides true continuous data protection
- Greatly simplifies management of their disaster recovery strategy
Many companies have a heterogeneous infrastructure – they use different hypervisors, storage and clouds. Ensuring the availability of applications and data across this environment can be really complex and challenging as each silo will have its own tool. This creates inconsistencies in the disaster recovery plan, making it more difficult to execute.
Zerto Virtual Replications delivers effective data protection across VMware vSphere and vCloud environments, Microsoft Hyper-V and Amazon Web Services. One, consistent solution enables companies to select their infrastructure based on performance and price while meeting their service levels effectively. Join Shannon Snowden, Senior Technical Marketing Architect to learn more.
Many organizations apply a data protection label to their processes not understanding if they are really disaster recovery, backup, archiving or something else. This session will help clarify the key differences between backup and disaster recovery and help you understand what level of protection you need for your production applications. Join Chris Snell as he compares the 5 key attributes of backup and disaster recovery:
· Service Levels
· Impact on production applications
· Retention time
· Management and orchestration
· Reverse protection
