Businesses today rely heavily on their data. Disaster may strike anywhere and occurs in many shapes and sizes. Transporting data over significant distance beyond the reach of a threatening event preserves data so organizations can rapidly recover in the event of a site going down.
This makes deploying a disaster recovery infrastructure between data centers with fast, continuous, and easy replication of mission-critical data to anywhere in the world essential.
Fibre Channel over IP (FCIP), often referred to as “Extension,” is used to connect SANs across distance using IP networks. FCIP is commonly used for Remote Data Replication (RDR) between Enterprise Storage Arrays and Remote Tape applications, for the purpose of Business Continuance via Disaster Recovery (BC/DR).
Join storage technology and industry experts as they discuss their experience and deployment knowledge in:
•Best known methods for deployment with extension architectures, extension in routed topologies, and performance optimization for remote replication
•Industry best practices: topologies to achieve high-availability goals, advantages in trunking, encryption, etc…
•Customer examples and use cases of a variety of critical production environments ranging from SMBs to the largest most demanding enterprises and government institutions
