Accelerated Recovery Time Objective (RTO)
Traditionally, disaster recovery means recovering data before accessing systems. With our Secure DRaaS with RP4VM, a journal keeps a historical record of changes made to VMs. Protect production VMs while an instance of the Cloud DR Server (CDRS) is deployed to Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) to manage the cloud copies and run orchestrated recovery flows to native Amazon EC2 instances.
RPVM uses a journal-based implementation to store all the changes made to the protected VMs. Local protection provides a DVR-like rollback in time capability to any point, even to the last I/O transaction or just seconds before the data corruption occurred.
Note: RP4VM continuous data protection is also available in an on-premises only configuration
Continuous Data Protection
By implementing the RecoverPoint for Virtual Machines Cloud Solution, you can:
Allow multiple copies on-premises both local and remote as well as in the cloud.
Test/Failover to AWS EC2.
Failback to on-premises VMware environments or VMware cloud on AWS (SDDC) by using the Cloud DR appliance (CDRA)
Orchestrate in-cloud DR.
How it works
RecoverPoint for Virtual Machines (RP4VM) works with Cloud DR to protect your VMs by replicating them to the AWS cloud. Replicated data is compressed, encrypted, and stored as incremental snapshots on Amazon S3 object storage. You can set parameters around the snap-replication policies for reliable and repeatable Disaster Recovery. Your VMs are protected using built-in orchestration managed from within vSphere Web Client, test and fail over the protected snapshots in AWS. Dell EMC Cloud DR Server is being used for managing the cloud copies and running orchestrated recovery flows to native AWS EC2 instances, or to virtual machines running within VMware Cloud™ on AWS. Cloud DR provides crash-consistent, image level VM recovery to AWS and VMware Cloud™ on AWS. After failing over, you can fail back in minutes to an on-premises vCenter. Using a single interface to manage your VMs eliminates excess complexity and makes this latest release simply powerful.
