Accelerated Recovery Time Objective (RTO)

Traditionally, disaster recovery means recovering data before accessing systems. With our Secure DRaaS with Zerto, a journal keeps a historical record of changes made to VMs. This is known as Continuous Data Protection (CDP). During failover, every end user request is analysed to determine if the response should be returned directly from the virtual machine or from the journal, whichever is more current. This process continues until the failover is complete.

Failover network and integration capabilities allow end users to seamlessly access data during and after a failover event.

Recovery Assurance

Create DR runbooks within our Secure Cloud Console to configure the orchestration of recovery groups and simplify the development, management and execution of your DR plan:

  • Create multiple DR plans. Use the our Secure Cloud Console to build DR plans for any scenario to enable and orchestrate application specific recovery.

  • Automate the entire failover and failback process. Leverage our failover wizard to automate the failover and failback process. Automation reduces the errors of manual failback including data loss and data integrity. Alerts and reporting about the failover are available in the Secure Cloud Console.

  • Test anytime. The Secure Cloud Console enables you to test your disaster recovery yourself to ensure your plan works. Failover and back without service disruption – and without fitting an arbitrary schedule. Run a full suite of DR testing by selecting a runbook and then invoking the automated test failover. Verify the success of your runbook before there is a disaster

Virtual Protection Groups

Protect virtual machines (VMs) by group and/or tier to ensure consistent recovery points (RPOs) across all grouped machines.

  • Define your own RPOs for your VMs. You can define the RPO for individual VMs, or for group VMs, to achieve RPOs of seconds with little impact on performance or resource usage of the primary system.

  • Perform partial failovers. You can group VMs supporting multi-tier applications. Partial failovers can help you reduce costs and simplify failback.

  • Perform granular restores. A checkpoint journal at the recovery site can store RPO points from between 1 – 720 hours, enabling you to restore to points prior to the disaster.

  • VSS awareness. For certain applications such as SQL and Exchange.

Performance, efficiency, and individual design

Secure DRaaS utilises efficient technologies to ensure failover and failback meet your business and application-specific requirements.

  • Fastest replication. Integrated network compression enables both closer Recovery Points and reduced WAN bandwidth requirements.

  • Existing network compatibility. Secure DRaaS can be configured with recovery networks that match your internal private network range(s), yielding a more aggressive RTO with no reconfiguration of VMs.

  • DNS failover. Disaster recovery management is simplified with the integration of DNS management into the cloud console. DNS management can be performed from the same location in which you manage cloud resources and disaster recovery. Easily manage your public IP blocks, DNS zones, records, and make updates to all your DNS records in the event of a failover through an easy-to-use search and edit tool within the console.

  • Storage options. We supports replication of VMware virtual machines and is storage-agnostic with two tiers of encrypted storage to ensure all key workloads are protected.
