Disaster Recovery

Disaster Recovery and Disaster Avoidance solutions guard the safety and continuity of your business. The available tools allow to recover the data lost in case of failure at external locations. The technology offered by Integrated Solutions is characterized by high availability for the VMWare virtual environment. For that purpose, we use an EMC VPLEX array virtualizer and a vSphere Metro Storage Cluster (vMSC) configuration. vMSC allows to stretch a VMware HA/DRS cluster across two locations using ESXi 5.x hosts and vCenter Server 5.x management server. Such a configuration is a Disaster Avoidance solution that deliver maximum virtual machine availability in case of failure at any location or infrastructure component. It also shortens RTO (Recovery Time Objective) and RPO (Recovery Point Objective) nearly down to 0. Each of the stretched clusters allows to continuously move virtual machines between centers using the vMotion feature. The clusters also guarantee HA (High Availability) and DRS (Disaster Recovery Services) features for all centers.

EMC VPLEX technology simplifies the virtualization environment. VPLEX comes with features that bring a new quality to the systems. It allows to virtualize distributed storage and merge disk arrays from different manufacturers. It facilitates moving data between disk resources, creating a single management point for the array environment, stretched across distributed locations. Using distributed cache memory allows presenting delivered volumes to hosts both in the base and backup locations. All reads are done locally, while writes are synchronously replicated to the remote location. In case of failure, hosts in one location have access to the data stored in the remote location. As a result, virtual systems gain higher availability ratio. Access to data is provided full-time in the base and backup locations. VPLEX protects systems from different types of failures, assuring access to business data.

 
Who is it for?


Usually, business that invest in Disaster Recovery and Disaster Avoidance solutions are mid-sized and large companies with a distributed structure and many branches. That way, they increase the security of processed information and ensure continuity of business operation, without worrying about effects of failures.

 
Benefits:

Continuous access to data from any location

Single point of management for the array environment

Fast resource recovery. RTO and RPO times nearing 0.

Simplified architecture of the virtual environment
