VMware vCloud Hybrid Service

Thursday 24th April 2014

VMware have launched VMware vCloud Hybrid Service - Disaster Recovery, a new cloud-based disaster recovery (DR) service that provides a continuously available recovery site for VMware virtualised data centres.

Built on vSphere, VMware vCloud Hybrid Service - Disaster Recovery is simple to set up, can be self-managed, and is a fraction of the cost and complexity of traditional DR solutions. The service is available immediately in all five vCloud Hybrid Service data centres in the U.S. and U.K.

The low cost and simplicity of the service means customers can avoid the burden of owning tertiary data centres for DR, and can now continuously protect applications that were previously vulnerable because it was too expensive and complicated to include them in a DR plan.

VMware vCloud Hybrid Service - Disaster Recovery is a replication and hosting service ideal for businesses with limited or no DR solution in place today, or customers looking to replace a traditional offering with a service provider or one that is managed in-house. VMware vCloud Hybrid Service - Disaster Recovery provides simple and secure asynchronous replication and failover for vSphere virtual environments.

The service includes:

  • Standby capacity on vCloud Hybrid Service
  • Self-service asynchronous replication, failover and failback
  • 15 minutes - 24 hour RPO
  • Initial data seeding by shipping a disk (Offline Data Transfer)
  • Remote management and monitoring, with production-level support
  • 1TB of storage, standby compute capacity and two, seven day DR tests
