Large (greater than 100 Terabytes) VMware vSphere and VMware View configuration split across two sites.Challenge:
Remote and local users are experiencing frequent outages and very poor application response from their virtual desktops. The problems have been isolated to a) bottlenecks in the back-end disk farms and b) the need to interrupt applications when making storage-related changes. Regulatory pressures have now made disaster recovery a priority.
Place the disk farms under the control of DataCore SANsymphony™-V storage virtualization software running on network servers to front-end the existing SAN. Configure the software for thin provisioning and synchronously mirror virtual disks between the DataCore universal storage controllers. Any storage-related changes going forward can now take place non-disruptively and the software will automatically provision just enough space, just-in-time. In the process, set up the software to automatically replicate virtual disks asynchronously between sites over an IP network to underpin your disaster recovery solution.
