Ease of access to business-critical data and applications can make the difference between emerging from a crisis at minimal cost and maximum speed, or jeopardizing your business reputation and bottom line. Think that’s an exaggeration? Consider this – the average cost of a single hour of downtime for an enterprise is $300,000.
But replicating operations at a remote physical site can also be expensive and difficult. That’s why so many of today’s enterprises are turning to the cloud for their disaster recovery strategy. And now DataCore is helping them do it.
DataCore Cloud Replication software solutions are now available in the Microsoft Azure Marketplace to support customers’ disaster recovery efforts. Anyone with on-premises deployments of SANsymphony™ software-defined storage and Hyper-converged Virtual SAN can use the Microsoft Azure cloud as an added replication location to safeguard highly available systems.
This makes it much simpler for enterprises that have DataCore deployed to take advantage of the scalability, agility and cost-efficiencies of the Azure cloud to quickly roll out a secure remote replication site, while enjoying unified storage management between their on-premises infrastructure and the Azure cloud.
This offering can help enterprises more effectively achieve mission-critical business objectives such as efficient disaster recovery. For example, on-premises stretch clusters split between two sites in a metropolitan area can also replicate a third copy of the data to Azure to protect against data loss in the event of a major regional disaster. Critical data is continuously replicated asynchronously within the hybrid cloud configuration.
In addition, customers with a diverse mix of storage brands or models can run DataCore software-defined storage on-premises to consolidate and unify data replication to the Azure cloud for all storage assets versus dealing with the complexity and cost of implementing piecemeal vendor by vendor approaches.
Qualifying licenses are available from DataCore channel partners that are ready to provide the professional services necessary to set up the remote replication sites, and can tailor the appropriate services for each customer’s recovery requirements. To find a partner and learn more, click here.
