DataCore’s Brooks Butler, Director-Technical Account Management Americas, covers the “Secrets to 100% Uptime in a Virtualized Environment.” Customers profiled in the presentation span large, medium and small IT environments. Keeping systems up and running 365 days per year while maintaining 100% data availability without breaking the bank has always been the insurmountable hurdle. Virtualization doesn’t get us any closer. Virtual servers tend to fail at least as often as physical ones, and are downtime multipliers due to the number of applications that may be affected by a single hardware failure. On the data side, the cost to replicate data across a WAN between two (or three) mirrored arrays all branded by the same vendor is exorbitant.
