We’ve discussed the basic requirements for a better DR solution. In this post, let’s look at a solution that meets all of the criteria: Datrium Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) with VMware Cloud on AWS.
DRaaS modernizes backup and DR methods. It’s a cloud-based, on-demand SaaS model with instant RTO and built-in backup. It combines cheap and deep storage, using Amazon S3 for immutable snapshots of VMware virtual machines (VMs), with policy-driven DR orchestration and simplified management capabilities.
You pay only when you need it. And because it uses vSphere everywhere – both on-premises and in the cloud – IT admins get operational consistency across environments. That leads to greater efficiencies and saves even more money. Essentially, it simplifies traditional DR into one-click failover and failback.
DRaaS also has simplified data management features, including:
- Automatic compliance checks every 30 minutes to make sure your DR plan is ready when you need it
- Reporting functions that make organizations audit-ready at all times
- DR testing to show it’s working and doesn’t interfere with production IT environments
Take a look at the complete guide to get the details. And look for our next post, where we’ll discuss how to further simplify DR through data silo unification.
