A Recovery-as-a-Service Offering by VMware

VMware vCloud Air Disaster Recovery is a recovery-as-a-service (RaaS) solution that introduces native cloud-based disaster recovery capabilities for VMware vSphere virtual environments. Built on VMware's hypervisor-based replication engine, vSphere vCloud Air Disaster Recovery includes:
• Self-service disaster recovery protection for virtual machines
• Recovery point objectives (RPO) from 15 minutes to 24 hours
• Readily facilitates failover, failback and planned migration as needed
• Retention of multiple recovery points - up to 24 point-in-time instances
• Elastic cloud compute and storage capacity
• Support for offline data seeding
• Private leased line network option
• Flexible failover testing

Key Benefits
• Hybrid cloud compatible business continuity and disaster recovery (BC/DR) capabilities at your fingertips through native integration in VMware vCenter
• Enhanced recovery times for business and mission-critical applications running on vSphere
• Application-agnostic protection through virtual machine encapsulation and replication
• Hardware independence for consistent replication and recovery support throughout data center upgrade and lifecycle changes
• Significant cost reductions in overall disaster recovery planning by using the cloud for simplified failover and failback recovery operations
• Scalable disaster recovery protection capacity in the cloud to address changing business requirements
• Production-level support and SLAs backed by VMware


What is Disaster Recovery?
vCloud Air Disaster Recovery is a RaaS offering owned and operated by VMware, built on vSphere Replication and vCloud Air - a hybrid cloud platform for infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS). Together, these components form a straightforward service- oriented approach to extending disaster recovery capabilities and protection coverage to any business or mission-critical application running in a vSphere virtual environment. Disaster Recovery leverages vSphere Replication to provide robust, asynchronous replication capabilities at the hypervisor layer. This approach to replication allows for virtual machines in vSphere to be easily configured for disaster recovery without the traditional dependencies on underlying infrastructure hardware or data center mirroring. Per-virtual-machine replication and restore granularity further provide the ability to meet dynamic recovery objectives without overshooting actual business requirements for disaster recovery as they change over time. Disaster Recovery also takes advantage of the cloud, using vCloud Air as a scalable platform for compute infrastructure and storage capacity. By utilizing a secure, multi- tenant cloud architecture, Disaster Recovery is able to address variable capacity requirements needed to support common disaster recovery use cases, such as replication, failover and failback processes , at a significantly reduced price point over traditional in-house disaster recovery solutions or managed service alternatives. Combined with an unprecedented degree of self-serviceability over what to protect and when, what copy to revert back to, and building a runbook, Disaster Recovery makes it easy to enable hybrid-aware BC/DR capabilities for broad-scale adoption across the virtualized enterprise.
