High Availability & Failover
For today’s modern organization, running in a high availability environment is more than a smart business decision, it’s simply expected. Uninterrupted, continuous access to critical systems can mean the difference between success and failure and is often what differentiates high performance organizations from the rest.
Operations failure, natural disaster and even scheduled downtime can limit business capabilities resulting in lost revenue and decreased productivity.
System Availability and Virtualization
Designing a disaster recovery solution can be challenging and complex. You want great protection, but without the hassles and at a price you can afford. Reliability, cost effectiveness and simplicity in the event of operation failure is simply a necessity for business to thrive.
Disaster recovery of a virtualized environment ensures high rate of availability. Failover capability in servers, systems or networks ensures continuous availability and a high degree of reliability. In a virtualized environment, failover is less reliant on physical hardware and as a result, more effective during all types of situations that would otherwise disrupt normal business operations.
Plus, it’s easier to recover data from backup devices and or shift production to a new location where your virtual server data has been replicated. Simply put, with virtualization, your entire disaster recovery plan improves- from cost to recovery time to efficiency.
Quality products like VMware Vmotion, designed for the virtual platform VMware vSphere, eliminates much of the complexity associated with failover by automating critical tasks. An effective, easy and convenient solution for protection in a virtual environment with zero downtime, VMware Vmotion just makes sense. Keep your IT environment up and running with high availability you can trust… an absolute surefire way of meeting increasing demands of your business.
