vCloud Air Disaster Recovery

vCloud Air Disaster Recovery related articles

For around a year I have been working on the VMware vCloud Air Disaster Recovery offering, and have been giving a number of presentations, and writing articles about this topic. At a recent internal conference a number of people asked me if I could provide a list of all the recent articles I have written. Rather than keep sending emails with links, I thought it would make more sense to provide a list of links here so that I can refer back when needed.

This solution brief walks people through considerations around Authentication and DNS, leveraging data seeding for replication, and how to failback to your on-premises environment. Here is a sneak preview of some of the content from the Advanced Architecture Design for Cloud-Based Disaster Recovery Solution Brief: Conclusions Assuring continuity of applications and data through enterprise-grade Disaster Recovery practices is a prerequisite for any full-scale enterprise hybrid architecture using VMware vCloud Air or any cloud Infrastructure-as-a-Service solution. The examples reviewed here extend the vCloud Air use cases to include Disaster Recovery in the cloud, with Clear, simplified setup and migration processes Multiple options to support the DR environment with […]

Lots to talk about over at VMware’s Cloud Services Business Unit.  Yesterday VMware made the Virtual Private Cloud On-Demand Generally Available which is the new pay as you go credit card offering.  They also announced enhanced Disaster Recovery features that will be released in the coming months.  I think this announcement went a little unheard due to the big splash On-Demand made. This release is of particular importance to me, as it is the one I am concentrating all my time and effort developing demo’s, video’s, tutorials, use cases and presentations on, so excuse me for being a little excited lol.  I will also be talking about this more in-depth at the London VMUG on 22nd January.
