Could an “IT Scrinch” be living in your virtualized infrastructure? And could it be wreaking havoc on your business continuity and disaster recovery (BC/DR) plans in your IT environment?
These questions are probed in a new decked-for-the-holidays infographic that shows how VMware BC/DR solutions help you combat the IT Scrinch and save the day for your data center.
Here are a few of the ways the VMware BC/DR portfolio gets the job done:
- The IT Scrinch wants you to work day and night to protect the almost 40 TB of fresh data produced each year in the typical SMB environment. [i] But not so with vSphere® Data Protection Advanced and vCenter® Site Recovery Manager™. These products help you save valuable staff time by automating and optimizing the backup and recovery of this constant onslaught of data.
- The IT Scrinch greatly enjoys decreasing the availability of your applications. vSphere High Availability helps you fight back. It automatically moves your virtual machines when your servers or operating systems fail and automatically restarts the workloads when applications fail. Need to quickly troubleshoot an issue? In addition, VMware solutions can deliver a 26 percent decrease in time spent on troubleshooting issues brought by the IT Scrinch —to help you keep your systems available.[ii]
- The IT Scrinch enjoys the thought that unplanned data center downtime costs $7,900 per minute.[iii] VMware vCloud® Air™ Disaster Recovery helps you avoid these costs. It leverages a public cloud to protect your onsite business-critical workloads and help ensure operational consistency with realizable cost and resource savings.
These are just some of the many ways you can put VMware solutions to work to combat the IT Scrinch in your virtualized infrastructure. To see additional ideas, check out our infographic “How will the IT Scrinch make you miserable?”
