It’s a fact of life. Disasters happen, and when they do, they can sweep away your company’s data. This reality makes disaster recovery a requirement for all businesses, both large and small.

But here’s where things get more complicated. Traditional backup and data recovery solutions, which write data to tape, tend to be expensive, slow, and complex. For these reasons, some companies have implemented disaster recovery for only their most critical applications, leaving many workloads—and a lot of data—vulnerable to disasters.

Today, all of this is changing. When you virtualize your systems, you can now choose from a menu of disaster recovery options that are affordable, easy to manage, and reliable.



That’s where the flexible portfolio of disaster recovery solutions from VMware comes in. With VMware, you can enjoy solutions that deliver disaster recovery on your terms. One example is VMware vCloud® AirTM Disaster Recovery – a cloud-based recovery service that enables operational consistency while protecting your applications with minimal investment.
