Today we announced our upcoming release of VMware vCloud® AirTM Disaster Recovery, broadening the scope of our service to serve the DR needs of our end users. We started out with an efficient, easy to use, low cost DR solution that came with broad application and operating system support. Now we are introducing three new service enhancements that demonstrate our continuing effort to simplify the use of our DR solution while providing extended capabilities to the service.
Highlights of these new features include:
- Native failback support – provides seamless reverse replication from vCloud Air data centers to a customer’s environment, as well as support for offline data transfer via physical disk, to accommodate larger environments.
- Multiple recovery points – enables multiple point-in-time copies of replicated VM(s), allowing you to roll back to earlier snapshots of your data center environment in the event of corruption or the need to recover to an earlier set of data.
- Self-service automation – leverages vRealize Orchestrator via a plug-in for vCloud Air Disaster Recovery, to define and deploy recovery playbooks that help streamline failover operations.
Stay tuned for additional details and demos about this release, as we get closer to the GA date, later this quarter.
