The virtual datacenter enabled by Dell™ EqualLogic™ and VMware® vSphere™ technologies now include automated disaster recovery planning and execution. Natively integration of the PS Series Auto-Replication feature directly into VMware’s vCenter Site Recovery Manager™ (SRM) makes this possible.
SRM is a VMware vSphere based product that is tightly integrated with Dell EqualLogic PS Series through vStorage APIs to offer centralized disaster recovery management, automation, and testing for the entire virtualized datacenter. By leveraging the PS Series’ native Auto-Replication feature and directly integrating with vCenter Site Recovery Manager, IT Administrators are able to effortlessly move virtual machines and their datasets between the production and disaster recovery sites. In traditional SAN environments, the cost, complexity and burden on resources is often too high for many businesses to take advantage of SAN-based replication. With the PS Series, Auto-Replication between data centers can be easily implemented without complex configurations and includes flexible scheduling capabilities to save time and network bandwidth.
- Lower disaster recovery cost using automation
- EqualLogic SAN-based replication bundled at no additional cost to reduce cost of vCenter SRM deployments
- Auto-Replication integrates directly into the IP network, overcoming distance limitations and helping to reduce the cost and complexity of WAN integration
