Virtualisation and Business Continuity
Implementing a reliable business continuity solution can be time-consuming and expensive to manage.
Business continuity is an essential requirement for organisations today; however traditional disaster recovery solutions are often costly and complex. Virtualisation is a fantastic enabler for business continuity, especially when budgets are low. Virtualisation lets you run multiple virtual machines on a single physical machine, with each virtual machine sharing the resources of that one physical computer across multiple environments. A virtual machine is effectively a collection of files, and thus, opens up new opportunities around disaster recovery.
Protect your business applications and data:
Simplified Data Protection: Hardware configuration, firmware, operating system install and application install are all stored on a few files on disk; these files are easily protected by your backup or replication software. Virtual machines are hardware-independent, therefore the files can then be recovered to any hardware without requiring any changes.
Eliminate Planned and Unplanned Downtime: Virtualisation ensures that you have the highest level of availability. The live migration of virtual machines eliminates the need for planned downtime, allowing IT to perform maintenance on physical servers without user or service disruption.
Reduce the Cost of Disaster Recovery: There is no need to buy additional hardware or duplicate servers. Server consolidation lets you significantly reduce the cost of server infrastructure needed both for production and disaster recovery.
Recover Rapidly from Disasters: Traditional disaster recovery plans require many manual, complex steps to allocate recovery resources. Virtualisation allows disaster recovery automation by turning physical servers into data and recovery procedures into software.
