As IT budgets recover in 2012, a growing number of organizations are engaged in business continuity redesign to enhance uptime. Cloud-based Virtual Disaster Recovery (VDR) is becoming the option of choice for organizations whose business continuity plans call for faster recovery and increased business agility. VDR focuses on backing up virtual machines instead of physical servers, which has traditionally required the re-installation of the operating system and the use of local-client backup applications to recover applications and data. With VDR, recovery is much quicker since there is no need to re-install the operating system and applications on a physical server. Instead, virtual machines are recovered with these elements intact. VDR advantages include:

  • High-speed recovery: Critical when time is of the essence and a production data center becomes unavailable.
  • Recoverability of virtualized applications: With the flexibility of recovering to either the same or disparate hardware platforms.
  • Location independence: The ability to recover data to the location of choice for greater operational agility.
  • Many-to-one recovery: Provides greater efficiency and allows companies to get the most out of fewer recovery servers compared to the production site.

Guidance on cloud-based VDR strategies and techniques will be provided during Colesante’s presentation to help organizations ensure access to critical business applications and data when required.

“Virtual disaster recovery allows organizations to customize their recovery processes to fit their IT environment. It expedites recovery while eliminating the complexity, costs and risks of traditional approaches,” said Colesante. “As companies move toward virtualized infrastructures, new strategies and solutions are needed that provide greater DR flexibility and control. Cloud-based VDR offers an innovative approach that is ideal on many levels for most organizations.
