Dynamic Businesses need Resilient Applications

Is cloud part of your data protection strategy?  Over the past three years, hybrid cloud (aka multi cloud) has been adopted by small, medium and large organizations to achieve agility, elastic scale and cost efficiency.  The uses cases supporting this adoption are abundant but the benefits of cloud have made multi cloud data protection a no brainer.  And the market has responded with a wide range of solutions to help with your strategic planning.  

Unfortunately evaluating these choices can be difficult.  Some solutions cover a subset of the functionality you need leaving you to identify what's covered and where your exposed. They protect and move only virtual machines.  Require you to rip and replace existing integrations to adapt to their technology.  They promise resilient IT but is that sufficient for your needs?

Your business generates revenue from applications.  That’s why you need resilient applications to make sure your business can:  

  • Resume critical operations without impacting revenue streams
  • Deliver reliable customer experiences
  • Protect your business’ reputation

Veritas Resiliency Platform (VRP) has been in the forefront of the market by delivering comprehensive disaster continuity for two years across a wide range of application workloads. It optimizes the operations supporting your dynamic business.  Helps you meet compliance objectives and service levels.  Ensures business applications are up and running – no matter what. 

Before any application workload is moved, VRP establishes configuration and data dependencies on the secondary site, copies metadata, attaches networks and starts up the environment.  Then it automates and orchestrates the movement of the application workload.  If the application was born in the cloud, you can safely migrate back on premise so your teams can integrate it with ERP, CRM or other systems of record.   

Veritas Resiliency Platform abstracts complexity away allowing business and IT teams to focus on moving the business forward.  Here are a few proof points on how this happens:   

  • A unified interface to manage all workloads, not just a subset of virtual machines. VRP supports basic as well as complex business applications that contain multiple tiers, networks and data mover technologies.  
  • Veritas understands that your IO intensive applications reside on physical infrastructure, which needs to be a part of any DR plan. That’s why VRP supports all infrastructure types: physical, virtual and cloud.
  • VRP’s built-in discovery establishes workload configuration and dependencies making sure your applications come up in the proper sequence. Every time. What good is a fast recovery objective if your recovered virtual machine lacks connectivity?  
  • Support for a broad ecosystem of partners as well as choice of data mover technology. This protects your current investments with 3rd party vendors --- especially storage vendors.  VRP discovers and maps storage subsystems from EMC, NetApp, HP, Hitachi and IBM. 
  • Direct integration into Amazon Elastic Block Storage (EBS) and Simple Storage Service (S3). Your business experiences fast, fully orchestrated recovery without the wait times associated with the extra step of data conversion other solutions require.  You have freedom to match storage platform to workload requirements while protecting your cloud budget. 

VRP was far more comprehensive and versatile than anything else we had evaluated.”
