Where’s my Data? Increase Your Resiliency with Hybrid Cloud
In the recent EMC Global Data Protection Index, we found that “64 % of the 3300 companies surveyed suffered disruption due to data loss and unplanned downtime—losing as much as $1.7 trillion.” That’s a staggering number, larger than the GDP of many countries.
That’s why many organizations today are using hybrid cloud solutions to provide a continuously available environment and solve the disaster recovery issues they face. A continuous availability solution that combines production, high availability, disaster recovery, and continuity of operations in a single solution can immediately add tremendous value to the hybrid cloud environment.
Many of our customers are now looking to leverage the Federation Enterprise Hybrid Cloud solution in an active/active disaster recovery configuration to meet that need. We have invested over 40,000 hours in engineering the solution and we add significant value in the service templates we provide.
There is no reason why everyone should have to reinvent the wheel when it comes to resiliency. Creating a continuously available solution is now even simpler with the creation of blueprints and workflows for services such as disaster recovery and business continuity.
Using a continuous availability framework to enhance the resiliency of the Federation Enterprise Hybrid Cloud, you can implement local or remote failover, where one cloud (either public or private) is always up and running—because, as my colleague Chris Ratcliffe says in his “Reaching Solid Ground” blog, “Customers want their data to be protected wherever it resides, regardless of whether it is in their data center or in the cloud.”
This allows you to reduce operating expenses by consolidating platforms and virtually eliminating downtime and idle DR-only assets.
