Easy, cost effective Disaster Recovery for your virtual environment


The Challenge:  Effective Disaster Recovery for Virtual IT

The best time to prepare for a disaster is before it occurs. But it can be challenging to implement an effective disaster recovery solution for your virtual environment that isn’t costly and complex. An effective DR solution needs to provide quick recovery of business critical data on site or the ability to quickly fail over to a secondary DR site so you can keep your business running.

Unfortunately most solutions don’t provide both capabilities in a way that is both easy to use and cost effective.  Backup solutions typically don’t provide advanced replication capabilities for fail over.  And replication solutions typically rely on storage-based replication, requiring expensive hardware and labor intensive deployment.

 

 

The Solution: PHD Virtual Backup and Replication

PHD Virtual Backup and Replication is a single, integrated solution that provides backup, replication and disaster recovery for VMware and Citrix XenServer environments.  Using a completely software based, PHD virtual appliance, implementing disaster recovery for your virtual environment can be easier and more cost effective than ever before.  With PHD Virtual you can.

  • Deploy cost effective DR in minutes
  • Backup critical VM’s and data faster
  • Recover VM’s and data quickly onsite
  • Replicate critical VM’s to a secondary site
  • Quickly fail over in case of a DR event
