vCloud Air Disaster Recovery

  • Find refuge in the cloud for business critical information
  • Increase business resiliency with minimal investment

Business continuity and disaster recovery are paramount for ensuring your business critical environment, data, and online presence are available with minimal downtime. The availability services offered on *vCloud® Air™ help ensure that your data is protected, recoverable, and accessible by you and your customers.

You know disaster recovery planning is an IT priority, but lack of proper planning, testing, and resources puts you at risk of losing crucial operational information and incurring revenue loss. If you are looking for a cost-efficient and agile solution to implement or to replace dated, complex, and/or costly plans, VMware vCloud Air Disaster Recovery, built on VMware vSphere® Replication™, provides a cloud-based failover environment for dependable recovery when faced with an operational disruption. Asynchronous replication at the hypervisor layer allows for virtual machines (VMs) in VMware vSphere® to be easily configured for disaster recovery. Disaster Recovery is available in all vCloud Air data centers. Watch a  short video to learn more and review the Disaster Recovery Infographic, Datasheet and FAQ for more details.
