Session #5189: Reference Architectures for Software Defined Disaster Recovery
It’s not 2011 anymore. Disaster Recovery solutions that seemed robust and innovative just two years ago are becoming obsolete today. Flexible infrastructure capabilities now allow cloud service providers (CSPs) to offer services they couldn’t feasibly provide in the not too distant past.
Using their existing infrastructure, CSPs can offer Disaster Recovery in (or to) a vCloud Environment, protect their own VMs at the same time and even support combined DR scenarios, such as bidirectional replication and multi-site replication scenarios. In this session, we will discuss the three scenarios for Software Defined Disaster Recovery in the Cloud, namely, DR as a Service, In-cloud DR and Combined DR services.
The session will address all three use cases, weigh benefits of each scenario and detail the reference architecture for multi-tenant Cloud DR, including networking constraints, resource masking and performing failover testing in a VCD environment.
Once we explore the concepts, we will see a live demo of the three use cases for Software Defined Disaster Recovery in the Cloud, namely, DR as a Service, In-cloud DR and Combined DR services.
What you will learn:
- Learn how to augment and optimize a BC/DR solution to protect production workloads in a vCloud Environment, including complexities of implementation such as networking, failover testing and resource masking.
- Understand the ease and flexibility of today’s many deployment options for cloud-based disaster recovery that include DRaaS, in-cloud DR and combining both methods while utilizing the same DR infrastructure.
- See a live demo of Software Defined Disaster Recovery, explaining all three scenarios for cloud DR.
