Vizioncore, Inc. Announces esxReplicator for VMware ESX Server

Quoting from their press release:

vizioncore, Inc., the leader in backup, restoration, and disaster recovery automation for the VMware ESX Server(R), today introduced its esxReplicator(TM) solution. Specifically designed to replicate virtual machines that run on ESX Server, vizioncore's esxReplicator is the first solution that performs replication outside of the Guest OS. esxReplicator enables any level VMware administrator to replicate individual VMs and can replicate to dissimilar hardware. The core value of esxReplicator is to provide business continuity while simultaneously reducing associated costs of deployment and maintenance of a high availability solution.

vizioncore esxReplicator facilitates selective replication of the entire virtual machine and its configuration, allowing virtual machines from many ESX Server sources to be replicated to a single ESX Server destination. Working from outside the Guest OS, esxReplicator copies configuration settings, OS patches/level changes, stored data, and more, allowing administrators to create full copies of VMs and replicate the updates for affordable business continuity.

In addition, esxReplicator allows organizations to save on licensing costs, management, and maintenance associated with inside-the-Guest and LUN-level replication activities. Finally, the ability of esxReplicator to selectively replicate individual VMs (instead of an entire LUN) dramatically reduces the level of network traffic, hardware requirements, and associated maintenance costs involved in the replication process, adding further value to the esxReplicator solution.

Key features of the esxReplicator include:

-- Ability to replicate between dissimilar hardware, or from multiple ESX Servers

-- Supports local and SAN-based VMFS volumes

-- Replicates both the OS and the data volumes

-- Selectively replicates individual VMs

-- Replicates directly to LAN or WAN destinations

"The esxReplicator solution further enhances the ability of any level IT administrators to completely manage their enterprise-level ESX Server virtual machines," said David Bieneman, CEO of vizioncore, Inc. "The ability of esxReplicator to provide real-time replication per VM, outside the guest allows small and enterprise organizations to protect mission-critical applications at a low cost. Finally small business can now afford to implement replication without adding infrastructure and maintaining duplicate licensing for the replicated destination."
