The Big Picture in Disaster Recovery: Tying Together Virtualization, Replication and WAN Acceleration for Better Business Continuity

When?  April 25, 2007.  11AM - 12PM EST

Most enterprises have well defined Recovery Time Objectives (RTO) and Recovery Point Objectives (RPO) as part of their business continuity plans. However, it is often quite difficult to meet these objectives. For example, while 83% of enterprises have a goal of complete backup/replication in less than 5 hours, only 40% are actually achieving this goal. These problems are only getting worse due to an enormous increase in the volume of data that is being protected and an increase in geographic distances between data centers as enterprises look to protect themselves from catastrophic disasters, such as a hurricane or terrorist attack.

Enterprises are barraged by different technologies that help solve their disaster recovery challenges, such as virtualization, data replication, and WAN acceleration. Because these technologies span a variety of IT segments (i.e. servers, storage, and network infrastructure), they might appear to be disjoint on the surface. However, they are quite complimentary to one another, and can easily be combined to create an effective end-to-end disaster recovery solution.

In this discussion, industry experts from VMware, Double-Take Software, and Silver Peak discuss how to “put the pieces together” for an effective disaster recovery plan. They discuss new trends in data protection technology that span all areas of IT, citing specific examples of how real-world customers have put combined DR solutions into practice for improved business continuity.
