Webcast: How to Incorporate VMware and Virtual Server Technologies Into Your Disaster Recovery Plan

How can virtual machines strengthen disaster recovery (DR) strategy? Consolidating disaster recovery servers on virtual machines can reduce both hardware costs and management time. Tune in to hear how VMWare and virtual servers can be combined to produce a DR solution for mission critical servers that is both cost-effective and highly robust.

You'll hear three common scenarios:
1. The simplest case: two servers at the production facility, one running Microsoft SQL Server and a second one running Oracle, are replicated to two virtual servers running on a single physical server at the DR site. The OS and application configurations on the production and virtual machines are identical, but the use of virtual server technology has saved the extra physical hardware.
2. A slightly more complicated situation: the production facility is running its Exchange application on a two-server Microsoft cluster as well as a standalone file server. Two physical servers contain the two cluster nodes at the DR site, and we are still able to consolidate a DR file server on one of them for some savings.
3. Full-power consolidation: The production site is running 11 different applications on 14 physical servers, with three critical applications running on clusters to increase availability. With the proper distribution of applications, we are able to provide DR capability for 14 physical production servers on only 3 physical DR servers and still offer clustering on the DR site with each cluster pair split across physically separate servers!
