New WhatMatrix Comparison Launched: Disaster Recovery for Virtual Infrastructures

Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery (BC/DR) remain to be one of the hottest topic in the IT industry.  And in the end, it’s all about the availability of the IT services that are essential for running the business in any organization.

Although we tend to focus on the technological challenges BC/DR brings, business continuity is actually about how to continue the business when a big disaster strikes. This does not only bring technical challenges, but also organizational once.

When thinking about BC/DR, the first step is always to determine the company policy for continuing the business (the business continuity policy, or BCP). This policy should be defined by the higher management of an organization. The next step is to analyze business processes that should be protected against a disaster, the business impact analysis (BIA).

When this is all clear, it’s time to choose a recovery strategy and have a closer look at available DR solutions in the market…

And that's where WhatMatrix will come in handy. 

Announcing the disaster recovery for virtual infrastructures comparison


The WhatMatrix community has launched the first edition of the disaster recovery for virtual infrastructures comparison, created by category consultant Viktor van den Berg.

This new comparison focuses on DR options for Microsoft and VMware based virtualization platforms and includes DR solutions from vendors like Microsoft, Veeam, VMware and Zerto.

These solutions provide automation and/or replication options to a second, fail-over site.

Included in this new comparison are details on licensing, hypervisor compatibility, replication and orchestration options. For some of the solutions, different editions are added to the comparison, enabling you to compare the different options a single vendor provides.

But wait... there's more to come!

The team at WhatMatrix isn't going to stop here.  While this first version of the disaster recovery for virtual infrastructures comparison focuses on on-premises DR solutions, they plan to expand and add a Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS) solution to the comparison matrix as well.
