Backup & Replication Acceleration
Businesses today need to ensure they have efficient and reliable data recovery strategies and meet their Recovery Time Objective (RTO) and Recovery Point Objective (RPO) goals. Using Replify with Dell EqualLogic SANs allows companies to combat issues such as low bandwidth, high latency and chatty protocols when implementing business continuity solutions, at the market’s most competitive price point therefore improve data replication.
Dell EqualLogic PS Series iSCSI virtualized SANs, enable cost-effective enterprise storage solutions for virtualized server environments. The PS Series arrays comes complete with a comprehensive set of advanced data protection and management software at no extra cost, including an Auto-Replication which integrates with VMware Site Recovery Manager.
This allows organisations not only to backup remote offices but to replicate datacentres to a remote location in case of a site failure and have a predictable restore process. However, data backup and replication processes over a WAN link can be a painful and lengthy process with low bandwidth, latency and network congestion greatly affecting replication and recovery times. Even differential replications can consume large amounts of bandwidth; much more than the standard WAN link can provide.
