Intelligent N+X Redundancy, Placement Affinities, & Future Proofing in the Virtualized Data Center
Virtualization brought about the ability to simplify business continuity management in IT. Workload portability and data replication capabilities mean that physical infrastructure failures no longer need impact application services, and they can rapidly be recovered even in the event of complete site failure.
However, Enterprises and Service Providers face new challenges ensuring they have enough compute capacity in their virtualized data centers to support their business continuity requirements, while at the same time not over provisioning infrastructure capacity resulting in unnecessary capital expenditure.
Double-Take Move provides migration functionality that dramatically reduces the impact and risk of migrations in the data center and across any geographic distance. Double-Take Move has a patented and award-winning replication engine that provides real-time, byte-level data replication and ensures transaction consistency without affecting users and production applications. Read this whitepaper to learn about the concerns that affect data, application and whole system migration.
In a recent Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG) paper1, senior
analyst Mark Bowker listed several requirements and best
practices for building a private cloud. High levels of availability
and scalability, policy-based automation and application control,
workload portability, and unified visibility and management across
infrastructures and applications were all cited as desirable attributes.
