VPLS Inc. and Nimble Storage: Your Dynamic Duo for Backup Solutions

Share Button

There’s a great deal of focus these days on data protection and disaster recovery, and rightfully so, since the world of computing has come under such vicious and numerous predatory attacks by the criminal-minded. Even a single breach of your security system can spell disaster for a company, and if your clients’ data has been compromised, the damage will be more than financial, undermining your reputation as well. While no company can ever be completely immune to such attacks, there are some steps which can be taken that will provide some degree of peace of mind.

Nimble Storage Replication is a solution which offers off-site primary storage service on the cloud coupled with regular backups, to make disaster recovery a quick and efficient process when the need arises. This discussion will consider some of the specific benefits of Nimble Storage Replication, as well as why your best choice for the service is offered by a premium Nimble partner, VPLS Inc.

Data protection

In a Nimble storage environment, a protected site is integrated with the off-site backup and recovery location, so as to obtain all the benefits of array-based data protection capabilities. VPLS Inc. has several such off-site locations strategically located around the globe to provide services wherever you happen to be geographically. Three of these centers are situated in California, at Santa Ana, San Jose, and Los Angeles, and there are two other stateside centers at Ashburn, VA and Phoenix, AZ. Abroad there are data centers at Hong Kong, HK, Singapore, SG, and Bangkok, TH, to accommodate clients in the East. Data protection services may be complex in functionality, but are operationally very easy to implement and execute, so that data protection management is much simplified at a protected site.

Outstanding speed and performance

The ultra-capable Nimble flash arrays deliver industry-leading performance when it comes to Input-Output Operations per Second (IOPS), with low latency to speed, all the while maintaining superior data protection with the help of the best third-party security software on the market. Because replication snapshots and cloning are array-based, there is much less load on servers and less system degradation. Tight integration with backup software allows for maximum efficiency in administering data backup processes.

Proactive monitoring

Nimble incorporates the industry’s only predictive flash platform, InfoSight, which features proactive monitoring based on flash arrays and predictive analytics which can forecast 90% of impending problems automatically, so they can be averted in time. In practical terms, this means downtime is virtually a thing of the past, because problems are identified and responded to well before they ever develop into a downtime situation.


As a premium Nimble partner, VPLS Inc. offers Disaster Recover as a Service (DRaaS), in which cloud pool resources can be used on a subscription basis for the most economic solution to disaster recovery. The objective for disaster recovery time is four hours or less, which reduces impact to your company, and gets you back online as fast as possible. In such cases, the recovery point will be the last replication snapshot taken, and since VPLS experts ensure that regular replication snapshots are done, this will always be the most recent data.

Twice each year, VPLS coordinates disaster recovery tests with clients to ensure data integrity and efficient recovery routines. This is a win-win scenario for companies seeking end-to-end data protection – the best replication process available, hosted by your premium Nimble partner, VPLS Inc.

A VPLS Specialty: Hybrid Cloud Services

Share Button


Take Your Business to the Cloud

Cloud computing has become an essential need for businesses as a way to store and process data. Typically, cloud computing services are privately owned, on-premises, third-party, or public. But hybrid cloud computing uses a mix of all of these varieties. Using a hybrid cloud from VPLS on the VMare platform can provide business some additional agility and room for growth and adjustments as business needs and demands fluctuate.

Specifically, for more sensitive data needs, a business can use on-premises, private cloud services. For less critical services, third-party or public cloud providers can be used. If you’re looking to boost your business’s efficiency and meet your customers’ needs while keeping your data secure and compliant, and all at an affordable price, the VPLS VMware hybrid cloud services can help take your business to the next level.

The VPLS Hybrid Cloud Can Scale with Your Business

Because a hybrid cloud uses more than one kind of cloud service, as your business grows, so can the VPLS Hybrid Cloud. You won’t have to invest in upgrades with on-premises infrastructure. Instead, you can easily either upgrade your virtual machine or you can increase your subscription package.

The VPLS Hybrid Cloud Can Securely Backup Your Data

When you use the VPLS Hybrid Cloud, no matter where your data is residing—on a third-party, public, or private cloud—VPLS ensures that your data will be safe through one of our data centers. You won’t have to worry about outages, weather disturbances, or other unexpected occurrences—VPLS can assure you your peace of mind.

The VPLS Hybrid Cloud and the vCloud Connector

If you are already using VMware vSphere services, the vCloud connector can connect you to the VPLS Hybrid Cloud. You can move your workloads with ease using the VMware vSphere client. Your business’s private cloud can be accessed by the Hybrid Cloud through secure IPsec VPN tunnels. In this way, the VPLS Hybrid Cloud is an extension of your data center. Depending on your business needs, you can use the Hybrid Cloud via a pay-per-use model or purchase a subscription package.

The VPLS Hybrid Cloud Can Provide Expert Security and Compliance

Within the VMare vSphere, businesses can use the vCloud Connector plugin for vSphere to easily and securely connect them to the both private and public clouds. On private clouds, sensitive and critical data can be stored while being able to share pertinent data on the hybrid cloud at a user’s discretion.

The VPLS Hybrid Cloud Extends Your Own Data Centers

If you already have existing cloud computing services, whether public or private, the VPLS Hybrid Cloud seamlessly creates a secure cloud environment for your business’s data, all without needing to use physical servers and all within one environment. You can easily switch your workloads from on-premises to off-premises use, especially when business demands increase—you can use public cloud computing services.

AS a VMware Cloud Hosting service provider, VPLS wants to maximize your business data needs. To learn more about how we can help, contact us today to schedule a demonstration from VPLS cloud specialist.
