As a premier Nimble Storage partner, VPLS offers offsite replication services to the Cloud for enhanced data protection and Disaster Recovery solutions.
VPLS Nimble Storage Replication Services to the Cloud are offered at our Los Angeles, Phoenix, and Ashburn data centers for additional redundancy. Our site-to-site VPN connections add enhanced data security.
In a Disaster Recovery scenario, VPLS Cloud Pool resources can be consumed on a Pay-Per-Use or subscription basis for on-demand infrastructure. In most cases, Recovery Time Objective (RTO) is less than 4 hours and Recovery Point Objective (RPO) is the last replication snapshot. Our team of Cloud experts monitor and ensure data is replicated and bi-annual tests are scheduled with the customer to ensure data integrity. Nimble Storage has built-in features such as Efficient Replication for compressing copies and changes that assist with Disaster Recovery replication over the WAN. Integrate VMware Site Recovery Manager (SRM) for simplified Disaster Recovery testing in fail-over and fail-back scenarios.
Cloud Replication with Zerto
VPLS can help your organization continue after a disaster with Zerto cloud replication. Hypervisor-based replication technology simplifies the complications of generating a disaster recovery plan for VMware cloud services, by allowing the replication process to move from the physical level of storage to the virtual level of the hypervisor. VPLS can help automate the recovery process by removing the complications of storage to storage replication and allowing scripts to be ran that can change server IP addresses etc. Other benefits include:
- Near-continuous replication and backup – Recover from any point in time up to the nearest second
- Select the critical Virtual Machines you need to replicate or organize them in a Virtual Protection Group
- Storage array agnostic – Replicate from anything to anything
- Hypervisor agnostic – Transfer between any variations of hypervisors and cloud platforms (VMware to Hyper-V and vice versa)
- Less complex to transfer data and applications
- Built in WAN optimization
- Sandbox test environment
- Instant failover
Cloud Replication with Zerto is offered in the following VPLS data centers:
- Los Angeles, CA
- Ashburn, VA
- Phoenix, AZ
- Bangkok, Thailand
- Hong Kong
Veeam Cloud Connect
VPLS also supports replication to the Cloud services utilizing Veeam which incorporates traditional VPN tunnels to achieve faster recovery times with full network availability. VPLS Cloud resources are consumed on a pay-per-use model during the time the virtual machines are up and running. VPLS supports Microsoft Hyper-V and VMware vSphere and vCloud Director for underlying hypervisors. Veeam Cloud Connect customers can take advantage of a new Veeam Availability Suite v8 feature called Replication from Backup which will allow the virtual machine to be brought up online without impacting the production environment.
Starting from Veeam Availability Suite v8, the need for VPN tunnels has been eliminated with Veeam Cloud Connect which delivers secure backups to the Cloud with AES 256 bit encryption in transit and at rest. Existing Veeam customers will be presented a Cloud repository to send backups to and have full visibility into the backup job task status, storage quota used and even initiate restores. Veeam Backup and Replication Enterprise customers can take full advantage of WAN acceleration technology to reduce bandwidth and backup times. With WAN acceleration enabled customers can achieve up to 50x faster replication, and up to 20x reduction in bandwidth consumption.
