Business Resilience in Virtual Environments

One of the promises of server virtualization is improved high availability and more efficient disaster recovery

One of the promises of server virtualization is improved high availability and more efficient disaster recovery. But according to the Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG) to achieve these goals with virtualization requires the modification of existing processes. It also requires looking beyond the virtualization vendor's HA and DR products to achieve SLAs for all workloads.

Mark Bowker and Lauren Whitehouse, analysts from ESG, recently put together an exclusive report on this topic called “Business Resilience in Virtual Environments” that explores:

• The advantages and challenges of server virtualization for improved business resiliency

• The limitations of the virtualization platform vendor's offerings for HA and DR

• Misconceptions about common business resiliency terms such as high availability, fault tolerance and disaster recovery

• How to use a combination of third-party solutions and new processes such as V2V, P2V, V2P and V2C to meet your application SLAs and DR objectives

This report is available exclusively from Marathon. You can download a copy here.
