SimpliVity RapidDR

When disaster strikes, every second counts. The Ponemon Institute estimates the average cost of downtime is close to $9,000 per minute. Comprehensive disaster recovery (DR) plans are critical for mitigating risks, ensuring regulatory compliance and minimizing disruption in the event of equipment failures, malware outbreaks or catastrophes. But many organizations are held back by inefficient legacy data replication and disaster recovery products that squander bandwidth and storage capacity, and are difficult to configure and automate. Manually intensive, errorprone recovery processes can hinder service restoration efforts, impairing user productivity, customer satisfaction and revenue.

SimpliVity’s RapidDR solution simplifies and accelerates offsite disaster recovery through automation. The solution extends the inherent data efficiencies of SimpliVity hyperconverged infrastructure, slashing Recovery Point Objectives (RPOs) and Recovery Time Objectives (RTOs) from days or hours to minutes.

Use SimpliVity RapidDR to efficiently protect enterprise data centers, regional sites, remote offices or branch offices—even over bandwidthconstrained WAN links.

Rapid Recovery through Automation

Minimize service disruptions by automating remote site recovery, eliminating protracted manual recovery processes. Administrators can automatically power on and reconfigure VMs with a single mouse click, based on preconfigured worklows. Recovery workflows include the order in which VMs are powered on, IP address and other network settings, resource centers, pre- and post-recovery scripts, and more.

Simplified DR Setup and Execution

Streamline setup and avoid complicated scripting exercises that consume time, resources and budget. An intuitive, VM-centric graphical user interface guides the system administrator through the configuration process in five easy steps. SimpliVity RapidDR simplifies the recovery planning process and replaces complicated, manual runbooks.

Improved Compliance and Risk Mitigation

Ensure strict compliance with stringent disaster recovery and business continuity regulations. Automatically create well documented and fully validated DR plans and detailed historical reports for compliance audits. Mitigate financial risks and legal exposure.
