Hosting.com recently launched our SAN2SAN Replication recovery solution – providing continuous replication between your on-premise SAN environment to an identical SAN environment at a Hosting.com Datacenter.
SAN2SAN Replication is a fully managed service offering which leverages Continuous Data Protection (CDP) and Continuous Remote Replication (CRR) using EMC RecoverPoint. What this means is your data will be securely and intelligently replicated to a world-class, geographically-dispersed Hosting.com datacenter while maintaining data consistency, also known as write order fidelity.
Hosting.com also leverages VMware Site Recovery Manager for orchestration. In the event of a disaster or outage, with the click of a button, your mission-critical Virtual Machine guests will failover to a Hosting.com Datacenter with a guaranteed Recovery Time Objective (RTO) of four hours or less.
Traditionally, testing of disaster recovery plans was expensive and time-consuming. And without testing, data integrity and application availability is a major risk. According to Gartner, the cost of a full disaster recovery test with a tape-based system can cost $100,000 or more for each execution. SAN2SAN Replication includes quarterly failover testing to guarantee that in the event of a live failover, your mission-critical applications will be available and functional, giving you peace of mind.
In the event of a failover, Hosting.com will continue to protect your data at a Hosting.com tertiary recovery site — your mission-critical data and application are always protected.
SAN2SAN Replication Product Demonstration
