Enabling Multi-Site Protection and Recovery for VMware Clouds

By Rawlinson Rivera • March 20, 2018

Cohesity solutions do many things that make our customers happy. One key capability among them: Cohesity’s converged DataPlatform offers native replication from a secondary storage platform.

Organizations using Cohesity have access to one of the many cloud storage features that are included with Cohesity’s DataPlatform. Any data or virtual machine that is stored and protected in a Cohesity cluster can be easily configured for multi-site replication.

In some cases, replication can be used as a disaster recovery solution, enabling data replication from a local on-premises cluster to another cluster running at a secondary site or even a public cloud. These procedures can be implemented in the form of a system policy, which impacts the infrastructure manageability and introduces safer forms of operations.

Combining Cohesity with VMware Cloud Foundation

Because of my long history and advocacy for VMware, one of my favorite use cases is to combine Cohesity with VMware Cloud Foundation. This is great for organizations looking to adopt VMware Cloud Foundation as their preferred infrastructure solution for their software-defined datacenter. They can easily protect and replicate virtual machines and data to a secondary site for disaster recovery.

The same approach can be taken for test and development purposes, as well as other potential use cases.

The take away from all of these scenarios?

Together, VMware and Cohesity are focused on enabling the journey of adopting the cloud.

Take a look at the demonstration below and see how simple it is to configure and navigate the UI. You’ll find a simplified process to protect, replicate, and recover multiple VMs in a multi-site infrastructure.
