Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) Features

Certified Replica for Recovery
Automates failover and recovery verification with Virtual Backup and Replication, providing
cost-effective, storage agnostic replication that can scale to large environments, save bandwidth with WAN-friendly data transfer, secure with government grade encryption, and conduct granular backup and recovery.

Automated, Continuous, Service-Oriented DR Testing
Removes the cost and complexity associated with outdated, infrequent and manual DR test procedures. Directly certifies that your DR strategy is sound by frequently testing it against defined objectives.

Certified Recovery Points
Protects against configuration drift and accidental changes that can replicate to the DR site by automatically storing multiple recovery points that are certified through detailed, automated testing procedures.

Pay-Per-Use Reporting for Cloud Service Providers
Each month DRaaS will automatically send a report containing usage information. This saves the provider time and helps them operate more efficiently by eliminating manual reporting processes.

Test, Failover, and Failback
Automates failover and failback processes when an outage occurs in order to maintain availability of your critical services. Uses production network mapping to drastically speed the process of true application failover.

Flexible Replication Options
Maximizes your IT investments, simplifies configuration and decreases application RPOs through DRaaS’ easy to use integration with all major storage vendors. If needed, you can also leverage the zero-footprint host-based replication capabilities built into DRaaS for a complete DR solution in one product.

Automated Network Mapping
Production and DR virtual networks are often not exactly the same. There are two main components to properly managing DR failover, failback and testing between environments that have different networks. The first is ensuring that the applications are properly mapped into the correct networks at the DR site for full functionality and communication, and the second is reconfiguring guest IP addresses at the DR site.

vCloud Director integration
DRaaS integration with vCloud allows a Cloud Service Provider (CSP) to failover a tenant into the cloud, and immediately starts to apply a series of operational policies according to contractual SLAs. It closely aligns with the VMware vCloud strategy and allows CSPs to offer a seamless transition to their cloud for customers that experience major incidents in their production environments.

Always on VMs (continuous dependencies)
It is common for several applications to share common components, such as DNS servers, domain controllers and other middleware. This feature allows applications to be DR tested separately yet reuse the same base services. It supplies more resilience by helping DR planners ensure that related applications are check-pointed and recoverable from a consistent set of common components

User Auditing
DRaaS extends DR compliance monitoring to the activity of DRaaS’s administrators, so that their activities can be audited, a key benefit in highly regulated industries with stringent requirements for audit and reporting.

Web-Oriented Architecture
DRaaS is a web application that can be driven and queried from other applications. This is a key advantage for large environments with multiple tenants and well-structured governance and service delivery processes. For example, Cloud Service Providers that have developed an end user portal and want to provide all catalogued services through it, can invoke DRaaS without needing manually access to the UI. This paves the way for CSPs to provide Recovery as a Service and automate the backend process.

Advanced Reporting that Includes Compliance
DRaaS provides the unmatched ability to measure Recovery Time Actuals and the aging of application snapshots. The enhanced reporting allows auditors, risk officers and other non-IT staff to obtain compliance data on demand and without disrupting data center operations. This also enables users to prove and demonstrate to compliance auditors the definitive actual performance of their DR implementation against objectives.
