Hyperconverged Infrastructure for BCDR using EVO RAIL

Shortly after VMware announced its EVO Rail initiative, whereby hardware partners could start delivering a very dense compute, storage, and networking solution within a wholly-contained appliance – I started exploring the data protection aspects of an EVO Rail solution.  The nice folks in ESG’s video studio have produced a whole series on this … in two-minute increments.

In the earlier video capsules, we looked at the protection of EVO Rail systems in production.  For part 6 in the series, let’s look at EVO RAIL as perhaps the ideal BC/DR infrastructure.

After all, it has everything you need for a second site … so why not drop one in an alternate location (or co-lo site) and start replicating to it?  And for DRaaS providers, perhaps a self-contained EVO might be an interesting option over a shared infrastructure for some clients?  Check out the video for more details:

  

Please feel free to check out the earlier installments in the series:

DP considerations for EVO Rail – part 1 – an overview of EVO RAIL and its data protection ramifications

DP considerations for EVO Rail – part 2 – VMware’s own data protection options

DP considerations for EVO Rail – part 3 – EMC’s EVO RAIL and its data protection possibilities

DP considerations for EVO Rail – part 4 – Dell’s EVO RAIL and its data protection possibilities

DP considerations for EVO Rail – part 5 – HP’s EVO RAIL and its data protection possibilities

In the next few weeks, I will be releasing the last of the seven segments  … on channel partner considerations for EVO RAIL systems.  As always, thanks for watching.
