Ten questions you should ask when choosing a DR solution for your virtualized mission-critical applications
Enterprise application virtualization is no longer an emerging or niche technology. Enterprises of all sizes are deploying applications on virtualized IT infrastructures and clouds, and reaping the benefits of ease of management, simplicity, flexibility, mobility, and cost-effectiveness.
But there’s a speed bump on the virtualization highway. Traditional replication and disaster recovery (DR) solutions were not conceived to deal with the demands created by the virtual paradigm.
With the challenges facing DR for virtualized mission-critical applications, there are certain questions to ask when choosing or evaluating your disaster recovery solution, to ensure its suitability to the virtual paradigm.
- Is it “virtual ready”?
- Can it support your mission-critical application needs?
- Can it provide mobility and migration?
