Disaster Recovery (DR) driven by replication is table stakes for primary storage systems, but most vendors’ solutions are very expensive, requiring identical hardware and they are limited in their capabilities. StorONE integrates replication that leverages the Enterprise Storage Platform’s hardware flexibility to lower the TCO of establishing a DR strategy while providing maximum protection from a disaster.
Maximum Disaster Recovery with Minimum TCO
StorONE’s S1:Replicate is not based on snapshots, rather it is a continuous process integrated into the core of the S1 Enterprise Storage Platform. Remote sites stay more in sync and each site can execute an independent snapshot schedule, maximizing data protection. S1:Replicate can use different storage server hardware and media types at each location which dramatically reduces the cost of disaster recovery.
Extreme HA for Mission Critical Applications
S1:Replicate not only protects against site disaster but can also provide extreme high-availability (HA) within a data center or an organization’s campus with synchronous replication. Replication policies are set per volume so mission critical applications can mirror locally before leveraging S1:Replicate’s cascading replication to copy the data to a DR site, keeping the TCO of extreme HA very low.
S1:Replicate can replicate data to our S1:Azure solution. Customers can seamlessly use Azure as a DR Site, or to “burst” workloads to the cloud to deal with unexpected peak demands or use S1:Replicate for optimum workload placement, in the cloud or on-premises. Workloads can run in the cloud without transformation or alteration.
Do More with Replication than DR
Lower the TCO of disaster recovery even further by leveraging S1:Replicate for more than DR. Combine it with our snapshot service, S1:Snap and position your organization to replace backup and archive. Once in place, organizations can meet the 3-2-1 rule of backup without using backup software. Leverage S1:Snap and S1:Replicate to maintain archive copies for decades in remote snapshots.
