Suppose you are the CIO of a state government agency and you decided to move your systems to the cloud to save money. You knew that keeping your servers, operating systems and databases on site was too costly. And suppose this move truly enabled you to do more with less and that your stakeholders loved the improved performance.

Migrating away from end-of-life systems and moving data to the cloud improved life for the people you serve because they now had access to information anytime, anywhere and on any device. And your capital expenditures also dropped dramatically. But then it turned out that just migrating to the cloud did not solve all your security problems. You realize you are still responsible for the security of your data.

In this white paper, we address:

  • Keys to surviving ransomware attacks
  • What to look for in a backup and recovery solution
  • Availability for the Always-On Enterprise™

At the center of your virtual infrastructure is the vCenter Server Appliance (VCSA), and it is very important for High Availability. If it or its components — like the Platform Services Controller (PSC) — are ever lost or corrupt, you need to restore them immediately. However, there is a specific order to how things need to be restored, and sometimes it is difficult and extra steps are necessary. In our technical white paper, we have all of the information to make this restore easy with all the different steps detailed and screenshots to better understand the commands. You will also learn how to protect your vSphere Distributed Switches as well.

Read this technical white paper to learn how to:

  • Properly back up the VSCA and components
  • Decipher what needs to be restored and what needs to be redeployed
  • Make your recoveries easier

A transformation is underway in data centers around the globe as organizations transition from legacy storage solutions to all-flash storage arrays. All-flash provides significant benefits for businesses, such as greater capacity, scalability and predictable high performance. But the move to all-flash data centers does not come without some challenges and an element of increased risk of data loss.

Read this new IDG white paper and learn more about:

  • All-flash data center requirements and challenges
  • How to provide effective data protection in an all-flash data center
  • Best-of-breed partnership between Veeam® and Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE), and how this joint solution will help
  • And more!

Be it banking institutions, credit unions, investment firms, insurance companies or the customers themselves, all sides of the financial services industry require — and have come to expect — ever-ready, always-available services. Success in providing continuity falls to IT who holds sway over the solutions your company will ultimately deliver.

But, a business continuity/disaster recovery (BCDR) plan will not only keep everything up and running. It also will help you review the weaknesses and threats to your organization, becoming more proactive and improving IT service delivery without doubt.

While BCDR is a complex and broad process, take a look into this simple and practical guide to learn key tips on how to easily integrate BCDR best practices, such as:

  • Backup strategy
  • Recovery strategy
  • Virtualization failover
  • Recovery time and point objectives (RTPO™) of < 15 min
  • Application workload failover
  • And more!

Make the difference at your workplace. And, remember that you can save the day!

Keeping an education system’s network environment running is complex and demanding, because education environments have the need to provide access to data and applications to faculty, staff and students — each with unique needs.

Think about it — nearly any loss of service will have a major impact on a school’s ability to function: registration, on-premises learning management systems and the usual suspects like directory services, email, print services, etc. Outages for any of these would bring a significant part of the educational institution to a halt.

In this book, we’ll show how to proactively develop your business continuity/disaster recovery (BCDR) plan, empowering IT to efficiently respond to a major loss of service (which we all generally refer to as the disaster) today, by:

  1. Defining the tiers of applications and services
  2. Having the required recovery time and point objectives (RTPO™) in place
  3. Creating lists of system dependencies
  4. Testing to ensure your plan is more than just a theory

Gain confidence in your BCDR plan so you know that when (not if) disaster strikes, that you can save the day!

Customers are increasingly mobile and reliant on digital devices for business, entertainment, social activities, shopping, paying bills —nearly every aspect of their purchasing journey with service providers.

This shift in business can drive new revenue streams, but it also puts pressure on IT to ensure that all applications are uninterrupted and work on a 24.7.365 basis. If the network goes down for any reason, at any time, digital life comes to a halt.

Data Availability is the lifeblood of today’s modern communications service providers. But not all Availability solutions deliver the same level of functionality, reliability and performance. In evaluating potential Availability solutions, IT decision-makers should focus on three critical areas:

  1. Ensuring continuity
  2. Enabling analytics and visibility
  3. Achieving digital transformation agility

This technical brief provides an overview of the disaster and data recovery solutions that Veeam® offers for VMware and Hyper-V environments and Veeam’s unique feature set.

As Federal agencies add all kinds of workloads — including their most important tier 1 applications — to their virtual environment, they’ll need high-end scalability, reliability and Availability to address 24x7 workload needs. Virtualization and many servers result in gigantic data volumes, and using the best tool to back up VMs is imperative. With features that set it apart in the VM backup market, Veeam Software offers the added value that is needed to enable Availability for the Always-On Enterprise™.

One highlight is Veeam’s ability to restore a server and its services to users in just two minutes, plus the time for the operating system to start — regardless of the VM size. This feature has been part of Veeam Backup & Replication™ for more than five years.

Specifically, this white paper:

  • Illustrates the challenges that big virtualization systems bring and how Veeam addresses those with market-unique features
  • Documents why VMware vSphere and Microsoft Hyper-V API-based backups are “not the same” across multiple backup vendors
  • Demonstrates why it’s important to enhance those APIs for better performance and virtualization support
