Business Continuity in the Xynomix Virtual Data Centre
If you need more than just your databases to be restored quickly when the next disaster happens, then you need the security and flexibility of the Xynomix Virtual Data Centre (XVDC). We replicate your machines – physical or virtual – in the XVDC, so that they’re ready to take over at a moment’s notice.
We use award-winning Zerto and Veeam technology to create standby VMware virtual machines. Zerto uses hypervisor-based replication, which moves asynchronous replication from the physical storage and disk arrays to the virtualization abstraction layer. In other words, the replication is carried out elsewhere, so it's not going to affect performance in your production environment.
What this means for you is that it allows for storage-agnostic replication. It doesn’t matter how data is stored; a virtual machine can be replicated to another virtual machine which could be using a different storage technology. You don’t have to replace expensive hardware, or worry about hardware faults. It’s a way to protect and recover whole applications – not just data. Zerto gives you a 5-day journal of snapshots, meaning you can make restorations to any point during that timescale.
It's software-defined tech, which is perfect for business continuity, because:
- It’s flexible.
- It’s forgiving of change, in a way that hardware can’t be.
- It can adapt intelligently to errors which would cause expensive hardware to stall.
- It invites self-service (or we can do it for you!).
