Beyond Disaster Recovery: Restoring Production Workloads with PlateSpin Forge

1,651 views

Published on

This session explores the two phases of restoring workloads and IT services from an outage or a full-blown disaster. Phase one is the disaster recovery itself, or automatic failover to run protected workloads in a recovery environment after a disruption. Phase two is often overlooked; it returns the protected workloads to the rebuilt or replaced production environment. During this session, you will learn how to configure PlateSpin Forge to handle both of these critical phases.

  3. 3. How to Be Protected DR by Duplication DR by Back-up 3 © Novell, Inc. All rights reserved.
  4. 4. DR by Duplication • Focus is on protecting application – Local cluster – Duplicate hot site • High performance, but at what price? – Near zero RTO, RPO • High cost – Duplicate infrastructure – Cost x2 4 © Novell, Inc. All rights reserved.
  5. 5. DR by Back-up • Focus is on protecting data – Tape back-up – Imaging • Poor performance – Slow RTO, RPO (days) • Cost effective, but at what price? – How do we get the data back in to a useable state? – How long to rebuild the server? 5 © Novell, Inc. All rights reserved.

  7. 7. Workload: The (New) IT Paradigm Application Workload Middleware Operating System A workload is an A workload is A workload or a integrated stack of portable and collection of application, middleware, platform agnostic workloads makes and operating system –it can run in up a business that accomplishes a physical, virtual or service, which is computing task cloud computing what the end user environments consumes 7 © Novell, Inc.

  11. 11. Disaster Recovery and Availability Challenges Disaster recovery and availability replicates whole- server workloads to a virtualized recovery site P P V V Challenges – Before Solution – After 20% protected/over-protected 100% protected 80% under-protected Match protection to Slow daily tape backup; poor RPO workload need Slow recovery time; poor RTO One-click recovery Difficulty testing; can’t meet RTO Fast recovery time Easy to test 11 © Novell, Inc.

  15. 15. How PlateSpin Forge Works ® Step 1: Replicate up to 25 physical or virtual workload to PlateSpin Forge Production Server PlateSpin Forge Step 2: Test workload in new environment to ensure it runs as predicted Production Server PlateSpin Forge Step 3: Production server goes down, switch users to PlateSpin Forge PlateSpin Forge in minutes Users 15 © Novell, Inc.

  17. 17. Failback Overview Failback is a build-in PlateSpin Forge feature that ® leverages workload portability technology to restore physical or virtual production workloads Production Site DR Site 17 © Novell, Inc. All rights reserved.
  18. 18. Failback Flexibility • Failback can be used to restore workloads to: – The same or different physical hardware – A virtual environment OR Physical Server - IBM OR Physical Server - Dell Virtual Host: ESX, Hyper-V, Xen 18 © Novell, Inc. All rights reserved.
  19. 19. Incremental Failback • Failback supports both full and incremental replications. • Incremental failback can be used to restore the production workload that contains original data Incremental failback will only transfer changes that occurred since the workload has been failed-over. 19 © Novell, Inc. All rights reserved.
  20. 20. Failback, Test and Cut Over Step 1: Failback the workload Step 2: Test the workload in production, while users are still connected to the failed-over workload Step 3: Perform incremental failback to sync changes and switch users over to the production workload 20 © Novell, Inc.
