This slide depicts the challenges associated with disaster recovery on a physical infrastructure, including a set of identical hardware between two different sites, idle hardware, and the complex recovery process from configuring hardware, installing the operating system, configuring the operating system, installing a backup and restore agent, and beginning recovery.
This slide depicts additional challenges of physical recovery, and the associated pain points and needs.
This graph depicts survey results of company IT decision makers who were asked the question: Which of the following best describes your company’s current status regarding server virtualization? Most companies have already begun virtualizing production—even if just at their headquarters. If they haven’t implemented virtualization, most plan to within the next 12 months. The natural extension of this is virtualized recovery.
This chart depicts survey results of IT decision makers who were asked to rate the importance of several server recovery objectives for their company’s [V2V OR V2V AND P2V: virtual] [P2V: physical] servers. Percents based on a 7-point scale where 1 is “not important at all” and 7 is “extremely important”. Reducing risk associated with human error , improving scalability and reducing cost , time and complexity to recover are also important among nearly two-thirds. Minimizing data loss and improving reliability are the most important server recovery objectives, along with reducing human error due to manual recovery operations and improving scalability to meet increasing recovery needs.
This slide depicts the way our service can address the pain points of physical recovery with virtualized server recovery and lists associated benefits.
As a fully managed cloud service, you can recover your virtualized or non-virtualized servers with this service. Your data is backed up on a virtualized cloud infrastructure at IBM’s secure, hardened recovery center. By incorporating automation and advanced cloud management technologies, virtualized server recovery eliminates most manual recovery steps and greatly improves recovery reliability. Virtualization software eliminates the onerous (and sometimes impossible) chore of trying to recover your applications on non-like hardware. As an optional service, data replication and backup options can be purchased from IBM, in addition to the Virtualized Server Recovery service.
This slide depicts how our service supports mixed server environments at diverse locations.
This slide depicts the processes by which our service assists clients in server recovery.
This slide represents the range of our success stories.
