LifeLink Foundation needed to provide business continuity and DR of critical transplant related information to multiple locations and needed to manage DR planning and implementation in a hurricane zone. Learn how VMware & Dell EqualLogic worked together to implement two remote sites providing consolidated virtual storage, snapshot-based backup and recovery.
Virtualized IT infrastructures can simplify management and facilitate business continuity while helping minimize power consumption and procurement costs. Virtualization also helps organizations automate disaster recovery plans. Dell EqualLogic PS Series arrays and VMware® Site Recovery Manager (SRM) software provide integrated, cost-effective, automated site recovery and testing for enterprise data centers.
VMware virtual machines are hardware-independent so any physical server can serve as a recovery target for any virtual machine. Organizations can significantly reduce the cost of hardware for disaster recovery by repurposing underutilized existing servers for recovery targets and disaster recovery testing. VMware Infrastructure also simplifies and accelerates recovery, helping IT organizations meet their time-to-recovery targets.
This technical report will discuss the installation and configuration of Site Recovery Manager with the Dell EqualLogic PS Series storage arrays. It will cover setup, testing, failover, failback and troubleshooting. This document is designed to be used in conjunction with the Administrator Guide for Site Recovery Manager and assumes a prior knowledge of VMware Virtual Infrastructure.
This white paper describes a virtualized infrastructure that applies storage and server virtualization technologies to cost-effectively achieve a flexible, high performance, dynamic IT infrastructure that is simple to manage and scale.
