Many businesses struggle with the cost and effort to keep a secondary datacenter site ready just in case a disaster strikes their operating datacenter. Imagine using the AWS cloud as the DR site and take advantage of cloud economics, flexible geographic placement, and as-a-service style administration all while maintaining operational consistency within the VMware platform. VMware has two solutions – VMware Cloud Disaster Recovery and VMware Site Recovery – aimed at providing a flexible approach to protecting your on-prem VMware environments to VMware Cloud on AWS. This session will explore the basics of both solutions and review how either – or both – might be the right solution to help your business’s DR with cost and complexity.
