Nutanix Adds HCI Business Continuity Capabilities
May 12, 2020
has made several new capabilities in its hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI)
software and AHV hypervisor to protect business-critical applications
and maintain continuous business operations in the face of a possible
disaster. New capabilities include advanced automation for recovering
applications and data, support for seamless multi-site disaster recovery
(DR), synchronous replication for workloads running on AHV, and a
near-zero data loss with “near sync” replication for recovery point
objective (RPO) times of approximately 20 seconds.
Unmatched Near Sync Disaster Recovery: Nutanix now supports near sync replication with an RPO of only about 20 seconds, a 3x improvement from its already industry-leading technology. Nutanix is the only leading HCI vendor to offer a 20-second RPO.
Synchronous Data Replication for Nutanix AHV: Synchronous replication, or the nearly instantaneous replication of data between multiple locations, is now natively supported on the Nutanix AHV hypervisor. AHV can be used by customers to deliver a highly available service for their most important workloads, such as virtual desktop infrastructure, databases, and general server virtualization.
DR Orchestration with Runbooks: The latest release gives customers more flexibility and control over the end-to-end recovery process, with more granular control to focus DR resources toward targeted applications.
“Our business users expect a zero
recovery point objective, which guarantees no data loss when a failover
occurs following a datacenter outage,” said Delfim Da Costa, System and
Infrastructure Manager at Infomil, an IT spin-off of a large European
retailer and a Nutanix customer since 2015. “We are delighted to now use
Nutanix’s AHV virtualization and to maintain the highest possible SLA
for our production workloads.”
