By using the self-service web panel via secure connection, you can create Disaster Recovery plans and policies, by choosing the source (Primary site) and the destination (Secondary site) from your VMware on-premise virtual infrastructures and Aruba data centers providing the Private Cloud service.

In a matter of minutes you can create self-consistent replicas between remote sites and activate a Disaster Recovery process.

Each Disaster Recovery solution has two measurement parameters:


  • RPO (Recovery Point Objective): indicates the data loss tolerance of your process in case of disaster.
  • RTO (Recovery Time Objective): represents the time required in order to restore your services on the disaster recovery site.
The replication system used by the service is based on Zerto technology, which optimizes, deduplicates and compresses the data to be protected guaranteeing minimum impact and reducing the RTO to periods which can vary from a few seconds to a few minutes, even for international distances.

A low RTO is ensured by easy use, a simple and safe web panel which, in a single step, allows you to automatically start the recovery process. In just a few seconds the system is able to switch the production workload to the disaster recovery site.

To verify your disaster recovery process you can simply run a Disaster Recovery test at any time. The test attempts to restore the system, by activating the servers on the Secondary site, without interfering with the production servers (Primary site), allowing you to check that the replication and disaster recovery process are working correctly.

Like with all Aruba services, this solution also comes with the “Managed” option. Consider letting our qualified technical team fully manage your Disaster Recovery solution.

To activate this service you need to have a Private Cloud infrastructure
