Cloud DRaaS (Disaster Recovery as a Service)

Protect your Private Cloud infrastructure easily and safely

Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) allows you to protect your Aruba Private Cloud infrastructure quickly, professionally, simply and safely.

By using the self-service web panel via secure connection, you can create directives and Disaster Recovery policies, by choosing the source and destination between your VMware on-premise virtual infrastructures and/or the Aruba datacenters enabled for the Private Cloud service.

In just a few minutes it’s possible to create self-consistent replicas between remote sites and activate a perfectly functional Disaster Recovery process.

Each Disaster Recovery solution has two measurement parameters: the RPO and RTO:

  • the RPO (Recovery Point Objective) describes how much data is left unsynchronized in case of disaster.
  • whereas the RTO (Recovery Time Objective) represents the time required in order to restore your services.
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 RPO 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, guaranteed by a simple and safe self-service control panel which, with a single button, allows you to automatically start the recovery process. In a few seconds the system is able to switch the production workload to the disaster recovery site.

To test the disaster recovery process it’s possible, at any time and very easily, to run a Disaster Recovery test. The test attempts to restore the system after a disaster, by activating the servers on the secondary site, without interfering with the production servers, allowing you to check that the replication and disaster recovery process are working correctly.

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

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