You Wished !!!
There shall be no single point of failure and business continuity with no data loss in Multi-Cloud environments
There shall be scalability with reduced cost in Multi-Cloud Environments
There shall be centralized management tool for heterogeneous storage management in Multi-Cloud Environment
There shall be storage replication between on-premise and cloud storage
There shall be automatic and orchestrated way for creation and use of snapshots to use cloud data for Dev-Ops, reporting and analytics in Multi-Cloud Environment
All your wishes are the commandments for us ... you spoke ... we listened ... and now IBM is proudly introducing “IBM FlashSystem 9100 Multi-Cloud Solution for Business Continuity and Data Reuse”
" Looking to integrate with cloud orchestration and interoperate with on-premises existing storage system !
Thinking of doing Storage based replication from On-premise to Public Cloud ! "
Look no further !!
Think no further !!
Leveraging VMware Site Recovery Manager and IBM Spectrum Virtualize for Public Cloud, IBM’s Multi Cloud business continuity solution is catering to all you need.
The shift towards Cloud Infrastructure clients are looking to take advantage of scalability and reduce costs of public Cloud for workloads. Within infrastructure clients most often deploy backup, disaster recovery as one of the main use case in hybrid Cloud environments as cloud-based solutions.
Business continuity in Multi-Cloud environments provides advantages like,
- Reduce the Capex /Opex cost by running disaster recovery in Public Cloud leveraging pay-as-go model
- While Production data resides as on-premise the disaster recovery infrastructure can be built with required RTO/RPO and can be provisioned in cloud
- Organization looking for optimizing their existing heterogeneous storage infrastructure with centralized storage management tool between on-premise and cloud environments
The IBM FlashSystem 9100 Solution for Business Continuity and Data Reuse, a relationship enabled between on-premises IBM FlashSystem 9100 running IBM Spectrum Virtualize and an instance of Spectrum Virtualize for Public Cloud on IBM Cloud infrastructure.
Wonder how it work? Let the diagram below help you visualize the architectural overview of the solution
IBM Spectrum Virtualize for Public Cloud is software that is deployed on IBM Cloud infrastructure to virtualize cloud block storage for virtualized or physical application running in the public Cloud. Native IP based storage replication IBM Spectrum Virtualize for Public Cloud provides a new storage-based replication services for hybrid cloud solution to combine on-premises and cloud storage for greater flexibility at lower cost across a range of RPO/RTO targets. IBM Spectrum Virtualize for Public Cloud only enables data replication and migration between local storage and the IBM Cloud, and between IBM Cloud data centres. Integration with VMware plug-in like Site Recovery Manager, this hybrid cloud solution uses a fully tested IBM Storwize Site Recovery Adapter (SRA) to deliver business continuity across a wide range of failures. It further brings flexibility to an organization by enabling migration of virtual infrastructure workloads between data centre and cloud.
With data in IBM Cloud new age use cases like using data for Dev-Ops, reporting and analytics clients are looking for quick access to data copies and automated way of managing and maintaining the copies of data. IBM Spectrum Copy data management provides data re-use capabilities as a part of Multi Cloud Business continuity and data re-use solutions. IBM Spectrum CDM is used directly on the IBM Spectrum Virtualize for Public Cloud volumes through a set of integrated APIs.
IBM Spectrum Copy data management can be used for
Automatic and orchestrated way for creation and use of snapshots, simplify management of data copies by efficiently maintaining the versions of data copies residing in storage front ended by IBM Spectrum Virtualize for Public Cloud. It can be used to leverage high value use-case such as automated disaster recovery across cloud service providers.
