IBM SmartCloud Virtualized Server Recovery

IBM SmartCloud® Virtualized Server Recovery is a secure, fully managed disaster recovery solution that incorporates IBM’s world-class cloud infrastructure. The solution offers two tiers of service to accommodate a range of business needs and budgets:



This tier employs dedicated, always-available virtual machines to help ensure the most rapid recovery for mission-critical servers. Gold-tier clients can achieve a near-zero recovery point objective (RPO) and a recovery time objective (RTO) of about one minute from client-initiated failover.



The Silver tier uses shared resources to help reduce costs, but still enables a 30-minute RTO and a near-zero RPO. This tier is ideal for companies that want high-speed failover and failback capabilities, but do not require an “always available” infrastructure.


IBM SmartCloud® Virtualized Server Recovery service provides world-class automation and cloud tools to help speed recovery times and increase the reliability of your server recovery.
