Commitment to customer service excellence 2006 MicroAge Lose your data, risk losing your business. What to do when IT system failure is not an option. 2006 MicroAge Introduction/overview Why should we care? Two sides of business continuity: To sustain access to your data: High availability To save your business: Disaster recovery

2006 MicroAge High availability A solution for eliminating risks of a single-point failure by using secondary (redundant) facilities or equipment Achieves real-time synchronization of data Provides an immediate- or near-immediate response to system failures depending on technologies used, needs and technical constraints Internal system or via third-party (co-location) Remote solution: Second site usually located within 10 kilometres Localized solution: disk redundancy, server redundancy (load balancing,

failovers), duplication of servers power supply * * Separate from, and complementary to, disaster recovery solutions * * 2006 MicroAge Disaster recovery A solution for backing up your files and applications more efficiently and accessing them more quickly after a failure or outage. Caused by natural disaster, human error, internal/external attacks Essential attributes:

Includes plans and processes for protecting digital resources and restoring access following a disruption Linked to a sound, company-wide crisis management strategy Includes all of the stages required for a quick recovery Involves input of all IT resource people: Technicians Managers Users

2006 MicroAge Disaster Recovery: Why it Matters Business without business at risk continuity plan

= Every year, one out of 500 data centers will experience a severe disaster (McGladrey and Pullen) 43% of companies experiencing disasters never re-open, and 29% close within two years (McGladrey and Pullen) 93% of businesses that lost their data center for 10 days went bankrupt within one year (National Archives & Records Administration) Standards for availability are rising Faster pace of business more critical change Intense competitive environment requires high SLA

Number and severity of threats increasing Industry-specific compliance laws and regulations (e.g., Sarbanes-Oxley Act) 2006 MicroAge Challenges of DR with physical infrastructure Require identical hardware for recovery Because of hardware dependencies Double costs, increases complexity Site A Site B

2006 MicroAge Challenges of DR with physical infrastructure Require identical hardware for recovery Because of hardware dependencies Double costs, increases complexity Idle hardware Need standby hardware for faster RTO Repurposing servers at time of disaster is labor-intensive and time-consuming Site A Site B Recovery

Target 2006 MicroAge Challenges of DR with physical infrastructure Require identical hardware for recovery Hardware dependencies double costs & increase complexity Site A Site B Idle hardware Need standby hardware for faster RTO Repurposing servers at time of disaster is labour-intensive and time-consuming Slow, complex recovery process

Different solutions for different availability tiers Separate procedures for system and data disks Separate procedures for desktop PCs Multi-step recovery processes Recovery Target Configure hardware Install OS Config Install OS backup/ restore

agent Start Singlestep automatic recovery 2006 MicroAge Why Virtualization? Adding value Increased performance with fewer servers Improved data security, backup & recovery (redundant files, applications, operating systems) Greater flexibility, scalability on demand

Simplified configuration, operation, manageability Lowering costs Reduced cost of ownership Lower energy, cooling costs 2006 MicroAge A Hybrid physical/virtual solution Best of both worlds IBM hardware (IBM DS series storage, IBM Blade Centers and servers) VMware software

2006 MicroAge VMware solutions overview VMware High Availability VMware FaultTolerance VMware Consolidated Backup (VCB)

VMware Site Recovery Manager (SRM) 2006 MicroAge High Availability vServices VMware High Availability: All servers and applications protected against component and complete system failure. Only One-Click to configure! X 2006 MicroAge VMware FaultTolerance

Application protection against hardware failures, with NO down time that is Application and Operating System Independent. X 2006 MicroAge DS4/5000 & VCB Benefits Eliminates backup windows Reduces the load on ESX Servers by moving the process to Proxy server Integrates with the existing backup tools and technologies already in place

Eliminates the need to run a backup agents on every virtual machine Avoids congesting and overloading the data center network infrastructure by enabling LAN-free backup Lowest cost VMware backup and recovery solution, when combined with existing data protection software Backs up virtual machines that are powered off http://www.vmware.com/products/vi/consolidated_backup.html 2006 MicroAge Advantages of Virtual DR Virtual machines are portable Virtual hardware can be automatically configured Test and failover can be automated (minimizes human error) The need for idle hardware is reduced

Costs are lowered, and the quality of service is raised 2006 MicroAge Site Recovery Manager (SRM) Simplifies and automates the disaster recovery processes Works with VMware Infrastructure to enable faster, more reliable, affordable disaster recovery When you create a VM, you specify a secondary site and a Recovery Point Objective (RPO) Everything else is taken care of automatically

Site Recovery Manager leverages VMware and DS4/5000 ERM to transform disaster recovery 2006 MicroAge VMware SRM At A Glance Protected Site X VirtualCenter Recovery Site Site Recovery Manager Datastore Groups

VirtualCenter Site Recovery Manager Array Replication Datastore Groups 2006 MicroAge SRM: Key Benefits Expand disaster recovery protection Now any workload in a VM can be protected with minimal incremental effort and cost Reduce time to recovery

As soon as disaster is declared, a single button kicks off recovery sequence for hundreds of VMs Increase reliability of recovery Replication of system state ensures a VM has all it needs to startup Hardware independence eliminates failures due to different hardware Easier testing based on actual failover sequence allows more frequent and more realistic tests 2006 MicroAge Summary Site Recovery Manager Leverages VMware Infrastructure to Make Disaster Recovery Rapid Automate disaster recovery process Eliminate complexities of traditional recovery Reliable

Ensure proper execution of recovery plan Enable easier, more frequent tests Manageable Centrally manage recovery plans Make plans dynamic to match environment Affordable Utilize recovery site infrastructure Reduce management costs 2006 MicroAge DS series overview: Key features Synchronous, asynchronous and WOC mirroring modes

Enables administrators to choose the replication method that best meets protection, distance or performance requirements Dynamic mode switching without suspending the mirror Enables administrators to accommodate changing bandwidth requirements without sacrificing protection application and Suspend / resume mirroring with delta resynchronization

Helps reduce vulnerability associated with reestablishing the mirror Read-only mirror access (includes FlashCopy creation) Helps enable the remote data to be utilized prior to a disaster without sacrificing protection of the primary site data 2006 MicroAge DS4/5000 Enhanced Remote Mirroring (ERM) Storage-based data replication Provides ongoing, real-time replication of a logical drive from one storage subsystem to another Three mirroring modes

Asynchronous, synchronous & writeorder consistency modes Mirror A Volume A Cross mirroring Depending on RTO, RPO and Cost Licensed by storage system

SAN / WAN Metro Mirror Global Copy Global Mirror Mirror B Volume B Not by host or capacity tiers Enables affordable automated Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity 2006 MicroAge
