vCloud Air Benefits

Saurabh Chandratre
Director Solutions Architect - EMEA & APAC at Blue Medora
The projects that I have delivered on vCloud Air have definitely helped clients in having a full DR solution in cloud, for their head office as well as for the remote sites. The solution helped the customers reduce costs and recovery time for hosting their DR environment in vCloud Air, rather than the service provider. Projects: * The customer required the disaster recovery (DR) solution for internal VDI desktops and servers during a data center relocation. * DR to be cloud-based using the Replication-as-a-Service to protect around 100 VMs. * Active-passive setup for physical SQL and Exchange Servers hosted on-prem and standy servers in IaaS in the vCloud Air Project, to be completed within tight time frames for a customer that outsources internal IT services to multiple organizations. Solutions: * Performed discovery and assessment of the existing environment. * Provisioned and integrated cloud environments including the on-premise cloud networking. * Replicated production workloads into the cloud, created cloud VDI images, SQL/exchange in IaaS and conducted DR tests. Results: * The Cloud DRaaS solution provided the organization with new levels of flexibility and cost control, together with rapid expansion capability. * A key example was the request and provisioning of an additional 6TB of cloud storage within 24 hours. * Data center migration successfully de-risked.
