EqualLogic Offers Automated DR

NASHUA, N.H. -- EqualLogic, a leading provider of high-performance iSCSI storage area network (SAN) solutions, today announced its collaboration with VMware to deliver end-to-end disaster recovery automation and management through VMware Site Recovery Manager and EqualLogic PS Series SANs. This combination is expected to provide a disaster recovery solution that can be verified and automated to help enterprises maximize the availability of critical services in the event of a data center failure.

Currently, data centers using VMware Infrastructure and EqualLogic’s virtualized SAN solution benefit from consolidation, flexibility and simplicity that provide advantages for disaster recovery operations. Now, EqualLogic is working with VMware to enable VMware Site Recovery Manager to support and seamlessly leverage PS Series Auto-Replication. As a result of this effort, joint customers are expected to be able to automate critical recovery processes and test full recovery of VMware Infrastructure environments that have been replicated between two EqualLogic SANs with minimal impact on production services.

“VMware and EqualLogic share a vision for evolving IT infrastructures to be more flexible, reliable and easy to manage through the use of virtualization and sophisticated automation,” said Parag Patel, vice president, alliances at VMware. “EqualLogic is a trusted partner in the storage market whose commitment to lowering the cost of managing and protecting customers’ data centers aligns with our own.”
