Datrium’s ControlShift is a SaaS application that orchestrates disaster and cybercrime recovery across DVXs and to VMware Cloud on AWS. Users can log-in, create recovery plans and run them for test, planned, and unplanned migration of workloads. Delivered on Automatrix technology, ControlShift makes recoveries instant, failproof, cost effective, and easy.
- Failproof DR with continuous compliance checks
- One-click failover and failback between data centers
- Instant RTO and RPO for DR
- Orchestrates disaster and ransomware recovery
DR Orchestration for Site to Site Mobility
DVX: A disaggregated HCI system with independent scaling of performance and capacity.
Cloud DVX: A cloud backup service that runs the Datrium DVX software and stores backups in S3 in a native compressed and deduplicated form.
ControlShift: A DR orchestration service that executes DR plans and provisions and monitors SDDCs in VMware Cloud on AWS.
Production Site: A protected DVX system that replicates native forever-incremental backups to on-premises DR Site(s) or to Cloud DVX, a cloud backup site.
DR Site: A DVX system used for recovery purposes. Serves as a repository of backups and can be used for instant failover of workloads from the Production Site.
ControlShift Basic Topologies
ControlShift supports a variety of basic topologies that can be combined to satisfy the most demanding and complex enterprise data protection needs.
- DVX (protected) to DVX (failover) – In a simple two-site topology, a single DVX System serves as both a backup and failover site. The protected site sends backups to the failover site. ControlShift orchestrates instant failover to a backup/failover site with no additional data transfer at recovery time.
- DVX (protected) to DVX (backup) to DVX (failover) – The protected site sends backups to both the failover site and a backup site. This topology is useful for extra protection, for longer archiving, or as a method of recovering from ransomware attacks that require “going back in time.”
- DVX (protected) to Cloud DVX (backup) to DVX (failover) – This is an example of a three-site topology using Cloud DVX as a backup site instead of an on-premises DVX.
- DVX (protected) to Cloud DVX to DVX (backup) – A cost-effective cloud backup and archiving solution that uses a single cloud backup site. It can be used in cases where the on-premises hardware remains operational (e.g. disasters due to user errors or ransomware attacks). It can be also used for physical disasters with a new site replacing the old protected site.
