Datrium ControlShift: Workload Mobility and DR Orchestration

DR Orchestration for Site to Site Mobility

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.

DR Orchestration for Site to Site Mobility

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.

  1. 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.
  2. 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.”
  3. 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.
  4. 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.

  • Consistent operating environment on prem and in the cloud

10x More Cost-Efficient DR

Fail over to on-demand VMware Cloud on AWS SDDC targets using ControlShift DR plans and store forever incremental, native backups in S3. DR sites are ready when needed, in the cloud, whether for testing or actual failover. Pay for SDDC only when you need it while your data is ready to use on low-cost AWS S3. Efficiently fail back with minimal AWS egress charges by transferring only changed and globally deduplicated data. Select from a broad range of DR sites around the world.

Datrium backups ransomware prevention

Recover from Recent Snapshots or Old Backups

Easily recover from recent snapshots or backups from months or years ago. With converged backup and DR, you have millions of point-in-time consistent recovery points to choose from. This can be critical for ransomware attacks, which often only become apparent months after the initial event.

Failproof DR and Efficient Failback from Public Cloud

Achieve failproof DR. ControlShift automatically checks your plan for health and compliance every 30 minutes, so you can be confident your DR is going to work when you need it. Efficiently fail back with minimal AWS egress charges by transferring only changed and globally deduplicated data. Similar to failover, failback is fully automated.

Datrium Cloud DVX: Cloud Backup Vault for DVX and DRaaS

Datrium Cloud DVX

The easiest and most efficient way to backup your DVX data to the public cloud

Datrium Cloud DVX

Datrium’s Cloud DVX provides an on-demand, integrated, autonomous offsite store for backup and DR images on AWS S3 low-cost storage. It’s offered as software as a service on AWS using your own credentials, or as part of Datrium DRaaS. It uses the same software as the on-prem DVX system.

Storing backups offsite is a required fundamental of IT data protection. Cloud is becoming the natural place to put them. Cloud DVX overcomes the historic obstacles to cloud backup management, enabling simple and automated recoveries of VMs, guest files, or whole data centers.

Benefits of Datrium’s Cloud DVX:

  • Autonomous: Cloud DVX is managed as part of an on-prem DVX or Datrium DRaaS, so you can ignore the complex cloud infrastructure it requires – we manage it for you.
  • Safe and Cost-Efficient: By using Automatrix universal dedupe and compression for S3 and WAN optimization, it lowers storage cost/terabyte/month, and it minimizes egress costs during recovery. Its built-in security eliminates the need for a cloud VPN for backup use. It enables the 3-2-1 model of Data Protection for Datrium: 3+ copies, 2 media types (DVX on prem, S3 on cloud), 1 of which is offsite (S3 on cloud).
  • Fast: For VM recoveries to an on-prem DVX, WAN replication will be much faster than software which lacks on-wire dedupe or sends full backups.

Datrium Cloud DVX

The Bottom Line

With Cloud DVX, cloud-based backup vaulting is invisible, cost-efficient, safe, and fast. With global data efficiency, granular object management, end-to-end security, and massive consolidation of on-premises infrastructure into a single converged cloud data plane, customers can realize dramatic total cost of ownership savings while meeting their RTO, RPO, and DRaaS RCO SLAs.

SimpliVity VDI Solutions with OmniStack

SimpliVity OmniStack is the industry’s first and only globally federated and hyperconverged infrastructure solution. OmniStack combines all of the infrastructure and functions below the hypervisor, eliminating the need for about a dozen discrete infrastructure and software products. By doing so, OmniStack dramatically simplifies IT. Designed and optimized for the virtual environment, it enables dramatic improvements to the management, protection, and performance of virtual workloads – all at a fraction of the cost and extreme reduction in complexity compared to today’s traditional infrastructure stack.

SimpliVity-OmniCube-for-VDI

OmniStack delivers the core functionality of pooling and sharing x86 hardware resources. Its Data Virtualization Platform performs deduplication, compression and optimization of data, which delivers performance and capacity improvements to OmniStack-powered hyperconverged infrastructure; and offers global unified management. OmniStack hyperconvergence is available as a software solution and turnkey hyperconverged infrastructure when packaged on x86 systems. SimpliVity offers two turnkey hyperconverged infrastructure platforms: OmniCube, packaged on 2U servers; and OmniStack Integrated Solution for Cisco UCS, packaged on Cisco Unified Computing Systems.

OmniStack provides an optimal platform for VDI because it:

  • Improves Performance. OmniStack provides inline deduplication, compression and optimization of all data at inception, once and forever, which eliminates IOPS since redundant data is never written to disk. Critical IO resources are reserved for desktops and applications, which prevents boot storms.
  • Consolidates Siloed Infrastructure. OmniStack provides the perfect platform for data center consolidation, merging the infrastructure, management screens and operations of all critical IT applications, including VDI.
  • Provides Native Data Protection. VDI no longer needs to be relegated to “second-class citizen” status in the data center. You can commit to, and fulfill, SLAs to the business while improving RTOs and RPOs for VDI.
  • Improves User Experience. Persistent desktops are the preferred choice by users and the technology most likely to be embraced as it most closely resembles the physical desktops of the past. OmniCube’s inline deduplication, compression, and optimization is that “emerging technology” that changes the cost model, making persistent desktops a reality.

SimpliVity OmniStack is the perfect solution to deliver VDI with the user experience end-users expect and at the cost that you require.
