Growing security threats, such as ransomware attacks, combined with the potential outages caused by natural disasters, operational or human errors, make Disaster Recovery (DR) and Business Continuity (BC) a must have strategy for any enterprise IT organization. But executing on the DR/BC strategy without cutting corners or breaking the bank isn’t a trivial effort.
ClearSky Data’s innovative approach to cloud storage service at the edge has taken DR to the next level:
If the primary data center goes down, taking that Edge Cache with it, an IT administrator can immediately use the ClearSky Storage Manager web dashboard to migrate data volumes or snapshot clones to the DR site, where they are exposed for users via the Edge Cache in that location. In VMware environments, an administrator can also access the ClearSky Service through the vCenter to perform application-specific migrations.
