The Peak 10 Recovery Cloud

The Peak 10 Recovery Cloud provides a cost-effective, highly flexible disaster recovery (DR) solution that ensures rapid recovery of mission-critical applications and data.

Recovery Cloud

Built on leading-edge technologies and drawing upon Peak 10’s expertise in cloud-based DR, it enables customers to take advantage of the reduced costs associated with multi-tenancy while accessing the necessary cloud resources to restore services in the event of a site failure ― quickly, securely and regardless of where their production environment is housed.

Benefits

  • Continuous data protection (CDP) versus scheduled replication happening a few times a day, resulting in less data loss in the event of a failure
  • Replicates customers’ VMware cloud servers no matter where they are housed
  • Rapid recovery times
  • Customizable RPO/RTO to meet business requirements
  • Supports HIPAA- and PCI-governed environments
  • Replicated data is compressed or can take advantage of existing WAN optimization solutions
  • Disaster recovery services specialists available 24/7/365 to execute testing and actual recovery processes

Response and Recovery in Minutes

With the Peak 10 Recovery Cloud, failovers can be initiated within minutes. Customers can select the point in time at which a test or failover occurs at the time of execution. As a result, they can test or failover to a point in time before a malady occurred.

Service level agreements (SLAs) are available that specify response time, recovery time objectives and recovery point objectives to best meet customers’ needs.

In the event that a declaration is made to failover, Peak 10’s 24x7x365 staff is trained to initiate the failover process. Peak 10 will also assist with other aspects of the disaster recovery plan including updating public domain name system (DNS) records hosted by Peak 10.

How It Works

The Recovery Cloud consists of two elements: cloud replication and a recovery resource pool.

Cloud Replication

Cloud replication is a Peak 10 managed service that is used to move data between two cloud environments. A software-based platform with associated managed services is used to replicate production systems running on the VMware® vSphere hypervisor.

Production systems can be housed on the customer’s premises, within a Peak 10 environment or at a third-party data center. The Peak 10 Recovery Cloud also allows for unmanaged hosts to be the production source.

Features:

  • Secure, scalable platform does not require significant changes to the existing environment or underlying storage platform.
  • Disaster recovery environment can be configured to meet customers’ complex needs, including multiple IP segments and virtual local area networks (VLANs).
  • Customers can securely replicate data into a multi-tenant environment; visibility is restricted so customers can’t see other customer details.
  • Continuous data protection (CDP) style replication ensures data and applications are backed up in near real-time.

Cloud Recovery Resource Pool

The Peak 10 Recovery Cloud also includes a shared pool of compute resources that customers subscribe to in order to run their replicated systems for testing or actual failover purposes.

Connected to Peak 10’s multi-tiered storage infrastructure and robust core network, these resources are provisioned and presented based on customer needs. Compute and storage can be adjusted based on performance, availability and scalability requirements.

Peak 10 manages all aspects of the underlying technology, including maintenance and providing the associated data center services, hypervisor and Windows operating system licenses.
