This guide will help you leverage opportunities in the public cloud in ways that make sense no matter where you are on the cloud adoption spectrum. If you are running a VMware vSphere®-powered Data Center, it may be time to modernize your infrastructure with VMware vCloud® Air™, the ready-to-run public cloud for protecting, extending, and replacing on-premises vSphere workloads. Read the eBook for tips and tricks, lessons learned from other organizations, and links to additional resources to help you get started.
This white paper will give you perspective on how cloud computing is addressing today’s most pressing IT and business challenges. Public cloud with hybrid cloud capabilities has become the preferred cloud model and it’s important to know the types of hybrid cloud capabilities enterprises should evaluate when considering cloud computing. Through three real-world case studies you’ll also see how VMware vCloud Air specifically delivers on the promise of public cloud with hybrid cloud capabilities.
Cloud computing adoption continues to expand as the overall benefits of cloud (cost efficiency, self-service, and IT standardization) are becoming more broadly recognized. While private cloud is the primary type of cloud infrastructure that is in use today, organizations are finding that cloud can no longer be a standalone IT sourcing and consumption model. Enterprises demand greater flexibility and scalability, leading them to invest in hybrid cloud models, which supply them with a seamless application, data, and management environment across all of their IT resources. IDC expects that the percentage of users who adopt private or public cloud models will diminish over the next several years, as enterprises increasingly choose to implement a hybrid cloud model.
Straight from our experts at VMware®, follow these technical tips to learn what you need to know to get started with VMware vCloud® Air™. From choosing the right service offering to migrating your workloads and administering resources, reference these tips as you extend your data center to the cloud.
Learn why VMware vSphere® users across multiple industries turned to VMware vCloud® Air™, the ready-to-run public cloud built on vSphere, to modernize their data centers.
While each organization’s story may be unique, VMware vSphere customers can quickly realize the cost-effectiveness and operational efficiencies that the public cloud delivers—without compromising the investments they’ve made in their on-premises data centers.
Higher education is in the midst of fundamental changes that are reshaping the future of both the mission and the business. As technology helps campuses better reach beyond their traditional physical borders, decision-makers expect IT to offer the solutions and leadership needed to deliver better services to students, staff, and researchers while simplifying IT costs and responsibilities. This solution brief addresses how vCloud Air built on the popular vSphere virtualization platform, is helping higher education IT respond to today’s performance, manageability, and security challenges.
As organizations begin to adopt public cloud, one element of consideration is what to do with existing applications. These applications were not built with cloud in mind, though most are virtualized today. These organizations must now determine a modernization strategy for these applications and incorporate how public cloud might fit into the picture. This paper examines the use of public cloud for data center extension and replacement, particularly in light of existing traditional enterprise applications. It also looks at the role of VMware's vCloud Air public cloud service in meeting the needs of these applications.
Virtualization tools are providing storage pros with the ability to overcome the limitations of physical servers and gain more flexibility. While hypervisors are allowing them to leap over these boundaries, they’re simultaneously crumbling traditional data protection walls. It’s time to rethink how we handle backup. Inside, discover 8 essential real-world practices to put in place for hypervisor backup, archiving, and disaster recovery.
This white paper describes how Fluid Data storage reduces the capacity required to support VMware, maximizes system performance and efficiency, accelerates storage provisioning, simplifies resource management and streamlines disaster recovery.
In this brief, you'll learn how CA Recovery Management Products, like CA ARCserve Backup and CA XOsoft solutions, can be applied with VMware Infrastructure to help you effectively respond to the challenges and opportunities of business-critical computing.
This flash provides an overview of how CA ARCserve® Backup r12 provides several new disaster recovery enhancements, including an easy-to-use Disaster Recovery wizard. Together with the replication and application failover functionality in CA XOsoft™ Replication and CA XOsoft™ High Availability, and the integrity testing features in CA XOsoft™ Assured Recovery, these tools enable you to recover servers, applications, and data swiftly and effectively.
The primary goal of this guide is not simply to provide a checklist of tasks, but to help you develop an understanding of the disaster recovery (DR) planning process and the principles that underlie it. Before getting into the details, let’s consider first just what this guide will do for you and equally importantly, what it will not do. What this guide will do is to lay out a framework for DR planning that keeps things conceptually simple and helps you know what steps must be carried out and why, without a lot of jargon or unnecessary formality.
Mid-sized businesses have long struggled to protect their IT systems. Many firms are inadequately protected and mistakenly think that a disaster is rare and won’t happen to them anytime soon. This custom Yankee Group Report uses customer interviews, statistical data and Yankee Group SMB survey results to examine disaster recovery (DR) issues.
VMware® Horizon Mirage™ is a layered image management solution that separates a PC into logical layers that either IT or the user own and manage. IT-owned layers are typically OS and corporate applications while user-owned layers consist of their own files and applications. The Horizon Mirage solution enables:
• Updates to individual IT-managed layers, such as core operating system files and
common business applications, without disrupting other layers, all while maintaining
user data and installed applications.
• Simpler backup by taking snapshots of layered images, enabling desktop disaster
recovery and helping to ensure continued end-user productivity.

Another must have feature of any modern Availability solution is self-service restore. Self-service restore is essentially a delegation, or granting the task of restoring files within the guest OS to users that have administrative rights. In many organizations, there are users who are responsible for the applications running within the VMs. These application owners are the primary administrators for the files and folders within the VM — so why would they have to go to a backup administrator to simply restore a file? Self-service restore allows these applications owners to log into a portal, search through the content of the backups for their VMs only and perform any necessary restores of those files back to their original or new locations.

Virtualization platforms are different from physical platforms. The virtualization benefits extend to management and support for tightly integrated backup and recovery solutions. Solutions designed exclusively for virtual infrastructure backup provide a host of key benefits and should be leveraged whenever possible.
