Can Disaster Recovery be this simple? … !

draas

 

I remember my conversation with a customer, how often you do a disaster recovery drill test I asked.. Maybe once a year. What was the last time you did?.. Don’t remember.. I feel I embarrassed him.

But now the same customer calls me in the middle of the week.. I am failing over all vm’s to another site.. Why, I ask? … Hmm, just for fun..

Seems like a dream for some, but believe me its reality. That’s what’s unique about Nutanix Data Protection. I had been using Nutanix Data Protection for different customers, different scenarios and agreed it was lagging some automation or run book, but since the release of DR Run Book of Prism Central that had been addressed and no matter what, it cannot be more simplified than that.

But can that be extended to DRaaS or to cloud providers and the answer is why not? Now with the Nutanix Xi Leap you can have your DRaaS with the same simplicity.

So what is Nutanix Xi Leap you say.. Xi Leap is cloud based disaster recovery service built in Nutanix AOS based clusters within the same Prism Management (Nutanix Xi Leap).

But how can I see what you are saying is true..  Yes Nutanix recently introduce Test Drive 2 and now you can see by yourself what all the fuss is about.. Just sign up at the Nutanix Test Drive for DRaaS and see yourself.
