Through Continuous Data Protection (CDP), Concero delivers industry-best recovery times for hosted and on-premise virtual machines. CDP replicates production data to a disaster recovery site as the VMware or HyperV server writes it to storage. This approach is much cheaper and simpler than cumbersome hardware-based, synchronous replication solutions and results in the least amount of data loss.
Moreover, Concero’s disaster recovery solution includes journal based protection. This feature allows you to set recovery points in increments of a few seconds up to two weeks in the past. This means that Concero doesn’t just protect against data center wide issues such as hardware failures, power issues or natural disasters, it also protects against logical failures such as database corruptions, viruses, faulty application upgrades and user errors.
Advanced Protection Groups
Concero’s disaster recovery solution uses Protection Groups (PGs). PGs allow virtual machines (VMs) that make up an application or service function to be logically grouped together. The VMs assigned to a PG are protected together, with write-order fidelity between the VMs in the PG. The write-order fidelity is critical because it allows all VMs within the PG to be recovered with perfect continuity up to 14 days in the past. PGs are also important because they provide granularity and reduces recovery times to the disaster recovery process. With PGs, you can quickly and easily select one, some, or all of your protected applications, each with their own single or multi-server dependencies, to be recovered in the cloud to the exact point in time you require.
