Datrium Extends Platform to Support Edge Environments

Datrium, providers of cloud-native disaster recovery with ransomware protection, is extending its Datrium DRaaS with VMware Cloud on AWS solution to support Edge environments.

Datrium DRaaS for Edge is a new, easy to use, cost-effective SaaS solution for data protection and disaster recovery (DR) for VMware workloads in Edge environments and remote office/branch office (ROBO) implementations.

With Datrium DRaaS for Edge, in the event of a ransomware attack or other disaster, enterprises can quickly recover locally or failover on demand to Datrium DRaaS with VMware Cloud on AWS with instant Recovery Time Objectives (RTO).

Datrium also announced the general availability of Datrium DRaaS Connect for VMware workloads running on HCI, SAN and NAS systems.

A modern approach to DR, Datrium DRaaS with VMware Cloud on AWS provides VMware users, both on premises and in the cloud, with access to reliable, cost-effective, cloud-based DR with instant RTO.

Like DRaaS Connect, DRaaS for Edge is downloadable to third party on-premises systems and can be managed from a central location, simplifying the management of remote sites and making it ideal for ROBO deployments.

Meeting the growing global demand for affordable and fast DR, Datrium DRaaS with VMware Cloud on AWS is a cloud-native DRaaS (disaster recovery as a service) solution offering pay-per-use cloud economics, built-in backup, instant RTO and instant compliance checks to enable DR plan efficiency when a disaster strikes.

“Business resiliency is predicated on combining rapid access to mission-critical cloud resources with rock-solid disaster recovery and IT security technology,” said Mark Lohmeyer, senior vice president and general manager, Cloud Platform Business Unit at VMware. “By leveraging Datrium DRaaS with VMware Cloud on AWS, enterprises have a great option to effectively mitigate risk and better secure their organizations to help prevent major business disruptions.”

Built on ControlShift, Datrium’s workload orchestrator, Datrium DRaaS provides fully automated failover to VMware Cloud on AWS based on live mounts of VM snapshots held in AWS S3.

Datrium offers DRaaS Connect for two different vSphere deployments: DRaaS Connect for VMware vSphere On Prem and DRaaS Connect for VMware Cloud on AWS. DRaaS Connect for VMware vSphere On Prem extends Datrium DRaaS to any VMware vSphere on-premises infrastructure and provides efficient replication of VMware vSphere snapshots into DRaaS deduplicated, compressed, encrypted snapshot storage on Amazon S3. It is managed by a DRaaS cloud-based control plane to define VM protection groups and their frequency, replication and retention policies. On failback, DRaaS will return only changed blocks back to VMware vSphere and the local on-premises infrastructure through DRaaS Connect.
