JetStream DR

Protect VMs with a near-zero RPO and RTO cloud service

The Key to Your Business Continuity Service

JetStream DR is purpose-built to enable Service Providers to deliver DR and BC capabilities to customers’ on-premises environments. Unlike cloud backup solutions, JetStream DR provides Continuous Data Capture for near-synchronous data replication, and near-zero RPOs and RTOs.

 

Your customers run JetStream DR host components in their on-premises data centers, enabling them to securely replicate their protected VMs’ data to the recovery environment you maintain for them in your data center. Compute resources may be thin-provisioned and allocated for failover on demand.

Benefits

Near-Zero RPO

Replicate VMs and data to your recovery service in real time, without snapshots, for near-zero RPO.

Lightning Fast RTO

Recover and run VMs and data on your recovery service with RTO measured in minutes.

Replication to Object Store

Save money by replicating to a cost-efficient S3 object store, with VM rehydration and recovery only when needed.

Key Features Overview

VM-Level Protection

JetStream DR is designed for administrators to easily select VMs for protection, and to designate the level of data protection required and VM failover requirements. All standard vSphere cluster functions (vMotion, etc.) are supported in your customer’s environment.

Easy Administration

In your customer’s environment, host filter components are installed from a signed VIB. Protection parameters are administered through a vCenter plug-in and the vSphere Web GUI. Once the solution is configured, administrators can initiate VM protection by simply changing its SPBM storage policy to “protected.”

Agentless

Rather than requiring agent software inside protected VMs, JetStream DR captures data through IO Filters within VMware vSphere, ensuring compatibility and security for all VMs. The IO filters are deployed, maintained and managed by vSphere, vCenter and vSphere SPBM.

Hardware Independent

JetStream DR is employs an all-software, hypervisor-level replication technology that can protect VMs running in any type of on-premises infrastructure – SAN, NAS, vSAN, HCI, etc. Your recovery environment can run on any VMware-compatible infrastructure, regardless of your customers’ on-premises architectures.

VMware Supported

JetStream DR is integrated with vSphere exclusively through standard vSphere APIs, ensuring full VMware compatibility and support for your customer’s on-premises VMware environment. Unlike other cloud DR solutions, the replication software deployed in your customer’s data center is certified VMware Ready and listed in the VMware Compatibility Guide.

Cloud Service Optimized

JetStream DR is designed specifically for datacenter-to-datacenter DR services. The crash-consistent data pipe linking your customer’s premises to yours is optimized for high throughput, fault-tolerant data replication across network connections of varying quality, and seamless VM failover from your customer’s data center to your recovery site.

Flash Optimized Data Replication

To maximize application performance at your customer’s environment, the replication log is designed for writing to a flash appliance or other existing flash resource. Similarly, to optimize replication latency, JetStream DR supports flash-based caching of replicated data in your environment, combining flash performance with cost-effective HDD storage for protected data.

Object Store Support

In addition to a warm failover to your VMware environment, JetStream DR also supports real-time data replication into any S3-compatible object store, including AWS S3, as well as commercial object store solutions from vendors including Cloudian, Minio, Western Digital, and others. The same IO Filter software replicates data from the customer’s premises, providing near-zero RPO even when recovering VMs from an object store.

High Performance

JetStream DR captures data continuously as it’s written to storage locally. It doesn’t require snapshots or CBT, so in addition to providing near-zero RPO and RTO, your customer’s on-premises application performance remains high, even as data is captured and replicatedto your recovery service.

vSphere IO Filters are deployed to each VMware host for continuous data protection of each virtual machine and its data in the protected recovery group. JetStream DR precisely leverages the vSphere APIs for IO Filtering (VAIO) framework to deliver the highest level of application performance while protecting your resources.

IO Filter

JetStream DR’s unique management Policy Engine defines data replication and instance recovery policies for recovery groups. This makes it incredibly fast and easy to apply protection when and where needed.

Data Availability Policy Engine

JetStream DR uses a Low Latency Replication Log deployed on a highly-available, non-volatile memory appliance to ensure the Cloud destination remains a nearly real-time replica of the source without any impact to applications being run on the source.

Low-Latency Replication Log

JetStream DR features an innovative Cloud Storage Adapter to pre-process data for delivery to specific cloud destinations, including vSphere, Object Store and NFS.

Cloud Storage Adapter

JetStream DR’s Crash-Consistent Data Pipe is a high-throughput, multi-channel software connection that delivers crash-consistent transfer of data from the on-premises data center to the cloud destination, ensuring continuous data coherence.

Crash-Consistent Data Pipe

JetStream DR allows an optional extreme low-latency data tier to be implemented in the cloud to enable both zero-RPO with data consistency and efficient use of cloud resources.
