Cloud-Native Disaster Recovery

High performance disaster recovery combined with cost-effective, limitlessly scalable object storage

Object Storage Goes "Beyond Backup" for DRaaS

JetStream DR provides a software foundation for real-time replication to a ready failover environment for immediate recovery and resumed operations. JetStream DR takes object storage “beyond backup” to provide cloud-native continuous data protection (CDP) leveraging the scalable, cost-effective object storage. During normal operation, the only resource needed in the recovery site is the object storage platform, so recovery resources can be provisioned on demand.  JetStream DR takes object storage beyond backup to support continuous data protection (CDP) for business continuity (BC) and disaster recovery (DR) services.

Cloud-Native Benefits

Cloud-native disaster recovery allows service providers to take advantage of the scalability, agility, and cost-efficiency of object storage with the performance of a true CDP software. Because of the nearly limitless capacity and economies of scale that object storage offers, service providers can deliver BCDR at scale and leverage any S3 compatible object store for:

Scalability

A highly extensible solution that can support even the most data-intensive customer environments.

Agility

Support all types of customer compute and storage infrastructure with any infrastructure in the cloud

Multitenancy

Securely leverage shared storage across multiple clients to maximize resource usage

Cost Efficiency

Rehydrate VMs from object storage and deploy them into your runtime infrastructure only when needed for recovery.

Changing the Economics of DRaaS

Reduce overall IT and storage costs 60 – 80 %

Maintain customers’ data more efficiently and cost-effectively during both normal operations and in the event of a disaster. 

Object Storage as DR Target: Replication is not to a live VMware environment but to a cost-efficient object storage

Dynamic Protection: Customer’s data center and its systems can be protected dynamically rather than maintaining a parallel system footprint on similar infrastructure in our facilities

“On-demand” Rehydration: Necessary disaster recovery systems are activated only in the event of a declared disaster

Service Provider ENS Reduces DR Infrastructure Costs 80%

“Compared to other DR/CDP solutions that we’ve deployed, the infrastructure costs of the JetStream-Cloudian DR service will be 60% to 80% less, which means we can deliver an enterprise-grade DR service to our customers that’s more economical for them to consume and more profitable for us. It really is a win-win.”

– Paul Smitham, President, Enterprise Networking Systems

Flexible Use Cases

JetStream DR delivers cloud disaster recovery software that addresses a broad range of deployment use cases, including both on-premises, hybrid cloud, and public cloud options. This enables the Service Provider to deliver a DR solution that matches the needs of individual customers, all with the same easy installation and operation.

  • DR as a Service
  • Remote Site Recovery
  • Cloud-to-Cloud DR

Disaster Recovery as a Service with Failover and Failback

Data written by the on-premises VMs is replicated into object storage, either in the service provider’s cloud, in the public cloud, or even in a secondary data center site operated by the customer. No compute infrastructure is needed until the disaster occurs, so costs and overhead are kept at a minimum. JetStream’s proprietary garbage collection algorithm ensures that the footprint of the object store does not grow excessively. When a disaster event occurs, the application and configuration data stored in the object store are “rehydrated” into an active VMware environment, allowing the customer to return the application to the same operating condition as in the on-premises data center.

Remote Site Recovery

Some customers may want to take advantage of low-cost object storage from the public cloud, but may want more control and services during a disaster. In this case, the service provider can offer a solution where application data is replicated into a public cloud object store, such as Azure Blob Storage or AWS S3. When a disaster event happens, the data and configuration can be rehydrated remotely to a VMware environment in a separate facility, in particular, the service provider’s cloud. Nothing is different from the customer perspective on how the software is installed or operated. With this configuration, though, it is very important that a higher bandwidth interconnection is in place between the object storage location and the recovery site, as that will directly impact the length of time it takes to restart (RTO, or Recovery Time Objective).

Cloud-to-Cloud Disaster Recovery

The Cloud-to-Cloud use case operates very similarly to the DRaaS case, but the service provider now installs JetStream DR in their own cloud to protect the applications that they are running for the customer. The recovery site can be a separate cloud data center with object storage operated by the provider, or it could even replicate to the public cloud and be recovered there.
