Simplified Data Protection with Efficient Per-VM Asynchronous Replication
Per-VM replication is a simple yet powerful concept. Instead of replicating the entire LUN, which normally contains tens to hundreds of VMs, you only need to replicate the particular VM of interest. The efficiency achieved is substantial, including:
WAN bandwidth reduction of up to 95 percent with integrated deduplication and compression.
Recovery point objectives (RPO) of 1 minute, 15 minutes, or other desired levels that can be set at a per-VM basis.
“I’ve never seen per-VM replication functionality on any other storage I have used... Per-VM replication allows us to recover specific VM instances, so we can recover the environment more efficiently. Given the testing we have done so far, I expect it to help us reduce the time spent on the disaster recovery process by a factor of 10.”
Ross Alaspa, application server architect at AMD
In addition to one-to-one replication, you can replicate individual VMs across multiple sites to a remote DR location (many-to-one) or vice versa, from one source to up to four locations (one-to-many). This flexibility allows you to create multiple redundant copies for disaster recovery and data protection. And replication can be easily configured, monitored and managed from Tintri Global Center (TGC).
ReplicateVM asynchronous replication integrates with VMware Site Recovery Manager (SRM), bringing the simplicity and efficiency of per-VM replication to SRM, enabling administrators to:
Setup and execute recovery plans in minutes
Automate workflows such as site failover, planned migrations and failback
Perform DR testing in an isolated infrastructure without disrupting the production infrastructure
Mission Critical Applications DR Strategy Enabled by Synchronous Replication
With ReplicateVM™ software, synchronous replication can be set up in minutes by an IT generalist and offers zero-minute RPO (Zero RPO) with single-click failover. Other features include:
Recovery time objectives (RTO) of 30 seconds or less for planned and manual failovers
Zero data loss for inter-data center network distances up to 100 km
Bi-directional synchronous replication, where primary VMs and replica (secondary) VMs can be distributed on the same array, enabling flexible failover of individual applications without requiring failover of the entire array
Real-time analytics for synchronous replication at the array and VM levels, with end-to-end visualization of VM latency including the replication component
Does not require purchase and configuration of additional hardware such as FCIP converters or SAS switches, or specialized array models
Intelligence Enabling You to Do the Impossible
Mix asynchronous and synchronous replication policies for your applications on a single device. Protect your replicated data at rest transparently with optional SecureVM software. Develop advanced enterprise recovery workflows such as non-disruptive data center maintenance and data center migration with PowerShell or REST APIs and Tintri’s Automation Toolkit.
Conventionally, if you clone a base VM at the source, you have to replicate (the entire LUN) across WAN to create a clone VM at the destination. You also have to create storage efficient clones of your replicated VMs, including new snapshots created on the source, without replicating the entire VM. Now with Tintri, all you need to do is clone the base VM at the destination. It happens instantly, no LUN carving is needed and not a single bit is wasted over the wire.
“I did an entire DC migration using ReplicateVM. It is by far the fastest replication I have seen when compared to other storage vendors or products. Best part, absolutely no performance impact to our production environment!”
