Using virtual servers for your disaster recovery strategy

Techtarget identified some key considerations for disaster recovery in a virtualized environment.

Because of its ease of deployment and integration, server virtualization can be a highly effective tool for disaster recovery. Server virtualization addresses three concerns related to disaster recovery:

  • Procurement delays: Virtualization eliminates most hardware dependencies.
  • Rapid recovery: Virtualized server images can be rapidly deployed and in some cases, moved across physical systems.

When considering server virtualization in a disaster recovery strategy, storage administrators must take into account their data protection, recovery granularity and restore objectives.
