The days of backing up your virtual environment using local backup tools, packing tapes to remote locations hoping your last DR test will match reality is a thing of the past. Today, cloud computing vendors provide superior cloud services including cloud data replication tools from Veeam™ and VMware™. Entrust your data storage needs to the best cloud services and experience a more practical approach to your backup and disaster recovery (DR) strategy.
Bit Refinery offers four options for handling your cloud data replication needs:
1. Zerto™ Real-Time Replication
2. VMware™ SRM Replication (Site Recovery Manager)
3. Veeam™ Replication
4. Cloud Storage
Zerto™ Virtual Replication 2.0 is the latest version of Zerto’s innovative hypervisor-based replication product, built to enable Cloud Service Providers to offer BC/ DR in cloud environments as well as virtualized environments. By moving replication from the storage level to the hypervisor, Zerto eliminates the constraints of storage-based technologies, achieving the flexibility and scalability your customers expect from the cloud, whether it is public, private or hybrid.

With the release of VMware™ vSphere 5 comes vSphere Replication which allows full SRM replication at the Virtual Machine layer removing the requirement that both “sides” must have matching high end storage devices. With this new replication, the hard work is handled by vSphere so you can pick and choose which VMs are replicated to the cloud.
Using Veeam’s award winning Backup & Replication product, Bit Refinery acts as a “Target” for your backups using replication or straight backups. Using VEEAM Replication allows a much shorter recovery time with backups resulting in a longer recovery time.
If you need basic cloud storage, Bit Refinery has you covered here. Our cloud storage is easily accessible using industry standards protocols such as SFTP and iSCSI. Located in one of our SAS 70 Type II & SSAE 16/SOC 1 data centers, your data is safe and stored in a fully redundant environment.
Cloud Replication is a new technology offering competitive pricing and technological advantages that are quickly making Cloud Replication the norm, not the exception. Let Bit Refinery help guide you through this new technology while providing you with a hands-free disaster recovery/backup solution.
