The difference between hours and minutes could mean millions of dollars. Data is moving back to core data centers
and the cloud—where prolonged recovery times are not acceptable.
We need to reduce
RTO and RPO
Extended outages put businesses at risk. Data infrastructure today requires 24x7x365 availability. These demands can be especially challenging in hybrid cloud, or multi-vendor environments where most solutions have limitations.
Data needs to be available in multiple locations
Today’s needs for disaster recovery, global file sharing, and load balancing all require Active-Active availability across multiple locations. Enabling automatic failover and improving end-user access are standard requirements.
Multi-site VDI requires
A single-site VDI deployment is at risk of downtime. To deploy a truly resilient VDI solution, data needs to be synchro-nized in two or more locations to accommodate failover and to provide travelling users with fast access.
Peer Global File Service
Peer Software delivers solutions to enable Active-Active availability for near-zero RPO disaster recovery, global file sharing, regional load balancing, and multi-site VDI deployments. Peer’s flagship product, Peer Global File Service, is a software-only solution that integrates with all major storage platforms and supports standard file formats to meet the demands of multi-site, multi-vendor, and multi-cloud infrastructure.
- Peer’s real-time replication synchronizes data as changes occur to provide near-zero RPO.
- Delta-level replication moves only the changed data of a file to efficiently utilize bandwidth, while improving flexibility associated with distance and latency.
- Support for DFS Namespace helps enable automatic failover to other active sites.
- Multi-site VDI deployments benefit from user data synchronization with integrated global file locking to prevent file version conflicts.
Active-Active File Services
Synchronize multiple data centers, or just two servers/clusters, to realize Active-Active high availability and minimize RTO and RPO. Users can be redirected to another site without disruption.
Traditional hardware solutions, like snapshots, are scheduled and remain passive (not accessible) at the second site. Snapshots are hardware-dependent and work at the volume level. PeerGFS offers greater flexibility by supporting all major storage platforms and can be configured at granular level (directory or share).
BENEFITS OF ACTIVE-ACTIVE FILE SERVICES
As the world’s largest provider of safety training for the offshore, maritime and renewables industries, RelyOnNutec Safety Services is a business built on decades of trust that is continuously innovating.
“We needed a replication service that we could adopt across our network, which required a vendor that has worked with larger organizations with sizable amounts of data.”
