SolidFire Launches SSA Native Integration With VMware vCenter Site Recovery Manager

New Integration With VMware Site Recovery Manager Offers the Ability to Orchestrate Disaster Recovery and Plan Smooth Migrations for Site Maintenance

BOULDER, CO--(Marketwired - October 16, 2014) - SolidFire, ranked the storage industry's #1 Solid-State Array, today announced integration with VMware's Site Recovery Manager (SRM) and the general availability of SolidFire's Storage Replication Adapter (SRA). With this announcement, SolidFire offers VMware customers full integration to perform site-to-site failover, failback, migration and testing. The SRA exposes and highlights SolidFire's unique ability to replicate from one or two storage clusters at the protected site to one or two storage clusters at the recovery site -- all in the same protection group.

SolidFire SRA defines the interface between VMware SRM and the replicated storage arrays. It provides an interface for SRM to communicate with the storage arrays and execute supported workflows. Administrators can easily manage and configure replication of virtual machines hosted on SolidFire storage clusters. SolidFire SRA provides a user-friendly interface to facilitate migration of storage arrays for planned and disaster recovery between the protected and recovery sites.

SolidFire's SRA allows organizations to:

  • Provision and manage storage and replication policies at the virtual machine level
  • Set-up centralized recovery plans in minutes
  • Enable individual tenants to provision disaster protection through pre-defined policies
  • Perform fully automated orchestration of site failover, planned migrations and failback with a single click
  • Perform automated testing of recovery plans in an isolated network to avoid impacting production applications
  • Test recovery plan as frequently as needed without disruption to ensure predictability of recovery time objectives (RTO) and to simplify regulatory compliance

Site Recovery Manager is an extension to VMware vCenter Server that delivers a disaster recovery solution that provides automated orchestration and non-disruptive testing of centralized recovery plans for all virtualized applications. Site Recovery Manager can discover and manage replicated datastores and automate migration of inventory between vCenter Server instances.

Explore the SolidFire SRA and see how it, coupled with SolidFire's unmatched scale-out all-flash array performance, can protect your business. Get started today.
