Simple and reliable disaster recovery for all your applications


Many organizations today do not have adequate disaster recovery (DR) protection for their applications. In most cases, disaster recovery is perceived as too expensive, complex and unreliable for any but the most mission-critical applications. Disaster recovery is a form of insurance to protect your IT assets when a disaster strikes. Just like good insurance, the best disaster recovery should provide great protection, with minimum hassle, at the lowest possible cost.

XcellHost provides you with better flexibility to protect your business critical information, whether you choose to build your own solution or subscribe to disaster recovery services.

Cloud-Based Disaster Recovery

Disaster Recovery is a recovery-as-a-service offering that introduces native cloud-based disaster recovery capabilities for XcellHost virtual environments. Built on XcellHost's hypervisor-based replication engine, XcellHost Replication, and integrated with vCloud Hybrid Service, Disaster Recovery offers a cost-effective, simple, automated process for replication and recovering applications and data in a standby environment. Key features of the service include:

  • Self-service disaster recovery protection for virtual machines
  • Recovery point objectives (RPO) from 15 minutes to 24 hours
  • Recovery time objectives (RTO) of 4 hours or less
  • Automated failover testing, planned migrations, and recovery
  • Flexible failover testing

Build a Foundation for Your Disaster Recovery

  • Hybrid-cloud ready
    XcellHost comes with pre-built integration to disaster recovery services on vCloud Hybrid Service. Remove the worry of cloud-based DR compatibility. Leverage XcellHost cloud-based services to extend or augment your DR plans.
  • Consolidation
    Hardware infrastructure can be consolidated at both the production and failover sites to reduce costs.
  • Hardware independence
    Virtual machines are completely independent from their underlying hardware. Organizations can use different, older or less expensive hardware at the failover site to reduce costs.
  • Encapsulation
    With XcellHost, the entire system—including operating system, applications and data—is encapsulated as a set of virtual machine files. By replicating those files to the failover site, the entire system can be recovered in a fast single-step process, accelerating typical recovery times from an average of 40 hours down to an hour or less.

Simplify Disaster Recovery Management

  • Centralized recovery plans
    With Site Recovery Manager, setting up a centralized and automated recovery plan is simple and can be done in a matter of minutes through an interface that is tightly integrated with XcellHost Server.
  • Automated failover and site migrations
    Site Recovery Manager automates the entire site recovery and migration process. Upon initiating a disaster failover, business services are automatically recovered with limited or no manual intervention.
  • Non-disruptive testing
    With Site Recovery Manager, failover testing can be performed as frequently as required and is non-disruptive to production systems. Organizations are able to quickly identify any problems with recovery plans to enable fast resolution.
