Optimizing Virtualization for the Hybrid Cloud – Datamation

Posted on Aug 22, 2014 in Hybrid Cloud

Since its inception, the promise of virtualization has been that it would make everything in the Data Center easier and less expensive.   Very few people would argue that broad point, but at the same time, there are still some areas that have not seen those benefits.  One of these is data replication.  Data replication solutions originally designed for the physical world can, of course, replicate data from one physical site to another.  Virtualization hasn’t broken them.  But it has added complexities and subtleties that legacy replication products simply cannot address. Even as virtualization’s widespread adoption continues to grow (more than 65% of all workloads are virtualized today, and growth is expected to continue for several more years), IT is finding that it’s just not enough.  Virtualization within the local data center --  Private Cloud -- has been a great source of cost savings, but there is a need to expand beyond that, and store and access data and workloads at remote locations (the Public Cloud).  This combination of Private and Public Clouds is called the Hybrid Cloud.  To achieve a true Hybrid Cloud, users need to be able to easily and quickly replicate their data and workloads between hypervisors within their Private Cloud, and to be able to move them to Public Cloud providers and back again, with similar speed and ease, while managing the whole thing from a single interface.
