Data center resources are continually making the leap from the real world to the virtual, but the fact remains that virtual environments are just as prone to disruption as physical ones. So it's no surprise that we're starting to see disaster recovery solutions tailor-made for the main virtual platforms of the day.
One of the latest is SteelEye Technology's SteelEye Protection Suite, optimized for the Citrix ZenServer. The system provides for real-time LAN/WAN replication of XenServer virtual machines, allowing them to be moved within a storage pool to maintain availability of mission-critical applications and data.
As a host-based storage repository replication solution, the system provides replication engine with continuous data protection, change-only replication and integrated compression.
SteelEye is also a member of the Citrix Ready program that maintains solution compatibility with Citrix platforms and products.
