VMware Cloud Director Availability product overview

What is VMware Cloud Director Availability?

VMware Cloud Director Availability is a business continuity and Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS) solution that allows users to migrate, protect, fail over, and reverse failover of vApps and virtual machines between multi-tenant clouds and on-premises via asynchronous replications.

Key benefits of using VMware Cloud Director Availability


VCDA offers a full tiered solution now extends to protect Mission Critical workloads and offer more granular recovery. 1-minute RPO can be enabled using replication and SLA policies. This feature is a premium offering that can be priced accordingly and should be tested before enabling.

Enjoy unified management built on familiar tools with a modern HTML-5 interface, native integration with VMware Cloud Director, rapid appliance deployment models, and a single role-based access control (RBAC) portal to tenants and service providers. Intuitive native in-context Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) with simple tiered options for different workload criticality drives increased consumption and stability. Understanding service capacity requirements and integrating operational awareness for the entire solution means cloud providers can confidently deploy and manage large volumes of customers without additional operational costs.

VCDA users have extra security for the workloads as instances can be stored over different schedules.The Advanced Retention Policy offer up to 5 retention rules aligned to differing schedules or protection retention. Cloud Service Providers can pass the control into their tenants’ hands to specify the exact retention settings when configuring a new protection but still apply
limitations through the Replication policies.

With VCDA users have the ability to group and sequence VMs and vApps according to their recovery start-up timings and priority. The DR and Migration Plans allow the provider and tenants to manage the sequence of VMs failing over, set waiting times, even include prompt for
confirming the next the execution steps. Newly added capability to schedule initial full sync speeds the overall
migration process.

Part of the VMware Cloud Provider Platform, VMware Cloud Director Availability has been designed to dramatically simplify cloud onboarding, enables cost effective availability and recovery, and secure operations to cloud providers and their end customers. The solution integrates in-context with VMware Cloud Director to offer DRaaS, self-service on-boarding and migration to VMware Cloud Director-based clouds.

Not all workloads are equal, and whilst customers need to align cost to criticality, service provides must personalize services to their customers without incurring operational cost nor stability issues. DRaaS SLA Profiles brings simple tiering of services to customers with personalization provided by their cloud provider allowing a provider to increase their service margins with the correct tiering, including RPOs from 1 minute and advanced retention policies for customer workloads.

Coste effective, time saving and best for Virtualization and flexible for cloud applications. It's really reliable and scalable cloud solution for all type of applications.

Rich and outrageous Disaster recovery product for multiple environments.
The only downside about VMware Cloud Director Availability is the large storage space it consumes. It requires a lot of RAM space in order to function adequately.
They avoid lip service and focus on the issue.
