WEBINAR: How To Get The Most Out Of Your Branch Virtualization Initiatives

March 5, 2012 in Webinar

 

Description

Webinar covers how virtualization solves 3 key common challenges faced in multi-site environments:

  • Limited IT resources;
  • The need for reduced IT complexity; and
  • The demand for high availability

As part of our discussion, we highlight Storage Virtual Appliances (SVAs) and give you the tools to:

  • Achieve high availability without purchasing a SAN / NAS
  • Leverage your VMware vSphere
  • Manage your branch offices from a centralized hub

Q: With Cloud moving quickly in the market do you see more customers utilizing that instead of local storage.?

A: MTypically customers keep business critical application running locally and utilize the cloud to compliment that by acting as a back-up or for applications which are not business critical. For More information on how Cloud can work with Storage Virtual Appliances get in touch with Matt at D2NA.

Q: What kind of bandwidth do you recommend between the branch and the central office?

A: It is not really relevant, it is more important between the SVA’s for the mirroring for this we recommend a 1GB connection. For remote management bandwidth is not as much of an issue as long as you are able to create a reomte desktop session.
