WHAT IS IT?
The solution creates automatic real-time replication from branch office servers to a datacentre or the cloud. By doing so it ensures the lowest window of potential data loss.
Legacy backup infrastructure and manual processes at each branch office location which rely on manual intervention are thus eliminated.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
PeerSync is real-time, byte level replication, that is job-based and can be configured with multiple jobs per server to operate in the following modes
|At startup||On demand|
|Interval||From the command line|
PeerSync works well in both LAN or WAN environments, where low bandwidth and high network latency may exist across the distributed organization.
IS THE SOLUTION RIGHT FOR ME?
This solution can be used to backup data to a central server which can be physical, virtual or cloud based. It can also be used to migrate data from one location to another, this is especially useful when you are moving into the cloud. Finally it can be used for home directory synchronisation – this enables you to synchronise user home directories across two or more data centres, ensuring that user data is immediately protected in the event of any single site failure.
WHY USE THIS SOLUTION?
This solution is flexible, it integrates with existing on-premise storage infrastructure so you do not need to change what you already have.
Real-time replication and DFS namespace integration offer the lowest possible recovery point objective (RPO) and recovery time objective (RTO).
Finally this is a very cost effective solution as it replaces costly legacy backup systems with real-time replication to a secondary site.
