Virtualisation is starting to make an impact in the disaster recovery space. Every disaster recovery project undertaken by mid-market service provider Brennan in the past six months has been predominantly based on virtualisation, says managing director David Stevens.
“Our entry-level solution is that we replace physical servers with virtual servers in one of our data centres. Combined with that is either live data replication or very close to live,” Stevens says. “For a minimal monthly outlay they get access to a whole bunch of virtual servers, and then the pricing changes if they need to enact the disaster recovery plan.
