Resilience and Advanced Data Protection

 

Virtualized Infrastructure Enables Assured Availability

Protecting your data is the most critical element of our business. Resilience in our data centers is the key.

Global Data Vault’s systems infrastructure is built using both VMWare’s Virtual Infrastructure and Microsoft’s Hyper-V hypervisor.

Problems like storage failure, server failure, and ordinary errors cause data loss far too often. Backup and recovery of your systems and data needs to be fast, flexible, and easy without taking critical resources away from your systems.

GDV uses VMware Infrastructure and Microsoft Hyper-V to build fault tolerance capabilities into our infrastructure ensuring advanced data protection resilience.

Key fault-tolerance capabilities built into VMware Infrastructure include:

  • Network interface teaming to provide tolerance of individual network card failures
  • Storage multi-pathing to tolerate storage path failures
