JetStream Software Inc., an innovator in cloud data protection, today shares news of JetStream DR, a next-generation software solution for enabling cloud service providers (CSPs) and managed service providers (MSPs) to deliver true cloud-based services to enterprise customers with:
- Continuous Data Protection: immediate data replication to a recovery service
- Business Continuity: virtual machine (VM) failover to a “warm cloud” environment
- Disaster Recovery: VM and data recovery from cloud object stores
JetStream DR provides a software foundation for real-time replication to a ready failover environment for immediate recovery and resumed operations. Unlike traditional backup offerings that rely on intermittent snapshots, JetStream DR replicates data at the moment it’s written to local storage, for near-zero recovery point objective (RPO) and near-zero recovery time objective (RTO).
Additionally, the near-synchronous data replication can be directed to an S3-compatible object store, providing a highly economical solution for continuous data protection, with full VM and data recovery through rehydration from an object store bucket.
JetStream DR delivers these powerful technical advantages:
- Continuous Data Capture for Near-Zero RPO
In contrast to snapshot-based backups, JetStream DR continuously captures and replicates data as it is written to local storage through VMware IO Filters. The result is near-zero RPO and minimal impact on application performance.
- Hardware and Storage System Agnostic
JetStream DR runs within VMware vSphere to protect VMs on any type of infrastructure: SAN, NAS, vSAN, HCI, etc. The recovery environment can be any VMware-compatible infrastructure, regardless of customers’ architectures.
- High Throughput, Fault Tolerant Connectivity
JetStream DR is designed specifically for data center-to-data center DR services. The crash-consistent data pipe is optimized for high throughput, fault-tolerant data replication across network connections of varying quality, with seamless failover.
- Leveraging Object Storage for Economies of Scale
JetStream DR takes cloud data protection “beyond backup” by delivering real-time data replication into any S3-compatible object store, including AWS S3, as well as solutions from vendors including Cloudian, MinIO and others.
- Policy-Based Administration
JetStream DR supports multiple, concurrent availability policies, assigned per VM recovery group, for cost-efficient SLA management, minimizing manual effort and risk of human error.
