Get the right mix of resiliency tools

We can help you protect your business-critical apps and data. Take a look at our broad portfolio of resiliency solutions to find one that fits your budget and recovery goals. You can also view a reference architecture to learn more.

Rackspace Replication Manager

Traditional resiliency solutions often require you to manually recover your data, making for an unreliable, time-consuming, and complex recovery process. The Rackspace Replication Manager service utilizes VMware® vCenter™ Site Recovery Manager™ (SRM) and works in concert with Rackspace Array-based Replication to deliver fast, reliable recovery thanks to automated processes and non-disruptive testing. The combination of SRM and Array-based Replication helps you protect your critical data. It also allows you to group VMs based on dependencies and prioritize their recovery in order to meet your RPO and RTO targets.

  • Reduce the potential for human error — Replication Manager replaces many manual runbooks common in traditional recovery plans. This minimizes errors, out-of-sync configurations, and cumbersome manual processes.
  • VMware Certified Professionals — Get access to a VCP-staffed team that's experienced in architecting complex resiliency solutions using SRM and that's available to assist with testing and failover/failback.
  • Test failover without putting your source site at risk — Replication Manager offers a non-disruptive failover test based on a snapshot of your target site.

VM Replication

Our VM Replication solution allows you to easily replicate selected VMs across Rackspace data centers. It’s a cost-effective resiliency tool that provides geographic redundancy and helps you protect and recover VMs when disaster strikes.

Database Replication

Databases are often the most important aspect of any hosted configuration because they hold all of your important data: product information, customer information, ecommerce transaction data, web content, and more. The busier your business, the more often your database gets updated. And the more often you need to copy that data to a second location. You can accomplish this by using:

  • Transactional replication
  • Log shipping
  • Mirroring

Array-based Replication

Like database content, your files are vital. Images, audio, video, and documents need to be protected. Hard drives fail, making RAID protection a fundamental requirement of any storage solution. But if the chassis fails, or the facility is damaged, your files could still be lost. Rackspace can help design storage systems for you using products from respected vendors like EMC® or NetApp®. Then, we can help to configure the replication tools these vendors provide.

DNS Failover

Domain Name System (DNS) helps your customers find your site by directing requests for your domain to your IP address. And if DNS fails, nobody will ever reach your website—so it won't matter whether it’s up and running or not. Most providers already have redundant DNS systems in place within their data centers. If you have a second location serving as a backup site, the ability to manually or automatically fail over these requests will keep your customers flowing to your online business.
