  • Can You Really Support Business Continuity Requirements?
    Intelligent N+X Redundancy, Placement Affinities, & Future Proofing in the Virtualized Data Center Virtualization brought about the ability to simplify business continuity management in IT.

However, Enterprises and Service Providers face new challenges ensuring they have enough compute capacity in their virtualized data centers to support their business continuity requirements, while at the same time not over provisioning infrastructure capacity resulting in unnecessary capital expenditure. Read this white paper for these three takeaways: How to maintain N+X redundancy capacity requirements while not over-reserving The challenges introduced by affinity rules, and how to manage them How VMTurbo simulates "What-If" hypotheticals to plan for future scenarios – including full site failure – so that you can make the necessary capacity decisions to avoid them today
