In this, the eighth article in our series investigating the benefits of Vembu BDR for Virtualized Environments, we carry on examining Vembu’s migration capabilities. We all know that backing up your data is only one part of the equation. The ability to recover is the other, and arguably more important, side. This is where Vembu BDR really shines.

Again life is being kind to you, and once again you are sitting in your cube, monitoring your environment. OK, you know the score by now — playing Gorf! Well your wrong you’ve stated re-playing Donkey Kong after watching the movie Pixels at Steve’s Daughters birthday party. This is more fun as both you and Steve can now have a real points tally competition.  All is calm in the world and you are planning the next phases of the company cloud migration.

In the industry, OpenStack is seen as very hard to implement. Considering this, I began to think that most people who deploy OpenStack try to bite off too a large chunk of OpenStack at one go, to implement it all instead of just what they need. OpenStack is a cloud management platform, not the hypervisor, so perhaps we can take some lessons from how we installed VMware products when we just started out. We still implement things using the same patterns for vSphere. We should revisit OpenStack with this history in mind.

VMware, Microsoft, Citrix, and Red Hat Cost Comparison

In part one of Cost to Build a New Virtualized Data Center, we discussed the basic software costs for a virtualized data center based on VMware vSphere 6.0, Citrix XenServer 6.5, Microsoft Hyper-V 2012 R2 and 2016, and Red Hat. If you missed that, please click here to review before continuing.

This post will take that original premise and expand it to include storage with a view to moving the entire environment toward a software-defined data center.
