HotLink Announces Addition of HotLink CIMple(TM) Software-Defined Networking to HotLink DR Express(TM) technology
Feb 25 14
HotLink(R) Corporation announced the addition of HotLink CIMple(TM) software-defined networking (SDN) to its HotLink DR Express(TM) technology. CIMple SDN enables easier testing, greater automation and faster operational recovery in Amazon Web Services (AWS) following a failure in on-premise VMware data centers. Additionally, the new HotLink DR Express features enhanced backup retention and scheduling policies, as well as support for VMware vCenter and vSphere 5.5. The HotLink DR Express is the only solution to enable low-cost, comprehensive VMware data protection by leveraging AWS for backup, replication, disaster recovery (DR) and business continuity (BC), using VMware vCenter as the single point of administration and management. Within minutes of a failure, VMware virtual machines (VMs) can be transformed and fully operational in Amazon EC2, with AWS workloads managed side-by-side with on-premise vSphere VMs inside VMware vCenter. The new release extends VMware vCenter capabilities to include hybrid SDN, so on- and off-premise networking can be seamlessly and holistically managed and pre-configured with VMware vCenter as the integration hub. By automatically discovering, transforming and mirroring on-premise network configurations in AWS, the new HotLink DR Express removes the complexity and labor-intensive nature of managing hybrid DR networking, maintains networking consistency across application tiers in a recovery, and enables easy DR testing without disturbing production operations. The most important benefit is that with pre-configured, automated network provisioning in AWS, VMware workloads can be accurately and automatically restored in Amazon EC2 in minutes, so operations are minimally disrupted following an on-premise failure. Features of the new HotLink DR Express include: HotLink CIMple SDN: Hybrid networks spanning VMware and AWS are intuitively administered and managed in VMware vCenter. Auto-discovery, AWS transformation, granular per-VM configurations and pre-configuration of test and production DR networks enable easy setup and testing -- with recovery in minutes in Amazon EC2. Enhanced retention policies: HotLink DR Express offers configurable consolidation options for restore points, which enables faster recovery in a failure scenario, reduced storage requirements in AWS and assistance with compliance efforts regarding discovery policies. Improved backup scheduling: Enhanced VM protection scheduling allows for off-cycle or non-recurring VM backups to accommodate events such as planned upgrades, security breaches or other periodic activity. Support of VMware vCenter and vSphere 5.5: As companies evaluate and migrate from prior VMware versions, HotLink DR Express now readily supports the new VMware environments.
HotLink Launches VMware Disaster Recovery to Amazon with the New HotLink DR Express
Aug 19 13
HotLink announced its latest product, HotLink DR Express™, the solution that leverages Amazon Web Services (AWS) to economically protect all types of VMware vSphere virtual machines, and not just mission-critical ones. HotLink DR Express provides a dramatically simple plug-in solution for VMware vCenter users to integrate robust data protection with day-to-day operational management of VMware Windows and Linux workloads. Within minutes of a failure, IT administrators can automatically recover to a DR/BC site within AWS for the cost of basic backup. HotLink DR Express addresses the market need for a cost-effective business recovery solution for workloads that could never sustain the exorbitant cost of a replica DR site, a luxury only justified for a handful of critical applications. Until now, basic backup and/or replication have been the only affordable options, but those recovery processes require standby, available hardware and a time-intensive effort to restore the VMs. With HotLink DR Express, there is no need to purchase dedicated recovery hardware since resources are available on demand, at scale through AWS. VMware vCenter users simply select which VMs to protect and the frequency of the restore points — up to 500, configurable by VM. HotLink DR Express automatically uploads the initial VM to Amazon S3 along with the ongoing differentials, without any manual steps, other consoles, appliances or conversion tools. Upon a VM failure or during a testing cycle, HotLink transforms the virtual machine and restores operations in AWS in minutes. Instances only incur Amazon EC2 charges during the period of the restoration; dormant VMs and differentials benefit for the extremely cost-effective Amazon S3 pricing. Alternatively, restoration back on-premise or to a VMware vCloud provider can be selected, if preferred. With HotLink DR Express, Amazon restored VMs are fully manageable by VMware vCenter, alongside on-premise VMs, and they are easily migrated back from AWS, whenever appropriate.
HotLink Adds Amazon EC2 Support for Microsoft SCVMM
Apr 10 13
HotLink Corp. recently added Amazon EC2 plug-in support for Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine Manager (SCVMM) to the latest release of HotLink Hybrid Express, the company's hybrid cloud management software. Managed services providers (MSPs) now have the ability to deploy, administer and manage hybrid on- and off-premise resources using existing virtualization management infrastructure through the solution. First, let's review how the company's solution works. HotLink Hybrid Express natively extends on-premise virtualization management infrastructure to public cloud resources. The product transforms metadata from public cloud platforms for on-premise management, treating them like on-premise hosts and virtual machines. HotLink Hybrid Express fully integrates data into a unified system: Separate management consoles are not needed.
