Wanclouds has announced that it has expanded the availability of its disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS) solution across all virtual machines (VMs). By expanding beyond Kubernetes and Virtual Private Clouds (VPCs) resources, Wanclouds now offers all-inclusive backup and recovery for Linux and Windows-based virtual servers and user data.
The Wanclouds DRaaS agent works within KVM, VMware vSphere, and Microsoft Hyper-V environments to provide live snapshot backups without disrupting the production environment. Developers don’t have to put environments into rescue mode or stop services; the agent simply works behind the scenes to take a hard snapshot. The snapshot captures a point-in-time copy of the VM, which is a much quicker process than a full backup. Moreover, the user has the flexibility to take a backup of the data without the full image of the VM and restore it on-demand across regions.
All backups are performed securely and stored in an encrypted format in the customer’s object store.
Wanclouds’ DRaaS is enabled through its SaaS-based automation suite VPC+, which provides a single pane of glass for managing and protecting hybrid cloud environments through a centralized cross-cloud solution. Wanclouds customers can leverage VPC+ for disaster recovery to back up all their VM and Kubernetes resources. They can restore it across different regions, physical servers, and clouds such as AWS, Google Cloud Platform (GCP), and IBM Cloud.
