I am in the market for a solution that provides a local device to backup 6 Windows servers (virtual & physical, sql, exchange, AD DCs, file servers, etc). If any of these 6 servers were to fail a virtual VM at the local appliance (server) would spin up to continue operations until I have time to fix the issue on the original failed server. This local appliance will also sync to another location on the east/west coasts (cloud). If the office were to go down during a disaster VMs of all 6 servers can be spun in the cloud with ipsec secure access for users to login from home or another location with Internet access.
However, the 6 vms in the cloud must be segregated from other client's data. Sharing of hardware is not an option. Our data cannot co-mingle with any other data residing on the same hardware, so completely separate hardware in the cloud is absolutetly necessary.
I was working with Datto (www.dattobackup.com
), and they offer the complete solution with the exception of offering a dedicated hardware solutions in the cloud. Do you know of any other competitors that offer an all in one solution as described above?
I prefer dealing with one company that is reputable and been aroud a while. I also am not interested in piecing everything together using different venders hardware/software solutions.
