On-demand Disaster Recovery (DR) service enablement through Software Defined Environments under hybrid clouds

The traditional Disaster Recovery service providers take days to setup and bring up the environment for their customers. Is that the level of service acceptable if you plan to quickly perform routine exercise of testing or bring up the service when the real disaster strikes?

In this session, we would like to share our experiences in adapting Software Defined Environments (SDE) components on heterogeneous compute (x86 and POWER) platforms with network overlays and network function virtualization to drive the replication of the environment setup, bring-up and tear-down in few hours, improving RTO effectively. SDE, by leveraging OpenStack at the core, automates the setup of the environment and the workload deployment to enhance the business resiliency across on-prem environment.

During this session, we will cover the following key topics:
    -> Automation of IT infrastructure resources (compute, storage and network) control and management through software
    -> Workload automation through Heat/HOT templates
    -> Cost reduction by leveraging Software Defined Storage
    -> Automated setup and deployment of network overlays and network function virtualization
    -> Simplification and enablement of DR setup, validation and share analysis on RTO improvements.
    -> Detailed Use-case scenarios of an on-prem environment
