Reference Architecture for VMware



The Challenge

VMware is the industry leading private cloud solution for hosting new, modern applications built on scalable, NoSQL databases like MongoDB and Apache Cassandra. However, because of the hyper-scale, distributed nature of these databases traditional backup and recovery products, including native VMWare tools, are unable to protect these modern applications leaving organizations exposed to data loss and downtime.

The Solution: RecoverX

RecoverX is scale-out, elastic data protection software delivering point-in-time backup and automated recovery for modern applications built on distributed NoSQL databases hosted in VMWare private cloud environments. RecoverX software leads to significant TCO savings for customers when compared with native tools or alternative solutions. VMware has certified Datos IO RecoverX as a VMware Ready solution.

Features and Benefits

Datos IO RecoverX is built to address the unique data protection requirements of database administrators (DBAs) and application developers building applications on Apache Cassandra and DataStax databases. Unique capabilities include:

Scale-Out Data Management Architecture – CODR™

  • Consistent Orchestrated Distributed Recovery, Datos IO’s patented cloud-first, scale-out, data management architecture:
  • Uses elastic compute to autoscale application load
  • Transfers data in parallel to and from file-based and object-based secondary storage for multiple use cases, including data protection and testing and development
  • Stores protected data in native format
  • Removes dependency on media servers

Flexible and Granular Backup

  • Application-consistent point-in-time (PIT) backup of NoSQL databases
  • User-specified PIT backup
  • Databases never quiesced during backup
  • Recover to same or different cluster topology

Semantic Deduplication – Single-Copy Restore

  • Application-aware semantic deduplication eliminates redundant data
  • Consistent data versioning enables complete data recoverability, portability, and mobility
  • Recover data at table-level or file-level granularity

Query-able Recovery

  • Industry-first feature allows maximum flexibility for recovery
  • DevOps or database administrators (DBAs) can recover exact columns and rows without recovering the entire column family
  • Delivers near zero RTO
  • Ideal for refresh of Test/Dev environments

Data Protection Use Cases

  • Backup and Recovery (collection-level and/or database-level)
  • Non-operational recovery use cases such as migrations and test/dev
  • Support for private cloud deployment with applicability in VMWare environments and NFS storage
  • Support for public cloud deployment with applicability in cloud-native compute and storage services on AWS and GCP
